There are times when you want a different picture on each slide — yet although the pictures need to be different, their position, formatting, and size may be required to be the same in successive slides. While you can achieve this manually, you will spend an inordinate amount of time making sure that the pictures look consistent slide after slide — and even then, you may not be too happy with the results or the time it takes to make changes. You can get over this problem by using a new slide layout with a picture placeholder. As we learnt in previous tutorials, a placeholder is a boilerplate container that you can use to fill in with all sorts of content types such as text, pictures, charts, SmartArt graphics, etc. In this tutorial we’ll explore how to work with a picture placeholder you add to a new slide layout.
