Formatting pictures in PowerPoint, including using the PowerPoint Format Painter, can make it easier to personalize your presentation.
PowerPoint offers several options for changing the way images appear in your slide show. For example, you can add a frame, make image corrections, change the image's color or brightness, and even add some stylish artistic effects. These options are located in the Adjust and Picture Styles groups on the Format tab.
Image Adjustment Options
When you're ready to make adjustments or experiment with the look of an image, select the picture and choose one of these options from the Format tab:
- Corrections: This command is located in the Adjust group. From here, you can sharpen or soften the image to adjust how blurry or clear it appears. You can also adjust the brightness and contrast, which controls how light or dark the picture appears.
The Corrections command
- Color: This command is located in the Adjust group. From here, you can adjust the image's saturation (how vivid the colors are), tone (the temperature of the image, from cool to warm), and coloring (changing the overall color of the image).
The Color command
- Artistic Effects: This command is located in the Adjust group. From here, you can add artistic effects such as pastels, watercolors, and glowing edges.
