Hi everyone,

 

I've got a question for you. I want to create a picture with round corners en specifically set the corner 'roundness' (Is that a word? It is now!) I tend just to use one of the preset picture styles and remove the effects I don't need but was thinking there has to be a better way?

 

I described what I do now in this screencast:

You can also use the Crop tool:

 

 

  1. Select your picture
  2. Click Crop > Crop to shape
  3. Select one of the shapes

 

Learned that from Shyam

Hi Jeff, double click on the picture and choose picture shape, in the middle of the picture tools tab, next to the picture styles

Thank you guys! PowerPoint just has to may hidden features  

 

Phil, I cannot seem to find Picture Shape. It just not there. All I have is picture border, effects and layout (which turns it into smart art)

Dave your suggestion I can find and works excellent.

 

Jeanette also replied via Twitter and she made a quick screencast on how to easily fill a shape with the picture enabling the shape features like transparency and such. :http://www.screenr.com/9Lx7
