Assign Actions To Clip Art Or Pictures In PowerPoint 2007

One of the nifty features of PowerPoint is that you can assign an action to clip art or a picture. When you click or mouse over the object, a specific action occurs. You can assign actions to clip art, pictures or text within a SmartArt graphic.

To assign an action to clip art in PPT 2007:

  1. Insert the clip art picture to which you want to add to your slide.
  2. Select the picture added in step 1.
  3. On the Insert tab, within the Links group, click Action.
  4. From the Action Settings box, select the Mouse Click tab or the Mouse Over tab.
  5. Select one of the following actions:
    1. None — no action is associated with the picture
    2. Hyperlink to — links to a destination such as another slide in the presentation
    3. Run program — runs the selected program
    4. Run macro — runs the selected macro
  6. Click OK.

Now, when you click or mouse over the picture, the action your specified in step 5 occurs.
