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.

  1. I copied the web address for the template, but it’s not a direct link. Where is it? I am really interested in printing collage photos at home for free. The template looks fabulous. So many different themes I can apply it to.
