    inserting multiple emf files (PPT 2003)

    I would like to be able to insert multiple emf files into powerpoint 2003. Each file should be on a new slide. Also, I would like to be able to set a default size and position for these files. Insert/Picture/Photo Album sort of does what I want, but it puts a fat black border around each slide and has the wrong color background. The design template I used and the result are attached. Suggestions?
    Thanks.

    Good morning

    In PowerPoint 2003 right click your graph and select save picture as, save the graph as a GIF image and then insert it as a picture on your blank slide and you will not have the thick border shown in your test.

    Cheers

    jepalmer,

    Select the graph with the big border and then choose "Line Color" from the "lower" draw toolbar. Then choose "no line" -
    Yes, it's a pain to do this with every graph.

    Alternatives are to try out the other 'multiple' picture inserters....

    But I'm not sure if they class EMFs as a 'picture'
