Default Photos in PowerPoint?

I need some advice about photo resolution in PowerPoint presentations.

I've got PowerPoint 2003 on my computer, but have never used it. I've been told that it's easy to use, etc. so I'm starting the dreaded "learning curve."

One thing I'm wondering about is resolution requirements for PowerPoint photos. Can I use images that have been captured off the screen with "save as" clicks? Will these images work OK in PowerPoint presentations using a projector for a large audience?

Or do I need to download larger images with higher resolution that perhaps are 2 or 3 megs in size?

Most of my experience with photo resolution has been with print publications--the higher the resolution, the better the photo for cropping purposes, etc.

I'm in new territory with PowerPoint, however. I'd appreciate any suggestions.


P.S. I'm glad to be posting in the forum again. I was active when it was part of the old CompuServe system. Since then, I've become semi-retired--basically just working part-time from my home office to take care of a few long-time customers. I still need good advice, though!
