Each item on a slide is called a ‘layer’. You can add as many layers as you want to a single slide. Layers can be photos, video clips, borders, etc…
Adding Multiple Layers to a Slide at Once:
When multiple images are selected in the file list, you can use the ‘drag and drop’ method to easily add them to a single slide, all at once. Here’s how.
- Hold CTRL on the keyboard and click on each layer you want to add from the File List.
- Continue to hold CTRL while you drag & drop the selected images onto your slide.
Once your layers are added to a slide, double-click to open the Slide Options dialog. There you can re-position each layer and add motion or adjustments to create your own effects. Or, try using a built-in Slide Style like the one shown in the examples here – Scatter from Effects Pack 6.
Using the same drag and drop method, you can add layers to new slides or slides that already contain content. Just drag and drop (with CTRL held down) and add to any slide.
