I need to achieve that 20 images are at the same level in PowerPoint without adjusting each of them. How do I do this?

If I understand you correctly, you are looking for where the "Align left" / "Align Top" etc. functions have gone which used to be on the "Drawing" Toolbar under "Draw/Align or Distribute" in PowerPoint 2003? – Jonas Heidelberg May 3 '11 at 19:55
Yes, that is correct! – David May 3 '11 at 19:56
please accept Jonas's answer if it worked for you to close out the question. – variant May 18 '11 at 17:51

Updated answer

As discussed in the comments above the option you are looking for is called "Align left" / "Align Top". In PowerPoint 2010, you need to select all images and then go to

Picture Tools | Format | Arrange | Align | Align Left, as shown here:

In PowerPoint 2003 it can be found on the "Drawing" Toolbar under "Draw/Align or Distribute". If you knew where to find it in 2003, to find out where it went in PP2010 have a look at the page

Learn where menu and toolbar commands are in Office 2010 and related products

The Excel2010 spreadsheet linked there contains the answer:

Why didn't you post your comment above as an answer? This one here is not very useful and at least having the options for PowerPoint 2003 would be an answer ;) – slhck May 3 '11 at 20:26
Agreed - I'll rewrite the answer to include the information from my comment above. – Jonas Heidelberg May 4 '11 at 8:23
