Apply Glow Effects to Shapes

Apply Glow Effects to Shapes

As part of our series on PowerPoint effects for shapes, we will explore the Glow effect. This effect adds a hazed color perimeter outside the shape area. This effect is an Outer Glow surrounding the shape, and not an Inner Glow effect. You can choose from various glow colors such as Theme colors or even any other color of your choice to match the look of the slide content.

A Glow effect adds a hazed color perimeter outside the shape area, and by default, the Glow colors emanate from the active Theme. These default Glow colors work most of the time, but of course, you can change the Glow color to something entirely different. In this tutorial, you'll learn how you can change this Glow color to any color you want.

Applying a Glow effect adds a nice halo around a selected shape or most other slide objects. You may find that the Glow effect defaults just do not work for you all the time, especially since the default glow options are limited only to Theme Colors. So if you want to make some changes, you have to step outside these defaults and change the glow color, alter the spread or transparency, etc.


Apply Soft Edges to Shapes

Apply Soft Edges to Shapes

Among the various Shape Effects available in PowerPoint, probably the most subtle one is the Soft Edges effect. This effect adds an eaten-up, feathered edge to a selected shape. Soft Edges work best with larger shapes, especially if you use some of the larger Soft Edge variations available. PowerPoint provides some ready-to-use Soft Edge presets.

The Soft Edges effect adds an eaten-up, feathered edge to a selected shape. PowerPoint does provide you with some ready-to-use pre-set Soft Edges, but you may want to edit the applied Soft Edges effect to be less or more pronounced. Whatever your reasons for customization, you can certainly edit the properties for the Soft Edges effect in PowerPoint 2016. For instance, you can change the soft edge size parameter.
