- Repeat the process for the remaining images.
Creating Circular Thumbnails
- Head back to the first slide.
- Insert a rounded rectangle and set the radius to the maximum.
- Duplicate the rounded rectangle five times.
- Select all the rectangles and adjust transparency to 0%.
- Play with the Quick Styles options for a sleek look.
- Set the light bar to 100%, adjusting the direction as needed.
- Group the rounded rectangles.
- On the first slide, set the aspect ratio of the second group of images to 1:1 (square).
- Position the images on the left side and adjust their placement.
- Set the size of the thumbnails on the first slide to 5cm and arrange them.
- Repeat these operations for the remaining slides.
