These layouts can be used for developing photo collages. Additionally, there can be a combination of text in some segments and photos in others. Layouts like these help to make a slide that has a brief message more interesting and provides visual support to the message.
This series contains 3-segment to 10-segment layout configurations, which should provide enough variation to create collages with different numbers of segments and still maintain a consistent look. If you are using PowerPoint 2007, you can also tint the photographs to give them the same "value." Many times the perfect photograph cannot be used because the colors don't sync with the rest of the collage or the template colors. The ability to tint photographs in PowerPoint 2007 eliminates this problem. You can still "tint" in pre-PowerPoint 2007 versions, but it takes a couple of steps. Refer to the tutorial for ways to do this.
