PowerPoint can be used as a mini graphic arts program. In this video, author Jess Stratton demonstrates how to use the Background Removal tool to insert a picture, remove the background, and use the tool to fine-tune the areas to keep, and the remaining areas to be removed to end up with a polished, professional looking photo for your presentation.
- [Voiceover] Power Point can be used…like a small graphic arts program.…There's a lot of things that you can do with images…to include them in your presentation.…And in fact in a later video, I'll show you a way…that you can create stand-alone drawings…for social media such as Instagram…right from creating one slide in Power Point…and exporting it as an image file.…For now though, I wanna show you something really neat…that you can do with your images.…It's called removing the background from the image.…This is fantastic if you want to use…a stand-alone part of one larger picture in your slides.…
I'm going to start by inserting an image.…I'll change to the Insert ribbon tab,…chose Pictures and now I can choose something…that I want to insert.…I'll find my picture, click Insert…and it's going to drop it right into the slide.…I'd like to have just this chef on the slide itself,…in a way that's similar to this other slide down here,…where you can see all our executive team.…I'll show you how that's done…using the Background Removal tool.…
