Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 is presentation software that helps you create professional looking, dynamic slides for your work or school needs. Individual slides can hold text, graphs or pictures. You can add links to any object on the slide, including pictures, so that you can easily bring up a relevant website during your presentation. For example, you may want to connect to the YouTube website during a talk on college student's learning habits. On the click of a mouse, PowerPoint will open a browser window with your chosen website.
Things You'll Need

Right click on the picture you would like to add a link to.
Click on "Edit Hyperlink."
Paste the link you would like to add in the "Address" box. For example, if you want to link to YouTube, write http://www.youtube.com in the box.
Click the "OK" button.
Tips & Warnings
- To test the link, click on "Slide Show->From Beginning" and click on your picture.
- PowerPoint links have been known to break easily; if you are linking to a video, picture or static web page (one that you can save to your hard drive as an html file), you should consider embedding the file instead of linking to it.
