If I paste a graphic into PowerPoint it gets automatically enlarged, however I just want the graphic in it's original size. How can I do that? Thank you very much! I am on PowerPoint 2007.

After inserting the picture, try Reset Picture & Size in the Format tab under Picture Tools. Or for the longer method, right-click on the picture and use the Scale option in Size and Position to set the height and width to 100%.

As I found out, PowerPoint already pastes the graphic in it's original size, however zooming was enabled by default (check the lower right corner of powerpoint, set it to 100% if it isn't already at 100%), so not the picture was resized but the whole slide. I didn't notice that. @panickal: Thank you anyway!
