I insert a image in a new slide, but when I go to the next slide in the slideshow I get a grey box left. So clicking thru my slideshow, I get my image, then a grey box and then the next slide. This only happens with images.

A screen shot only requires the use of the "Print screen" button and then you can paste that into a image program and then save it and post it here.

But since you are getting this request for a HTTP address, means that you have pasted in a link to the file that came from the internet.

I've done the screen capture, but when I go to insert it into this message using the insert image icon (2 mountains and sun) it requests a url address.

The grey box is the same size as the image. so it goes, slide as required, <click> image disappears, grey box appears <click> next slide

Once the screenshot is made, did you open a imaging program such as Pain, Paint Shop Pro, or even Adobe Elements and paste the screen shot into a new image and then save this image to your drive with name and location that you can find it?
One you saved this to your hard drive, go to the "Go Advanced" button here in this thread and there you will see a method to upload this saved image and it will be include with your current reply.

I'll take your word for it. Think I can describe it as a white screen with a grey square the size of the original image.

I have NOT been able to reproduce what you are getting.
A screen shot and a step by step of how you did this insert may help us help you.

When I insert a new slide it is defaulting to "Title and Content". If I select "Title" the grey bit is no longer there.
I love the way Microsoft make simple things complex!!!

Thanks for your time.

It sounds like you're making the PP .. by inserting one slide at a time.
I've only made a couple .. But I arranged all my slides in a Folder .. Sized and prepared them for the Show ..
Then inserted all the slides in one step ... Have you tried it this way ???

It's a whole lot easier to mess with pictures in a folder .. That do it in PP
Simple things are not as complex .. When they're pictures in a folder.
