How to manage multiple versions of PowerPoint on the same machine?

Any manipulations you make to inserted pictures in PowerPoint are strictly only on the surface. The appearance of the picture changes on the slide, but the unaltered picture is still there within your PowerPoint file. Essentially that's good because if you make many changes to a picture and then regret, you can just reset your picture rather than deleting and inserting it again! There are few points to be considered before using the Reset option in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac:

  • The Reset option works only if you have not run any compression options for pictures within your presentation.
  • The Reset option won't cancel any rotation or flip applied to the picture.
  • And also, if you have resized the picture, you cannot get its original width and height back by resetting.

To reset a picture in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac, follow these steps:

  1. Open your presentation, and navigate to the required slide where you have already inserted a picture. If your picture is not already customized, go ahead and apply some changes. The picture that you see within Figure 1, below has been recolored and has an artistic filter applied. Additionally, a Picture Style has been applied.
  2. Customized picture selected

  3. Make sure you select the picture so that you see the contextual Format Picture tab in the Ribbon, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1, above.
  4. Note: The Format Picture tab is a Contextual tab. Contextual tabs are special tabs in the Ribbon that are not visible all the time. They make an appearance only when you are working with a particular slide object which can be edited using the options within these tabs.
  5. Within the Format Picture tab, click the Reset button (highlighted in blue with Figure 1, above).
  6. This will undo the changes such as corrections, recoloring, etc. applied to the picture, as shown in Figure 2.
  7. Reset option applied to the Picture
