In this article, we will show you walk you through all the methods of importing photos into PowerPoint as slides.

Step 5: Click Insert.

Step 8: Click the Create button.

That’s it.

If you are dealing with photos with complicated sizes (dimensions unsuitable for slides), you may want to adjust the parameters on the Photo Album window before you click the Create button. Or you can edit the photos first in a suitable image editing program before you import them into slides.
