While you can do conventional cropping within PowerPoint 2013, you can also opt to forego the typical rectangular constraints, and use another shape to crop instead. This tutorial explains the Crop to Shape option that lets you choose non-rectangular cropping shapes for your pictures -- the results tend to look like a picture has been contained within a shape.
After inserting a picture in your slide, you should first consider if the picture you have used complements the message of your presentation and slide. Even if it is relevant, you should consider making it more pertinent by removing the areas that may be not required -- in other words, you must ponder and decide whether you want to use PowerPoint's Crop options. Cropping an area removes extraneous areas, and lets you add focus to the areas of the picture that are appropriate to the topic of your presentation.
Do you want to remove a sky, a wall, any backdrop, or something else in a photograph so that the slide background shows through within the removed parts of the picture? The Remove Background option may be just what you need to remove the background from an inserted picture.
When you insert an audio clip on your slide, you can see a sound icon that represents the audio clip. Of course, it rarely matters what the icon looks like if you have set your audio clip to play automatically. However, if you actually plan to click on this picture to play your audio clip -- then you might want to use another picture instead.
When you insert an audio clip into a PowerPoint slide, you can control its volume, set it to play looped, or even hide the audio icon. These are some of the advanced options available for any inserted audio clip in PowerPoint. Remember that these advanced options only exist so that you can use them when they are required, rather than using them just because they exist! Let us explore all these advanced audio options in PowerPoint 2013.

Bing Image Search
While Google may have the largest and most up-to-date search index, other search providers like Microsoft's Bing need to up the ante by providing more usability options so that visitors can get more optimum and narrowed-down results.
