We have already covered most of the effects available in PowerPoint 2007 in this tutorial series -- and now I show you how you can add a Bevel effect to a selected shape in PowerPoint 2007 (or higher version).

To see a sample presentation containing Bevel effects in PowerPoint 2007, scroll down to the bottom of this page.

Follow these steps to apply a Bevel effect to a shape:

  1. Select the shape you want to apply the effect to. Selecting a shape activates the Drawing Tools Format tab in the Ribbon -- activate this tab and locate the Shape Effects button that you can see in Figure 1 (highlighted in red).

  2. This brings up the Shape Effects drop-down gallery, as you can see in Figure 2. From the Shape Effects drop-down gallery, choose the Bevel option.

  3. This opens the Bevel sub-gallery (refer to Figure 2) that provides the following options:

    1. No Bevel: Use this option to remove bevel from a selected shape. You can use this option only if the shape has bevel effect applied.

    2. Bevel: PowerPoint provides twelve bevel styles to choose from (you can preview these styles in the online presentation -- scroll down this page).

    3. 3-D Options: This option is explained in a detailed article on the 3-D Options page.
  4. Move the cursor over any of the effects within the Bevel gallery to see a live preview of the effect. Click on an effect to apply it to the selected shape.

  5. Remember to save your presentation often.
