    Bulk Import into Powerpoint

    Does anybody know a way to bulk import photos into powerpoint (2003/2010)?

    I want to try and put one on each slide so they can be randomized for the last day of term.

    Or anybody think of another way to randomly cycle through pictures from a folder?

    We are going to embarress all the Year 11's in there leavers assembly by putting there Yr7 photos on the projector!

    Powerpoint 2010 can create a slide show from a folder of images. It's called a photo album and it's in the insert menu

    I think you'll have to click played at a kiosk in there and it will loop.

    Edit: Make sure you give some timing on the slides or it will do nothing

    I don't think it will do random by itself. You could do it with a macro but there my knowledge stops or at least slows down

    Ah ok - i think i will just randomize the slides (manually!) - rather then alphabetical order!

    Just in case you want to play with the macro thing I found this

    Code:
    Sub randjump()
    randomize
    Dim Inum As Integer
    Inum = Int(7 * Rnd + 4)
    ActivePresentation.SlideShowWindow.View.GotoSlide (Inum)
    End Sub
    that will randomise the slide order but is triggered from a click so you would to add a timer to it to make it wait instead

    Found on PowerPoint vba code samples
