TIP: Make several images the same size

When you import images into PowerPoint using Insert, Picture, From File, they seldom come in at exactly the size you had in mind.

You can use the Starter Set's Pick Up and Place Exactly tools to resize images (or anything else) in one click. Here's how:

First, set your options. You only need to do this once.

Next, insert one image using Insert, Picture, From File. Size and position it as needed.

Pick (memorize) up its size and position:

Now import another image or select an image on the same slide (or on another slide) and click the Hammer button. The image is automatically resized and repositioned to your specifications.

Import another. Click the hammer.
Import another. Click the hammer.

And so on ...
