Edit and Save Photos with PowerPoint

I have Photoshop and PowerPoint and both programs can do some really amazing things. Hands down Photoshop is king when it comes to photo editing. However, not everyone has Photoshop so this post will share how you take advantage of PowerPoint’s photo editing tools. Add your photo to a slide by clicking on the Insert tab then Picture. Alternatively, drag a picture onto the slide.

With the photo selected, a Picture Tools–Format tab will appear. If you don’t see this tab then left click the photo. You can remove parts of the background you don’t want. Read my blog entry on how to do this. There is an adjust group where you can easily adjust the color, contrast and brightness and add filters called artistic effects. There are a ton of styles that will alter your image to a new look and feel. Crop and rotate also are helpful tools.

After you finish with the edits, right-click and select “Save as Picture.” Available formats include .jpg, .png, .gif, and .tiff.
