We have already covered most of the effects available in PowerPoint 2007 for Windows in this tutorial series. Now, we 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:
- 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).

- This opens the Bevel sub-gallery (refer to Figure 2) that provides the following options:
- Use this option to remove any bevel effect from a selected shape. You can use this option only if the shape has a Bevel Effect applied.
- PowerPoint provides twelve Bevel Styles to choose from. You can preview these styles in the online presentation at the bottom of this page.
- This option is explained in a detailed article on the 3-D Options page.
- 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.
