How to Resize Multiple Images In PowerPoint
Note: Watch this short tutorial screencast or follow the quick steps below that complement this video.
1. Open the Presentation You Want to Work On
Let's start off on a slide that has multiple images on it. These are different size images, but we can scale them at the same time with a simple trick.
2. Choose the PowerPoint Images to Resize
Multi-select images by holding Ctrl on the keyboard, and then let's click on each of the images that you want to resize.
Then click on one of the handles on the corner of an image and drag it down. Notice that all the images are kind of being scaled at the same time proportionately.
3. Resize Pictures in PowerPoint
Now what if you want to get the images all to exactly the same size at least on one side?
I'm going to switch slides and hold Cntrl for each of these images. And then let's come up to Picture Tools > Format here on the ribbon. In either the height or the width box, let's put in a numerical value and press Enter.
All of the images will take on the same size.
You can keep trying different numbers here to scale the images. It's a quick and easy way to give your images a more consistent look throughout your presentation.
