Default Copy formatting setting between images on the slide


Hi,

Is there a way to quickly copy formatting (size, line, line color, shadow) between pictures on the slide. I have slides with multiple pictures that all have to be formatted in the same way and changing every setting manually is veeeeeeery slow. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!

Set one picture as you need.

In the HOME tab double click the format painter

Click each picture

ESC key to finish

Hi, I tried that yesterday. Format painter works for text boxes but does nothing to images, at least in my case (I'm using power point 2010).

Format Painter definitely works on images (see this screencast) so there's something weird here. Are these just normal images (not a background for example)

I tried this also and could not get it to work. (excel 2007)
I even watch the short demo.

We must be missing something.
Thanks,
Gary

If you use Insert> Picture and use the sample images that come with 2010 does it work?
Are you saving as a pptx?

Now I think I understand what's wrong.
Format only addresses Brightness, Contrast and Re-color.

We are interested in re-sizing all of the pictures in a Presentation (at least I am)

Googled and got this tip.
1. Write a macro to re-size each picture
or
2. Re-size one picture to the desired size, then click on the next picture and then hit Ctrl + Y (re-do), and repeat that for each picture in the slide.

HTH,
Gary

Yeah, that's not working either.......

Here is some code I highjacked from DerbyDad03.

Sub PictureSizer()
For NumSlide = 1 To ActivePresentation.Slides.Count
ActivePresentation.Slides(NumSlide).Select
For Each Picture In ActiveWindow.Selection.SlideRange.Shapes
Picture.Select
Picture.LockAspectRatio = msoFalse
Picture.Height = 59.88 'Change this number to fit your needs
Picture.Width = 82.38 'Change this number to fit your needs
Next
Next
End Sub

Try this:

Select the picture to use as a "template" then run the code:

Code:
Sub resize_pics()
Dim oshp As Shape
Dim oPic As Shape
Dim picH As Single
Dim picW As Single
Dim osld As Slide
If ActiveWindow.Selection.Type = ppSelectionNone Then GoTo err
If ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Count <> 1 Then GoTo err
Set oshp = ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange(1)

For Each osld In ActivePresentation.Slides
For Each oPic In osld.Shapes

If oPic.Type = msoPicture Then
picW = oPic.Width
picH = oPic.Height
oPic.LockAspectRatio = True
oPic.Width = oshp.Width
oPic.Left = oPic.Left - (oshp.Width - picW) / 2
oPic.Top = oPic.Top - (oshp.Height - picH) / 2
End If

If oPic.Type = msoPlaceholder Then
If oPic.PlaceholderFormat.ContainedType = msoPicture Then
picW = oPic.Width
picH = oPic.Height
oPic.LockAspectRatio = True
oPic.Width = oshp.Width
oPic.Left = oPic.Left - (oshp.Width - picW) / 2
oPic.Top = oPic.Top - (oshp.Height - picH) / 2
End If
End If

Next oPic
Next osld
Exit Sub
err:
MsgBox "Please select ONE shape and retry!", vbCritical
End Sub

A little office add on called PPTools can copy format between images but I noticed that it doesn't always work consistently.
