Creating a Photo Collage in PowerPoint

In this clip, I show students how to download a template from the Microsoft Office Community Submitted templates, use image placeholders to insert images, and use some of the new PowerPoint 2010 cropping and recoloring tools to adjust photos inside the template placeholders. I also demonstrate how to adjust the PowerPoint file so that PowerPoint does not compress pictures upon insertion–something that is very useful if you’d like to print higher quality photos right from PowerPoint.
