Resize a Picture Manually
Open a presentation in PowerPoint.
Select the picture you want to resize. You can also
resize shapes, text boxes, and WordArt.
Position your mouse cursor over one of the handles
surrounding the picture, as shown in Figure 9-11.
Drag the handle toward or away from the center to
resize the picture smaller or larger. Remember to hold
the Shift key down while you drag to keep the picture’s
original proportions. To keep the center of the object in
the same place, press the Ctrl key while you drag.
