PowerPoint Image Editing Features

When we say editing photos, would you believe me if I say that there’s a little hidden gem in our computers that can do a few (surprising) features that Photoshop also does?

Thanks to a recent session held by Microsoft experts at the Technology for Good 2016 (Philippines), I have learned that there is in fact a wide array of features hidden or unnoticed in PowerPoint that can give you basic image editing capabilities. From background removal, to color picking even up to creating composite images, let us go through some of these awesome features in PowerPoint!

Do you have little to no experience in using designing software? Don’t worry, we’re about to change that! To help you learn to create your own designs, I’ve listed here some of my own favorite design recipes that you can easily, and quickly, replicate for your own organization’s needs.

Let’s be honest. While Adobe makes great programs, they can be daunting to use – and when you’re strapped for time and resources, finding the help you need can be tricky. TechSoup Asia partner Connecting Up put the call out to their Facebook and Twitter communities to come up with a list of ten websites that can help you make the most of Adobe products for your not-for-profit.

Adobe Photoshop 2018 and Premier 2018 Bundle boxshot.png



Description: 

Photoshop Elements  2021 and Premiere Elements 2021 is a product that combines two Adobe applications. Photoshop Elements is a tool for editing, retouching, optimizing, and distributing digital images. Premiere Elements is a tool for editing and publishing digital video. Together, they count as one individual product toward an organization's annual Adobe donation limit.

This donation provides one license each for Photoshop Elements 2021 and Premiere Elements 2021. Each license allows one user to install and use the applications. You may install the two applications on different computers. The license key provided with this product request will expire on November 30, 2025. After that date, this product will no longer function. See below for additional licensing information.

 

Benefits for Organizations

You can use these applications without prior image or video editing experience to

  • Tell your organization's story by cleaning up recorded videos and publishing them online
  • Edit, clean up, and organize photos of volunteers and on-site events
  • Learn about image and video editing through the guided editing tools that take you step by step through the process

 

Major Capabilities

  • Many professional-level capabilities: The Elements applications are simpler alternatives to Photoshop and Premiere Pro that share many of the features of the larger products. Photoshop Elements does not include certain advanced Photoshop features such as the Channel Mixer, Color Balance, scripting, or CMYK coloring. Premiere Elements offers fewer templates, transitions, and effects than Premiere Pro.
  • Simplified organization: You can keep track of your photos and videos in a searchable organizer shared by both products that filters media by people, places, or events. Tagging media allows you to find photos or videos faster.
  • Image editing: Photoshop Elements can automatically detect and remove red-eye and other imperfections in a photograph. You can manually adjust colors, lighting, contrast, shadowing, and highlights and make one-step photo adjustments by choosing the best result from a group of several different adjustment previews. You can also create composite images using elements from multiple photographs or other digital graphics.
  • Video editing: You can edit, drag, drop, copy, and paste clips within the editing interface. Premiere Elements can analyze your video and fix shaky footage and color and lighting problems, trim away bad footage, and balance audio elements. You can add music, narration, text, and special effects.
  • Video importing options: You can import video from a variety of devices, including HDV camcorders, compact camcorders, web cameras, MPEG-4 video recorders, DSLR still cameras, and select mobile phones. Premiere Elements can record video from webcams, analog capture cards, and other live video sources.
  • Sharing options: Photoshop Elements optimizes photos for sharing via email, Facebook, YouTube, or online photo albums to ensure high-quality images with small file sizes. Premiere Elements can deploy video to a variety of media, including DVD and Blu-ray; sites like Facebook, YouTube, and Vimeo; and mobile devices.

 

Licensing

If you're the licensed user, you may also use each application on a secondary computer. The secondary computer may be a home computer or portable computer and must be of the same platform. You may not run the software simultaneously on both the primary and secondary computers.
