What is the .IIW File Extension?

.IIW File Extension Description:

The IIW file extension is associated with an Add-In of Microsoft PowerPoint, the Image Importer Wizard (IIW) that provides support for importing a variety of image formats into PowerPoint. It is primarily designed to make importing a whole bunch of images easy and make inserting multiple images into a presentation a pleasure.

IIW has a simple wizard-like interface that guides you through the step-by-step process of importing images. It gives you control over the type, scaling, positioning, and insertion point of the imported images and can set the order in which the images are imported. It allows you to customize the captions and transfer the custom animations assigned to image placeholder shapes to the imported images. These preferences can be saved as named settings and can be stored in a file that has the file extension IIW.

Files with the .iiw file extension can be created in six simple steps:

* The first step allows you to load a previously saved setting, open an existing presentation from the list or select whether a new presentation will be created by inserting the images into a blank design, by applying a design template to the presentation, or using the slide template from another presentation. This step is also where you can set the insertion positions of the images (beginning/end, before/after), and set the number of images per slide.

* The second step allows you to choose whether not to resize the inserted image or resize it to a scaling factor relative to the slide, set it as a background, or map it to layout template shapes. Additional options for inserting the images are included in this step such as saving them with a presentation, positioning them precisely in the center or specify coordinates, setting the z-order of the images if imported into an existing presentation, or checking the grayscale box if importing in grayscale.

* The third step allows you to specify the search criteria, whether in a given folder or in a list of folders.

* The fourth step is where you are allowed to select the image file formats of the imported images or use wildcards to search for files that have specific names.

* The fifth step allows you to select from the list the images you wish to import and set the order in which the images will be imported.

* The final step allows you to insert the caption properties, where to place the caption, and set the font properties.

Files with the .iiw file extension can also be used while using IIW as a Defined Layout, a presentation that contains only one slide but provided with different shapes of formatting and attributes that you want. Any autoshape displayed on this slide represents an image placeholder, inserting as many image placeholders as you like on the slide.
