How to Cite Pictures in PowerPoint? - Superside

When putting together a PowerPoint presentation, especially one that you will share inside the company or with clients, it is extremely important to credit the pictures and images you use. Unlike Word, PowerPoint does not offer a feature to add a caption to a photo, so the process is a little more complex.

How to Cite Pictures in PowerPoint:

  • Open the PowerPoint presentation and select the image you want to credit.

  • Under the Insert tab, select Text Box. Move the mouse over the picture and drag a box. You can move or resize it if necessary.

  • Type the credits in the text box you just created. You can change the font type, size or color, just as you would do with any text in PowerPoint.

  • Once you are done, click outside the picture and you will see how the credits appear on top of the image.

  • To make sure the credits stay in the same position, even if you move or resize the image, you need to group them together. Click on the image and then, while holding Ctrl, click on the text box. Under the Picture Tools Format tab, click Group.You can also group using hotkeys (ctrl+g).

How to cite pictures on Mac

The process is almost the same on Mac; the only difference is the grouping process:

  • Once you add the text box with the credit, click on it. While pressing Command, click on the image.
  • Under the Shape Format or the Picture Format tabs, click on Group.
  • If the Group tab is not visible, click on Arrange to display it.
