Editing Pictures, Adding Graphs, music etc. in Powerpoint

  • I want to show two images on a single PP slide to start and then as I am speaking I would like the images to change every 5 seconds, but remain on the same slide. Does anyone know who to do picture transitions on a single slide? Thanks!
