You've got a collection of #pictures that you want to display neatly - but they're all different sizes.....
Need to know a quick way to display them and resize them attractively?
Well there are 2 solutions - you can use #SmartArt in Microsoft Word or PowerPoint or #Design_Ideas in PowerPoint - your pictures will be organised very quickly for you - you can make them all the same size or you can choose an orderly arrangement that you like.
First Way - Use SmartArt
Below are 6 pictures of different sizes and orientation.
Step 2: After selecting #Picture_Layout (this is actually SmartArt), a new layout appears almost instantly with the pictures automatically resized and reordered!
Step 3: Add text if you want
If you don't like the design you have chosen you can select the SmartArt arrangement by clicking on the outside border.
Choose the SmartArt Design Tab, then Layouts.
Run your mouse over the options and select another layout that you like.
12 pictures is probably about the maximum you would use - any more and they won't fit on the page or into the SmartArt layouts.
Second Way - use the #Design_Ideas that appear in #PowerPoint (only in some versions like Office 365)
You can only put 6 images or less on a slide for Design Ideas to work.
If you don't want a white background - choose the Design Tab, then Format Background and select one that you like - plain, gradient or picture.
Experiment with your #pictures to achieve great layout effects that compliment your document or presentation that look great and capture your reader's interest.
