Drag the Resizing Handles
Just as you did for the clip art, resize the photograph on the slide, by dragging the corner resizing handles. Using the corner resizing handles will ensure that there is no distortion to your picture.
When you hover your mouse over a resizing handle, the mouse pointer changes to a two headed arrow. This two headed arrow is always a resizing arrow in all graphic programs.
To move the picture to a new location, hover your mouse over the center of the picture. The mouse pointer becomes a four headed arrow. This is a move arrow in all graphic programs.
Note - It is important to note that even if you resize your photo to a small visual size on the slide, it still retains its original large file size. For better use of large pictures on slides you are wise to optimize the pictures first, before inserting them into the slide.
