in a Presentation
Remove Background. If you insert a picture to replace the audio icon (see the
Tip on page 629), you can remove its background to show only the main image.
Select Picture Tools | Format Remove Background (Alt, JN, E) and see page
102 for step-by-step instructions.
Corrections. Adjust brightness and contrast or sharpen/soften your image by
clicking this button (Alt, JN, R).
Artistic Effects. Get artsy with your image by clicking the Audio Tools | Format
tab’s Artistic Effects button (Alt, JN, X) and choosing the texture or visual effect
you want.

formatting you’ve applied to the current image, click this button (Alt, JN, G) to

the appearance of
the audio icon (or
whatever image you
use to replace it).
Its options are the
same as those on the
Picture Tools | Format
tab (page 101).
Tip: Because you’re formatting an image when you use the Audio Tools | Format options, its ribbon
options are the same as those on the Picture Tools | Format tab. Page 100 tells you all about formatting
pictures in Word—and it works the same way in PowerPoint.
Editing Media Clips
PowerPoint 2010 has some cool new tools that let you work with videos and audio
clips right inside PowerPoint. Fade in and out like a professional director. Bookmark
certain points in the playback, and use the bookmarks to jump to those points. You
can also trim a video by changing its starting and ending points so you can show
what’s relevant and leave out the rest.
Note: You can’t trim, add bookmarks, or add fade effects to a video that you got from the Web and
embedded in your presentation.
