Action for PowerPointTM 2008
By Jim Gordon
Automator Action allows you to import an entire iPhoto album, or
selected pictures from iPhoto albums into your PowerPointô
Photos are imported one photo per
slide. Photos that are larger than the slide are scaled to fit the
slide. Photos smaller than the slide are displayed at their full
size. InsertPictureForPPT2008 can not import photos or pictures
from a folder. Your pictures or photos must be in an iPhoto album
prior to running InsertPictureForPPT2008.
