Cropping a Picture
Cropping a Picture
Sometimes you want to cut off the edges of a picture so that you can include
just part of the picture in your presentation. For example, you might have a
picture of two people, only one of whom you like. You can use PowerPoint’s
cropping feature to cut off the other person. (Note that you can crop bitmap
images, but not vector pictures.)
To crop a picture, select the picture and click the Crop button located near
the right side of the Format tab on the Ribbon, in the group labeled Size. The
selection handles change to special crop marks. You can then drag the crop
marks around to cut off part of the picture. When you’re satisfied, press the
Esc key. Figure 11-7 shows the picture that was inserted in Figure 11-6 after it
has been cropped and resized.

If you decide later that you don’t like the cropping, you can right-click the
picture and choose Format Picture from the menu that appears. Then click
the Reset button.
When you crop a picture, the picture still retains a basic rectangular shape. If
you prefer to remove the background from an irregular shape in the picture,
refer to the section “Removing Picture Backgrounds,” later in this chapter.
