took pictures of kids projects and was told to make a power point slide show. added bubble text (like cartoons talking) but when clicked to see slide show instead of individual pictures, the pictures were hugh. When viewing slides individually, you can see the bubble text boxes and all, but as a show, everything is gigantic! How do we get the slides to look like the individual pictures with the bubble texts? thanks

When you're viewing them individually, the program that you're using to open the photo is automatically resizing it to fit the screen. Your ppp isn't.
Copy all of your target photos to a new folder and resize each one individually in a photo edit program. Then put the show together.
Or set your viewing preferences to size them to fit.

PowerPoint and photos - arrgh. The photo edit works and most of th etime size to fit does. If I only have a few pictures in a presentation, I use insert pictur from file and then resize them in powerpoint manually. If there's a lot, I do the thing arnbutt suggested.

99 percent of photo's you take with your digital camera will have to be resized before inserting them in almost any type of presentation.

...it might be too late for this project but for future reference....

A great freeware that's out there and is very powerful for handling graphics is Irfanview. You can download it and it is quite handy. One of the features it has is a good ability to resize and resample pics.

Here's a little more detail:

Open powerpoint, select the format of screen you want (titled, blank, etc),

Click "Insert", choose location from (Clip art, file, etc), browse to the right picture you want, click insert.

This will take you back to the slide with the giant picture. Left click toward one corner of the giant picture and drag the whole thing to the diagonally opposite corner. You might have to do this several times until you find the "Corner handle" (a little round dot on the corner of the giant picture. Now click and hold on the corner handle and drag toward the center of the picture. This will maintain the ratio and not distort the width or length of the picture. Again, you might have to drag several times to resize it small enough to fit.

Sounds complicated but is easy and quick after the first one. Good luck.

Here is another way

If you have PowerPoint 2003.

Create a new presentation.
You then have the option to create a photo album.
follow the instructions.
The pictures will be resized automatically.
You will be able to insert text boxes, etc.

Hope this helps

Kevin
