    Let me start off by saying I am new :D I had a pc computer for years and 2 years ago, the whole family switched to macs and we love them and never looked back at pc.
    Anyways I need some quick help. I am making a powerpoint for school using the microsoft powerpoint. I did the first square with the title of the project. Now I have 75 pictures or so I need to upload. How do I do this? make new slides? each picture i want its own slide for. How do I do this??

    First: I don't know your intend, but a presentation containing 75 slides is huge, what do you want to communicate to your audience? How much time you have?

    Second: You can access your pictures from the tools palette (second tab: Objects: Pictures). You can drag your picture directly on the slide, but you manually need to create a new slide first (Shift+Cmd+N on the keyboard). I don't know if you could automate this, but I doubt.

    In your case, I would simply present the pictures as a separate slideshow. Easiest would be to load them all into preview and hit the slideshow button.
