How do I import an EMF or PNG into my presentation?

There are sometimes two types of downloads for a PowerFramework: there will always be a PowerPoint download, but there might also be a graphic download. If you download the PowerPoint document containing the EMF or PNG, than just copy it from the download and paste onto your slide. If you download the graphic file, then follow one of the two methods described below:

A simple way to do this is to "drag and drop"

  1. Be sure you are on the page in your presentation that you would like to import the PowerFramework
  2. Find the downloaded graphic on your computer and drag it onto the page. IMPORTANT, do not drag the graphic and drop it on top of an existing text field or graphic (you will only get the name of the graphic and not the graphic itself)
  3. a) PNGs cannot be ungrouped, so just begin sizing and placement in your presentation or b) select the EMF and ungroup it; you will see a popup that says, "This is an imported picture. Do you want to convert it to a Microsoft Office drawing object?" Select "Yes" and then ungroup again (there will be a blank field behind the PowerFramework, which you can just delete; this happens with all imported, editable clipart)
  4. You are ready to begin customizing the PowerFramework.

Another method is to insert the graphic into your PowerPoint Presentation

  1. From the "Insert" menu select "Picture" and then "From File"
    (or click on the "Insert Picture" icon)
  2. Browse to the location where you have saved the downloaded graphic
  3. Once found, double click it and it will show up on your page.
  4. You can either ungroup it now and start customizing the PowerFramework or size it now and then ungroup. If you are using several PowerFrameworks together on a page or even on different pages, you may want to import them all and resize together for a consistent size/look/feel. After sizing your graphic(s):
  5. a) PNGs cannot be ungrouped, so just begin sizing and placement in your presentation or b) select the EMF and ungroup it; you will see a popup that says, "This is an imported picture. Do you want to convert it to a Microsoft Office drawing object?" Select "Yes" and then ungroup again (there will be a blank field behind the PowerFramework, which you can just delete; this happens with all imported, editable clipart)
  6. In some cases, the line will be black and there will be no fill in the PowerFramework. Select it by clicking on the line.

You are ready to begin customizing the PowerFramework.
