PowerPoint has a built-in feature that allows you to remove the background from an image. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open PowerPoint:
    • Launch Microsoft PowerPoint and open the presentation containing the image you want to edit, or start a new presentation.
  2. Insert the Image:
    • Click on the “Insert” tab in the Ribbon.
  3. Click on “Pictures”:
    • In the “Images” group, click on “Pictures” to insert the image into your slide.
  4. Select the Image:
    • Click on the image you inserted to select it.
  5. Go to the “Format” Tab:
    • A new tab, “Format,” will appear in the Ribbon. Click on this tab.
  6. Click on “Remove Background”:
    • In the “Adjust” group, click on “Remove Background.” PowerPoint will attempt to automatically remove the background.
  7. Adjust the Selection:
    • PowerPoint will highlight the areas it thinks are the background in pink, and it will keep the subject in the foreground. If there are areas you want to include or exclude, use the resizing handles and markers to adjust the selection.
  8. Preview and Refine:
    • PowerPoint provides a live preview of your changes. Make sure to refine the selection until you are satisfied with the result.
  9. Keep Changes:
    • Once you are satisfied with the background removal, click “Keep Changes” in the Ribbon to apply the changes.
  10. Adjust Image as Needed:
    • Resize or reposition the image as necessary. You can also use other formatting options in the “Format” tab.
  11. Save Your Presentation:
    • Save your presentation to retain the changes.

Keep in mind that the “Remove Background” feature in PowerPoint may not work perfectly in all cases, especially if the image has complex details. In such instances, you might need to use more advanced image editing software for precise background removal. Additionally, transparent backgrounds may not be supported in all image formats; ensure that the file format you choose supports transparency if needed.
