So what are effects? Effects are different than fills and outlines — with the plethora of effects available in PowerPoint, you can make a shape stand apart with a drop shadow. Other effects allow you to create convincing reflections, spreading glows, 3D bevel effects, and even moth-eaten soft edges. Even better, all these effects are not destructible and can be turned on and off at your will.
