Wrap Text Around Square Images on PowerPoint Slides
Now having said that, there are times when slides can contain a lot of text. One example that comes to mind is when students use PowerPoint as a story writing tool and therefore more text would be added to the slide.
What would be nice is if PowerPoint had a text wrapping feature to surround pictures with the relevant text, much like in a newspaper column. Alas, that is not the case. But -- this step-by-step tutorial, using a square (or rectangular) picture, will take you through a "workaround" in order for you to do just that.
In this tutorial, we will insert a picture onto the slide, leaving room to "wrap text" on all four sides of the image. Let's get started.
- Insert a Picture on the Slide
- Navigate to the slide you want to use.
- Click on the Insert tab of the ribbon.
- At the left side of the ribbon, click on the Picture button.
- Navigate to the folder containing the desired picture and click the Insert button to add it to the slide.
- Resize the picture if necessary, and move to the location of your choice on the slide.
