What is Background Removal?
PowerPoint has a lot of built-in features that can help you edit images just like any other professional photo editing tool does. Background removal is one such feature.

• Helps in making the slide less busy.
• Removes distracting backgrounds so the important parts are shown up.
• An alternative to complicated and expensive graphic designing tools.
• Saves time and money

Steps to remove background from an image
