Cropping Images in PowerPoint

croppingCropping pictures in PowerPoint can be great tools for presentations and slides especially if you want to end up with an exact measurement or you want to fit  an image into a predefined space.. Here’s how you do them in PowerPoint 2007 and 2010. It’s pretty easy:

  1. Rich-click the image and choose Size and Position. The Size and Position dialog box opens.
  2. On the Size tab, use the Crop From boxes — Left, Right, Top, and Bottom — to crop off the amount you need. Use the Height and Width boxes at the top (in the Size and Rotate section of the dialog box) to figure out how much you need to crop off.
  3. To see the result, click the Close button. You’ll probably need to make a few adjustments to get the result that you want.
