New Tool for Batch Importing Images to PowerPoint

Posted 9/11/2015 by Lynn Cunningham

A new tool called MetashotPPT facilitates the batch importing of images and metadata into a PowerPoint presentation. MetaShotPpt takes a folder of image files and imports them all into a PowerPoint presentation in one step, placing each image in a single slide. Additionally, if the file has embedded metadata, the metadata can be imported into the presenter notes and/or the slide. The user has the option of importing the metadata fields for Title, Creator, Location, Keywords, Description, Date Created, and Copyright Notice.

Please see the link for instructions and to download the tool. MetashotPPT was developed from a project grant awarded by the Visual Resources Foundation. System requirements: OS 10.6 or above, Microsoft PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.
