Understanding Presentations – Insert Objects
Insert a graphical object (picture, image, drawn object) into a slide.
To insert an object like an image or a graphical object to a specific location in a slide, first of all bring the text pointer to that location by clicking at that location once. Now click on ‘Insert’ from the main menu bar. This gives us a drop-down menu. In this drop-down, we have a number of options.
To insert an image, click on ‘Image’ from the drop-down. This will open the ‘Insert Image’ dialog box. Go to the location of the required image from this dialog and select the image and then click on ‘Open’. This will insert the image to the specified location in the presentation.
Similarly, to insert a graphical object, click on ‘Media’ and from the resulting menu, click on ‘Clip Art Gallery’. This will open the ‘Gallery’ at the right side of the Impress main window where we have the different types of shapes listed. We can insert these predefined shapes to the slides by selecting the required shapes from this menu and then dragging and dropping those shapes into the slide.
This is how we can insert graphical objects into a presentation in Impress.
Select a graphical object.
To select an image or a graphical object, just click once on the image or the object and the image or the object will get surrounded by eight different green coloured small squares. This is how we select an image or a graphical object in Impress.
