This PowerPoint tutorial explains how to highlight any specific aspect of an image in PowerPoint.
A presentation with pictures and infographics is better than a boring looking textual presentation. Images make your message clear and create a lasting impression on the audience’s mind. But the use of relevant images is very important. Sometimes the key detail in the image may not be noticeable to the audience or many times, we want the audience to focus on a particular portion of the picture rather than the entire picture. An easy way to do that is to blur or darken all of the picture except for the part you want to draw attention to.
This article will explain to you how to highlight any specific aspect of the picture in your presentation slide.
Here’s the process –
Step 1 – Select an image
Insert > Pictures
Step 2 – Insert Shape
Insert > Shapes
Choose the shape of your choice
Step 3 – Draw the shape around the portion you want to highlight.
Step 4 – Fragment and Merge the Image and the Shape–
Select the entire image in the slide and follow the below steps –
Shape Format > Merge shape > Fragment
The image and the selected portion is now fragmented.
Step 5 – Blur the rest of the image.
Picture Format> Artistic Effects
You can also add colour to the blur effect.
Add more text and other shapes as per your requirement.
