Reset Pictures in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

January 3, 2017

Reset Pictures in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Once a picture is inserted within PowerPoint, any manipulations you make to that picture are strictly only on the surface. The appearance of the picture changes on the slide, but the unaltered picture is stored within your PowerPoint presentation. This is an awesome feature because if you make many changes to a picture and then regret experimenting, you can just reset your picture rather than starting all over again! There's one caveat, though. The option to reset any picture back to its original form works only if you have not run any compression options for pictures within your presentation.

Change Picture in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Imagine you inserted a picture in PowerPoint 2016, and then applied various picture editing options to enhance its appearance. For example, you may have added a border, applied some Picture Effects, etc. Probably, you then added both Fade and Zoom animations, synced them to happen together, and also timed the animations to occur at a particular speed. You may find yourself often doing these same tasks: adding all sorts of picture edits and animating them. And then you realize that you have a better picture, or your boss asked you to change the existing picture to another one, but with all the same effects and animations!

Set Document Resolution in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

One of PowerPoint's greatest qualities is that you can get all sorts of content from disparate sources and add them all within one presentation to create a unified document. Pictures are one of the most important content types you add on your slides. However, each picture you insert may have different resolutions, and thus even though you may have sized your picture to look like a small postage stamp on your slide, it may be increasing your file size by several megabytes.

Compress Pictures in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Yes, undoubtedly a presentation with relevant pictures is more effective than plain text slides. However, even if pictures enhance appearances, they can also phenomenally increase the size of your presentation file. Picture compression can help. Recent versions of PowerPoint do some automatic picture compression, even if you are not aware. There are options to make any such compression even more effective.

Artistic Effects for Pictures in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

PowerPoint is a slide program but that doesn't mean that it does not have some cool picture editing tricks up its sleeve. When we say "cool", we certainly do not mean just inserting a picture, or even the fact that you can apply corrections or recolor hues. PowerPoint 2016 provides around 23 filters as part of its Artistic Effects options. Some of these filters (effects) can make your pictures look like paintings or sketches, and others can change the texture of your pictures.

Comparing and Merging Presentations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

If you are working on a presentation with your clients or even a co-worker, then you might end up in a situation where you both did not work on the same copy, one after the other. Instead, you worked on two different copies. These copies may contain changes done by you both, some similar and some different. Now you need to compare and merge these copies into a single, cohesive file without losing anything at all!

Reset Slide in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Sometimes we come across slides that can be hazardous to our vision because such slides have nothing understated about them. Such loud slides can ensure that audiences get distracted. You might end up with such slides even with no fault of yours because someone else prepared them for you!

Fortunately, there is an easy, one-click process to restore some sanity in such slides. It's called the Reset option.

Changing Color of Pictures in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

One of the coolest options for editing pictures in PowerPoint is to change the hue of your entire picture so that it looks almost like a duotone picture. Similar to how you apply corrections to your inserted pictures, this Color option can also help you do more with your pictures. Be aware though that this Color option does not work like a coloring book; rather it changes the overall hue color of the entire picture, saturates color values, changes the overall color tone, and does more.

Picture Corrections in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

A picture needs to be "corrected" when its appearance is too dark or too bright.

Additionally, you may also want to make some tonal changes to a picture so that it stands apart. In this tutorial, you will learn how to make corrections to inserted pictures regarding their brightness, sharpness, softness, and contrast values; all from within PowerPoint 2016 without having to use an external program.
