PowerPoint can be used as a mini graphic arts program. In this video, staff author Jess Stratton demonstrates the eyedropper tool, which samples a single pixel of color from any PowerPoint presentation. She'll also demonstrate how PowerPoint can be used to create social media ads and exported as a JPG or PNG file.
- [Voiceover] With the tool called the Eyedropper,…you can custom match a color to anything…that you see on a slide.…In this quick video, I'm going to show you…how you can make a nice little ad…using a photo and choosing some colors to match.…The first thing I'll do is insert a photo,…however I'm not going to do it the traditional way…of choosing Insert Pictures, because I want the picture…to take up the entire slide.…So instead, I'll change to the Design tab…and I'll click Format Background.…I'm going to add the photo as a background image…of the slide itself.…
I'll choose Picture or texture fill on the right,…and instead of this texture, I'm going to choose…to insert the picture from a File.…From here, I can browse to find a photo.…I'm going to choose the same photo…that I used in an earlier video for removing the background,…I'll choose Insert, and here's my photo.…As you can see, it takes up the entire slide,…and I can't accidentally slide it all over the place.…This is why it's a good choice…to make it the background for the slide itself.…
