Insert Offline/online Pictures

Insert Offline/online Pictures can make your presentations more interesting and engaging. You can insert a picture from a file on your computer onto any slide. PowerPoint even includes tools for finding online pictures and adding screenshots to your presentation.

To insert a picture from a file:

  1. Select the Insert tab, then click the Pictures command in the Images group.

You can also click the Pictures command in a placeholder to insert images.

Inserting online pictures

If you don’t have the picture you want on your computer, you can find a picture online to add to your presentation. PowerPoint offers two options for finding online pictures:

OneDrive: You can insert an image stored on your OneDrive (previously called SkyDrive). You can also link other online accounts with your Microsoft account, such as Facebook or Flickr.Screenshot of PowerPoint 2013

Bing Image Search: You can use this option to search the Internet for images. By default, Bing only shows images that are licensed under Creative Commons, which means you can use them for your own projects. However, you should go to the image’s website to see if there are any restrictions on how it can be used.

Previously, you also had the option to insert clip art images from Office.com, but this service has been discontinued. Instead, you can use Bing Image Search to find images for your presentation.
