Crop the Image

lf you look at the sample image for Slide 4 you probably noticed that there is a date time stamp. You can Crop the picture to remove part of the image. Look in the Picture Tools for the Crop button. It is part of the Size group.


1. Try it: Crop the Image

Go to Slide 4 and select the picture.

Go to Picture Tools->Format-> Size.

Click on Crop.


2. What Do You See? When you click on Crop the picture will have a new frame. Crop Marks are available in each corner and on all of the sides. You can drag the bottom Crop Mark up until the date/time stamp is no longer visible.


Click on Crop again and the edits will be saved.


Good Question: Is the image cut permanently? No. Say you saved this presentation and opened it later. When you click on the cropped image, you will see the bottom portion that is in grey is still available...unless you Compress all Pictures and tell PowerPoint to delete the cropped area.
