We don't normally provide PowerPoint tutorials, but learning how to create an oval photograph from a rectangular photograph is important to know when using the design elements like the oval version in the de011 design element series.
of all, you want to keep this in mind: only a horizontally oriented
photograph can be used to produce a horizontally oriented oval. If the orientations are mixed, the photographs will skew and become unusable.
- Identify the photo(s) you wish to convert to ovals and click insert - picture - New Photo Album from the menu (see below).
- Click on File/Disk button and navigate to the photo you wish to make oval. Double click on the photo or select insert.
- In the Album Layout section: choose 4 pictures for picture layout and oval for frame shape and click create at the bottom of the screen.
The picture will show up in a newly created PowerPoint document, from which you can copy the newly "ovalized" photograph into your presentation and size it to fit with the oval design element. Easy.
