How to Convert a GIF to PowerPoint

By Ellis Davidson

Graphic Interchange Format (GIF) images are a standard format for posting graphics on a website. Images pulled from a website that were originally saved in GIF format will retain this format when they are saved to your hard drive. Create PowerPoint slides from a GIF image by pasting it into a PowerPoint slide.

Step 1

Save the GIF image to your local hard drive.

Step 2

Double-click on the GIF image to open it in your default graphics application.

Step 3

Select the entire GIF image and copy it to the clipboard.

Step 4

Open the PowerPoint file in which you want to save the GIF image; create a new slide if necessary.

Paste the GIF image into the PowerPoint slide, resizing if necessary.
