Welcome to the Presentation Hacks: Using Photos in PowerPoint video series! In these lessons, a Duarte designer shares some of the fundamental tools of using photos in PowerPoint.

After you’ve identified the photo you want to use in your presentation, you’ll want to edit the basics of the photo. This likely includes cropping, resizing, and compressing the photo.

Here are some of the things we’ll teach you to do in this video:

  • Crop away only a portion of a photo
  • Properly resize your photos so they don’t get distorted
  • Use full-screen photos to break up a presentation
  • Compress your presentation file to easily share
