You may wish to reuse shapes, icons, and other objects without having to track them down each time. In this video, learn know how to save these types of objects to pictures to easy access going forward.
- [Instructor] You may have objects in a PowerPoint presentation that you'd like to use in a Word document or an Excel spreadsheet, for example, or perhaps you have those objects in Word and would like to use them in PowerPoint. The point is that we can now take objects and save them as pictures to get easy access to them for any of our other apps, even outside of Office 365. We're here in PowerPoint because we do have different types of objects on our slides that can be saved as pictures and then reused elsewhere. You can see here, for example, I have a chart. And clicking anywhere in the chart shows me the object and its size and its shape. But perhaps I want the title with it. So clicking up here in the title and clicking the border selects it. Holding down Shift and clicking the graph down below selects both. And now I can take both of these and turn them into a single picture I can reuse elsewhere. Right-click and you'll see Save as Picture. Now, this will work in Excel. You'll see it in Word as well. If you have objects that you want to use elsewhere, clicking Save as Picture will save it to your Pictures folder by default. We can rename it. I'm going to call this StartupCosts. We can save to different types of graphic formats. You can see PNG, the default, but there's JPEG, for example, and a number of other options. I'm going to go with JPEG. And click Save. Now, when I do this, it gets saved to My Pictures, meaning I can use that in a Word document, an Excel spreadsheet, another application altogether because it's in My Pictures or even on another slide. For example, if I went to the H&P Academy and go up to Insert, now I have fast and easy access to it by clicking Pictures. This device takes me directly to that folder and there they are. StartupCosts, JPEG, Insert. And it gets inserted right on to my slide like so. So if you do have objects or multiple objects that are either grouped or not even grouped, you can put them together, save them as a picture, and have fast and easy access to them from your Pictures folder for use in other applications.
