In PowerPoint, shapes and pictures are important parts of a slide — both of them are mainly used to add visual elements to your presentations. However, there are some problem areas when you use a picture as a fill for a shape. Primarily, you’ll find that PowerPoint insists on filling the entire picture to a shape — in the process, the picture itself may appear distorted. Figure 1 depicts an example — on the left is the actual picture we used to fill the shape on the right — note that the man’s face is squeezed and squashed when used as a picture fill. This completely destroys the look we wanted to attain. Fortunately, regaining the proportion is an easy option, as you will learn in this tutorial.

Learn how to reposition the picture fill in a shape, using the Crop to Fill option in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.
