PowerPoint lets you put all kinds of media, like images, inside of your presentation.
Microsoft PowerPoint is the most popular presentation software used from university classrooms to the corporate board room. Apple’s Keynote and Google Slides are worthy competitors, but few apps are as universal as PowerPoint.
You have to add text and bullet points to Google Slides to add your content. But if you’ve never worked with Google Slides before (or if it’s been a long time since you did), maybe you’re not quite sure what to do.
