In this video, staff author Jess Stratton illustrates how to make text, a photo, and a shape transparent in PowerPoint.
- [Narrator] My name is Jess Stratton…and welcome to PowerPoint Tips Weekly.…This week, I am going to talk about some neat…transparency settings you can use in PowerPoint.…In a future episode, Nick Bozzy is going to talk about…removing the background from images…which is fantastic when you have a busy background.…But there's a very quick tool you can use…when you only need to remove one color.…Let's take a look at this slide.…This slide can be improved tremendously…by removing the excess white background…and relocating the image.…
You don't need a separate graphic arts program.…PowerPoint has a tool just for this.…I'm going to select the image,…change to the format tab which appears…once I select the image.…From here, I'll select Color.…I can click Set Transparent Color.…This allows me to choose one color from this photo…and make all occurrences of that photo transparent.…This is great because we have this white background…that can go.…
I'll give it one click…and instantly, the photo looks a lot better.…Now I can drag it to the corner.…
