Spice up your PowerPoint presentation with Adobe Stock

Eye-catching visuals go a long way toward capturing an audience’s attention.

Adobe promises that finding the perfect image to illustrate presentations is easier than ever with the new Microsoft PowerPoint add-in from Adobe Stock.

Users can search for images by keyword, explore curated collections, or even perform a visual search by uploading an image of their own and having Adobe Stock find something similar.

Here’s a rundown of how to get the most out of Adobe Stock in PowerPoint: 

Visual Search

Visual Search is powered by Adobe Sensei, which means that sophisticated machine-learning technology helps Adobe Stock retrieve the most relevant results. 

An alternative to traditional keyword search, Visual Search allows users to drag and drop an image onto the search bar and see high-quality, royalty-free results that match the colour, tone, and composition of the uploaded sample.

Preview in PowerPoint

Users can use preview images in their layouts to test different looks, and then easily go back to the preview history and license the images when they’re ready. 

At any point in time, users can also type the file number listed on the previewed images into the search bar to retrieve the image details again.

License History

When a user logs into their Adobe Stock account, they can consolidate the history of everything they have licensed from the Adobe Stock website or through Creative Cloud apps.

Users can retrieve their account license history without leaving PowerPoint to reuse images that they’ve already licensed.

This is a great way to ensure that presentations maintain the same look and feel as the projects in a user’s Creative Cloud apps.

Zeke Koch, Adobe Stock director of product management says, “Most Adobe Stock customers use both Adobe Creative Cloud and Microsoft Office, and many have expressed a desire to access Adobe Stock directly in Microsoft PowerPoint.

“This integration allows designers and the business users they work with to seamlessly bring Adobe Stock assets into their presentations.”

“We’re looking forward to working with Microsoft to continually enhance the customer experience.”
