How to insert a picture slideshow into publisher

Updated April 17, 2017

Microsoft Publisher is a desktop publishing application that is part of the Microsoft Office suite of applications. It provides a completely customisable canvas, where the user can insert nearly any type of digital media that his publication requires. Additionally, Publisher integrates easily with other types of Microsoft Office files, so inserting objects from Word, Excel or PowerPoint is well supported. This support includes the ability to insert a previously created picture slideshow into any location within a Publisher document.

Click on the "Start" or Windows button in the lower-left corner of your screen, then choose "Programs" or "All Programs."

Scroll to "Microsoft Office" then select "Microsoft Publisher."

Pick the attributes of your new Publisher document, or click "File" then "Open" to open an existing document.

Click "Insert" at the top of the screen, then choose the "Object" option.

Click the "Create from file" option, then click the "Browse" button to locate your PowerPoint slide show.

Click the "Display as icon" option, then click the "OK" button.

Select the slideshow icon in your document, then drag it to the appropriate location within your Publisher document.

Tip

Customise the speed and styling of your PowerPoint slideshow from the PowerPoint application to alter the way that it is presented.
