Suppose you have a picture of many people, and you just want to talk about one of them, how can emphasis a section of a picture just using PowerPoint?
Microsoft PowerPoint gives us many useful functions. We have told about how to blur the background of a picture, how to create your own shapes, how to create invisible buttons, etc. Now with this useful trick, you can make your picture in PowerPoint even fancier.
How to emphasis a section of a picture
(We make this tutorial in PowerPoint 2010. The location of the buttons may be a little different for the interface of different PowerPoint versions varies.)
Open you PowerPoint, and click “Insert” → “Picture” to add one picture to the slide. Let’s mark this picture as picture 1.
Make a copy of the picture, let’s say picture 2. Now you will see the picture 1 is under picture 2. Re-color the bottom picture (picture 1) as “Grayscale”.
Carefully move picture 2 back to cover picture 1. While it is selected, click “Format” → “Crop”.
Move the frame to cover the section you want to keep.
Add a “Quick Style” to the cropped section.
Now you should see your picture like below.
