Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Apply Bevel Effects to Shapes

By default, the PowerPoint shapes that you insert on your slide are flat and two-dimensional. And this indeed works well most of the time. Yet, there are opportunities and situations that may benefit from a three dimensional graphic. It is times like these that you can apply plethora of Shape Effects that PowerPoint provides, or just use the Bevel shape effect that makes it stand apart by making your shape look embossed, like a button, or even a pillow — the different output variations occur since there are many Bevel presets available in PowerPoint 2013. Play with all the presets, and some Bevel presets will make your shapes will look as if they can pop out of the slide. Do note though that 3D does not always have to be loud and opulent — there are plenty of Bevel effect presets that are more restrained and understated!

Learn how to apply Bevel effects to selected shapes in PowerPoint 2013.
