How to Lock a Picture in PowerPoint

Microsoft PowerPoint lets you create presentations for both work and school. With the program, it's possible to make slide shows that include all the information you want to share, along with images, music and video. If you insert an image or piece of clip art into a PowerPoint presentation, you may need to re-size it if it's too large or small. This can lead to an image with uneven proportions. However, an option is available that helps you make your image's proportions remain the same.
