making images in photoshop for powerpoint
I was asked at the last second today to create a powerpoint presentation for a BSF meeting, I'm not to use the usual template but to create one. I had an idea in mind so I created a banner with the school logo.
Soon as I drop it in to powerpoint and resize it suddenly looks rubbish.
is a the any rules I need to follow or a certain resolution, size I need to set them to before droping images into powerpoint?

The bigger the better
I think, but don't take my word for it... a standard PPT 2003 slide is ~ 750 x 1000 pixels.
It works similar to word etc I think, if a page is 8" x 12" - it would be around 800 x 1200 pixels (x100)

I agree the larger the better, but the problem is high resolution images can be a couple of megabytes in size. Not ideal for PowerPoint. I think you'll just need to play with resolution/file sizes to get the right combination.
The only other tip I can offer is when you have a picture within PowerPoint, highlight it, then hold the Ctrl key down. If you then drag the corner this will re-size the image, but keep it in proportion. Hopes this makes sense

Yep, thanks for that... I picked that trick up using photoshop and found out today with my delight that it can be done in powerpoint.

Another option is to match you graphics to the res of the display being used.
