Keeping the look of your picture slides (actually, all slides) consistent adds value to your presentation.

While you can achieve this by working on each slide individually, you will have to spend an inordinate amount of time making sure that the pictures look consistent — and even then, you may not be too happy with the results. You can get over this problem by using a new slide layout with a Picture placeholder. In this tutorial we’ll explore how to work with a Picture placeholder you add to a new slide layout.
