This site won't let me attach a file this size (it's only 25,000KB). I have deleted ALL slides except one slide, and I've made all 6 pictures very small on this one slide.

It still won't accept the upload. So that is why I cannot upload my presentation. Apparently there is a bug here, because my file size is small.

Here is my screenshare describing my problem:

On slide 6, I want 6 images to appear with Pinwheel animation, one after the other...

Image 1 appears on the blank slide, THEN image 2 appears on top of image 1 (covering image one, so that now only image 2 is visible). THEN image 3 appears on top of image 2.

Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong here?

In the Custom Animation task pane, it lists only Image 2, Image 4, and Image 5. Why aren't Image 1, Image 3, and Image 6 listed?

Thank you.

You had better uploaded your file instead of showing your proceeding as a video clip. So every helper could manipulate your slides and see what's going wrong.

Thank you, Grantler. I had tried uploading my file a dozen times. It keeps saying the file is too large. I even deleted all slides except the problem slide--same problem.

You could use any file sharing service, like, GDrive, DropBox, etc. Then you could post a link to the file here.

Oh, of course! Why didn't I think of that?

This does not really answer your question, but, since it looks like you want to overlay each picture with a transition to a new picture why not just make individual slides - one picture per slide - and apply the desired transition to the slide.

I guess I figured it out, because it's working now.

I believe the problem was I was not clicking Add Effect after dragging each image in.
