Placing ARAS Images in PowerPoint Presentations
If you want to show a highly-magnified part of an image, you'll get a sharper picture if you first zoom in within ARAS by clicking on the image in the record and then copy that enlarged image over to your PowerPoint slide.
Use ARAS Online to find the image you want. Be sure to choose a full-sized image on a "record page," where the commentary is on the right side. Then, put your mouse over the image and copy it onto your clipboard. For example, in Windows (see example below), simply right-click and select Copy.
Switch to PowerPoint and pick the slide that you want the image to go into.
Put your mouse over that slide and paste from the clipboard. In Windows (see example below), simply right-click and select Paste.
You can now stretch and move the image around on your PowerPoint slide to fit your needs. Stretch the image by clicking on it once and then dragging any corner. Move an image by clicking on it once and then dragging the interior. It's OK if parts of the images extend beyond the edge of the slide, as these won't show when you project the slide.
PowerPoint also lets you crop images. You'll need the Picture Toolbar, which is sometimes hidden. To unhide it in PowerPoint 2003, right-click and choose Show Picture Toolbar. Then click on the toolbar's crop tool and drag the pictures edges to crop them out (see example below).
Use ARAS Online to find the image you want. Be sure to choose a full-sized image on a "record page," where the commentary is on the right side.
You can drag and drop the image directly into a PowerPoint slide. Alternatively, use the following steps to copy and paste the image into your slide.
Place your mouse over the image.
Press and hold the control button (ctrl).
Click your mouse.
A menu will appear that gives you some options.
Choose "Save Image As" from the menu.
A box will pop up that prompts you to name the image whatever you like and to choose a location for the image.
Once you have named the image and chosen a location for it - hit the "Save" button.
Go to the location that you picked. You should find a jpeg of the image in that location.
You can then insert it into PowerPoint by choosing Insert > Picture > From File from the PowerPoint menu or copy and paste (command (apple) C to copy, command V to paste) it into PowerPoint.
