With a Mac and several hundred pictures I want to insert into PowerPoint, I’ve learned that this is not possible, like it is with a PC. But with this Automator app I found, it is possible. With this app, you can, in addition to selecting multiple images:
- You can also select multiple folders of images at the same time. All will be combined into one PowerPoint slideshow.
- You can choose a top level folder or folders and the script will select all jpeg or jpg images within the folder(s).
Once the zipped file is downloaded, double-click to un-zip the app and save it to your desktop or elsewhere for future use.
Simply double-click the app, navigate to the image folder(s), select, and click on choose. A PowerPoint slideshow will be created with the images. Note that it’s best to not have an already existing PowerPoint slideshow open when you do this.
If you have images that are 1024 pixels wide but taller than 768 (or an equivalent ratio), you will see that the images bleed off the bottom of the slide. It’s fairly easy to spot these and resize them as needed.
