In PowerPoint, depending on the purpose of the presentation, you can add different kind of effects to increase the aesthetic, artistic, to attract the viewer’s attention. And for effects, standing or moving, there are also many. But today what effect will we focus, please keep on reading.
In this article, I will show you how to add shadow effect for object in PowerPoint for 2 kinds of object that are picture and text. It’s very simple, you just need to follow the instructions. Now let’s get started.
I. Add shadow effect for object in PowerPoint _ picture
NOTE: To apply this effect, the picture you choose must have a transparent background. You can use the background eraser tool or download a picture without a background online, so when applying shadow, the picture will reflect better.
Step 1: Go to Insert and select Picture to insert.
Step 2: Double-click at the picture to move to tab Format (or select picture and click Format). In the Picture Styles section, click on Picture Effects.
Step 3: You hover the mouse over Shadow. After that, a large menu of Shadow will appear, divided into 4 groups of effects:
No Shadow: No effect applied
Outer: Apply a shadow effect on the outer border of the object.
Inner: Apply a shadow effect on the inner border of the object.
Perspective: Shadow effect, move the cursor to that effect to preview.
II. Apply shadow effect for text
Step 1: Go to Insert, select Textbox to insert some texts.
Step 2: Go to tab Format, in WordArt Styles you will also find Text Effects. Select it then Shadow, choose one effect you want, then review the result.
Choose the image size, font color, font style you want and then use Shadow to make objects represented in a more unique way!
And that is applying shadow for both picture and text in PowerPoint.
For more options, In Shadow effect select Shadow Options. A Format Shape window will appear on the right with some editing options:
Presets: Reset the shadow style applied for the object.
Transparency: Adjust the level of the object’s shadow.
Size: Change the size of the shadow.
Blur: Adjust the blur level for the shadow.
Angle: Adjust the angle of the shadow.
Distance: Change the distance between the shadow and the object.
To remove the Shadow effect on an object, go to Format and select Shadow => No Shadow option.
So, I’ve finished introducing you to PowerPoint’s Shadow effect. If you like, you can use this effect in combination with pictures, shapes, or icons (refers to Office 2019 and Office 365) to illustrate what you want to convey in the most vivid and interesting way. These effects can also beautify and increase the professionalism for those slides of your presentation.
