How to Set Picture Shape
The new graphics engine in Office 2007 brings to fore a whole slew of new effects which makes the presentation richer. Reflection, soft shadows, 3D effects, glows and more. We shall see how to assign a picture shape in this example.
You just inserted a picture on the slide. By default the shape type has always been a rectangle. In PPT 2007, you can assign a different shape to the picture. In a sense this behaves similar to drawing the desire shape and then applying a picture fill but the properties are different.
Note that trying the same in earlier versions will give you 'Permission denied' error.
