Resizing Clip Art and Photographs
Sometimes it is necessary to change the size of clip art. Resizing includes enlarging or
reducing the size of a clip art graphic. You can resize clip art using a variety of techniques.
One method involves changing the size of a clip by specifying exact dimensions in a dialog
box. Another method involves dragging one of the graphic’s sizing handles to the desired
location. A selected graphic appears surrounded by a selection rectangle , which has small
squares and circles, called sizing handles or move handles, at each corner and middle
To Resize Clip Art
On Slides 1, 2, and 4, much space appears around the clips, so you can increase their sizes. Likewise, the
photograph on Slide 3 can be enlarged to i ll more of the space below the slide title. To change the size, drag
the corner sizing handles to view how the clip will look on the slide. Using these corner handles maintains the
graphic’s original proportions. Dragging the square sizing handles alters the proportions so that the graphic’s
height and width become larger or smaller. The following steps increase the size of the Slide 1 clip using a
