Reposition Picture Fills with Crop
While making a visually strong PowerPoint presentation you can add shapes and pictures to it. You can also fill your shapes with pictures - maybe sometimes you end up with not so desirable results. Primarily, you'll find that PowerPoint insists on filling the entire picture within the shape - in the process, the picture itself may appear distorted. Fortunately, regaining this lost proportion is an easy option, as you will learn in this tutorial.
Picture Borders
The Picture Border option in PowerPoint adds a simple outline or even a beautiful frame to your pictures. Once you insert a picture on your slide, you may want to apply various adjust picture options. Additionally, you can also apply the preset Picture Styles available. In this tutorial we'll explore how to add Borders to the inserted pictures in PowerPoint 2013.
Picture Effects
After inserting pictures within your PowerPoint slide, you may want to change the appearance of the picture. Picture Styles are based on PowerPoint's Picture Effects capabilities and add some effects with a click. Most of the time, this means that a single Picture Style adds a reflection, a glow, and a border to your picture. However, you can also apply any of these effects individually to your pictures. In all, PowerPoint provides 6 effects: shadow, reflection, glow, soft edges, bevel, and 3-D rotation.
Resize, Rotate, and Flip Pictures
PowerPoint provides various picture enhancement options such as: Picture Adjustments, Picture Styles, Picture Effects, and Picture Borders. Beyond these options, there are some very significant yet basic picture editing options that you should consider -- these include learning how you can Resize, Rotate, and Flip pictures. All of these options help you to enhance the look of your inserted pictures.
Align and Distribute Pictures
Whichever slide objects you place on your PowerPoint slide, their position and alignment matters a lot -- be it shapes or even the many inserted pictures. In some cases, a haphazard arrangement of pictures may work -- but most of the time you will have to align objects in a proper way on your slide. Even before you align pictures, you should explore whether all pictures are the same size or not.

Business Presentations Survey 2014

Business Presentations Survey

We rarely do surveys - in fact the last one we did was the Business Presentations Survey 10 years ago! And you will agree that 10 years is a long, long time - so that's the reason why we wanted to do this survey again.

Yes we wanted to ask you the same questions that we asked a decade ago, and this will help us all (that's all of us) in determining what's changed in a decade!

So, follow the link, fill out the survey and we will give you an opportunity to grab yourself an amazing gift!
