#326 Precise Placement of Images in PowerPoint

Have you ever had trouble getting an image placed in exactly the spot you wanted? Maybe you wondered if your mouse was going bad? Or maybe that you have an unsteady hand? Well it’s not you nor your mouse. PowerPoint (and all the Office products) are built to move images in small incremental steps – which is fine most of the time.  However, there are scenarios when this could drive you crazy, so let’s see how you can maintain your sanity AND get that image to go exactly where you want it.

Hold down the ALT key on your keyboard while you drag the image into place and you will be able to place it anywhere you want…not just on the incremental points that PowerPoint defaults to.
