Working with Picture Slide Layouts in PowerPoint

Slide Layouts are a very useful feature because they let you use a preset arrangement of placeholders repeatedly, resulting in consistent looking slides. And yes, you can also create your own custom Slide Layouts. While very few users create their own custom Slide Layouts, even fewer will create a custom Slide Layout for pictures! That’s regrettable since Picture Slide Layouts can make your slides look so unique.
