I want to arrange three slides in my power point presentation..

I am doing screen caps from another app.

I'm pasting those screencaps into three Powepoint slides.

I want the user to see the same sized images on all three slides

I want the user to see the three images in the same position on all three slides

At this moment, I'm close, but they are just enough off so that the viewer is distracted.

I looked at the top 4 closest matches that suggested as possible duplicate questions, and I didn't see this exact question answered, so thanks for pointing me somewhere else if this is a needless dupe.

Did you try creating the first slide exactly how you wanted it, duplicating the slide, then changing the image to the desired one? – user304064 Mar 27 '14 at 17:16
Also it helps to turn the grid on for alignment purposes. – James Mar 27 '14 at 17:51
@bobSmith1432, Yes, that's how I got the sizes wrong; pretty close, but still wrong – User.1 Mar 27 '14 at 17:53
In office 2007 and 2010 it is on the View tab under the show section. – James Mar 27 '14 at 17:56
The screen captures have to be exact. What I've done in the past is to capture the first screen and open it up in or any graphics program with layer capability. I then add the send screen capture to a layer in and manually match the two slides up. Most of my work has a transparent background. I then save the two layers separately. In PPT, I get the first slide exactly how I want it and the copy that slide down. I the change the picture to the next inline. Works beautifully. – wbeard52 Apr 18 '14 at 22:59
