Inserting multiple pictures in powerpoint 2010

I have 57 pictures pre-sized, post processed and ready to insert into an existing powerpoint show. The page size is 1600 x 1000 pixels. The images are size to fit this ratio. I have the master set up at that size ready to receive the pictures. If I select "new slide>insert picture album then select the pictures and click create, then powerpoint ignores the new slide I selected and inserts all of the pictures into a new "photo album" sized at the default size. Try as I can, I cannot get the insert album function to respect the size I have selected. The show is 100% pictures.

Can anyone help?

Windows Ultimate, 64 bit, Powerpoint 2010
Thanks,

Hello,

Despite the placement of the command on the Insert ribbon, it seems that Powerpoint does not INSERT the photo album into the existing presentation, but rather starts a new presentation with the default 4:3 aspect ratio.

You can then edit the master page and change the aspect ratio to 16:10, but all images will be skewed. You will need to reset them and position them again.

It might be faster to just create a custom sized show and insert the images manually.

cheers, teylyn
