[Solved] Adding an image into a slide

Postby AshleyRose » Sun Apr 26, 2015 2:13 pm

Hello.

I'm trying to add a single image into my slide. A small one in the bottom left corner. Whenever I insert it, it comes up as a tiled background. I can't figure out how to have it just be the single image. TIA.

Greetings and welcome to the community forum!

It's a known problem with the current release. I believe the work around is to start with a slide that's completely empty: no empty object frames. If you go to the slide layout selector, the first choice there is "Blank Slide".

Thank you, acknak!

I created a new slide and added the image first. Which worked perfectly!

I resorted to typing disgraceful and terrible profanity into the internet search engines to arrive at this answer which is hugely appreciated!
