I've never had any trouble putting tons of photos into a powerpoint.
First I edit, crop, re-size, ect. the photos I want and save them as jpegs.
I save them in folders where I can find them. I always save in 72 dpi even
if it's a scanned image.
When I'm in powerpoint, say on slide 2, I go to the pull down menu "insert"
and pull down to "picture". Then I go to "from file" and a window opens
letting me search my computer for my folder. Then I click on the image I want
and it is inserted into my power point page. Then you can use the tabs
corners to resize it. It's that simple. Most versions of powerpoint have icons
on the side which are shortcuts to do the same thing. Either way it's
I hope this makes sense and is the answer to your question.

I'm doing a presentation on creating effective powerpoints next month and
I could not imagine a powerpoint without visuals.
