If you're using Windows XP, you can download and install the Microsoft PowerToy, Image Resizer, and use it to resize graphics for use in PowerPoint. Locate the install at www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/
xppowertoys.mspx
and install it. Then, follow these steps to resize graphics for PowerPoint:
1. Browse to your image by selecting Start | Programs | Accessories | Windows Explorer, and then navigating to the location of your images.
2. Right-click on the image you wish to resize and choose Resize Pictures.
3. In the resulting Resize Pictures dialog box, select the option button for one of the default sizes in the Select A Size section, or click the Advanced button, choose the Custom option button, and enter the desired pixel sizes in the text boxes.
4. Click OK. A copy of the image is created in the same location, but as the new size and with “(WinCE)” added to the name (e.g., 2004.07.18u (WinCE).jpg).
For Windows Vista/7 users, you can download a similar Image Resizer here: www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,23432/
