Default positioning element of a screenshot on a slide

Hi everyone,

I try to make it simple. I pasted a screenshot into a ppt slide. That screenshot has a black background with two white dots. On the next slide, I have almost the same screenshot but the 2 white dots are in a slight different position. When I am moving slide to slide, I would like to have the 2 white dots at the exact same position on each slide. That way, the person see always the same reference slide after slide and he is not confuse by the different sizes of the screenshots. I used to do it manually by re positioning and re sizing each screenshot but it is very long and inaccurate.
Obviously, I can have up to 4 white dots on the first screenshot to match with the second, third... screenshot.
If you have knowledge in spatial data, it is like georeferencing an image but using the slide pixels instead of coordinates.

Maybe this would be less time consuming than adjusting all screenshots pixel by pixel?

1) Add all screenshots to the slides
2) On the first slide: draw the white dots as PPT shapes on top of the existing 'screenshot white dots'
3) On all slides: cover the 'screenshot white dots' with a black rectangle
4) Copy the PPT-shape white dots from the first slide to all slides

If you make the shape a group of the black shape and the two circles you can set the left and top of the circles independently of the black shape. This would be time consuming but it would be possible to write a macro to do it for you.
