Let’s say you’re using an image in a PowerPoint presentation that you’d like to assign a description, caption, or artist credit. You’d also like to make sure that text follows the image should you move it later. By using PowerPoint’s grouping feature, you can easily anchor images to text.
When you use PowerPoint’s grouping feature, you’re essentially taking several individual objects, whether they be images, SmartArt, text, and so on, and turning them into one single object. This allows you to move, format, or resize all those objects as if they were one. It’s also useful if you plan to use this content in future presentations, as you can save the grouped object as a single image for future use.
