Crop To Shape allows you to easily cut out a section of the slide into a picture. It provides more flexibility than using PowerPoint’s built-in Crop To Shape feature. For example, using PowerPoint’s crop feature to crop a picture to the shape of a cloud gives you the result show below.
Using Crop Lab however, you are able to specify exactly which area of the picture to capture inside the cloud shape, as shown below.
Unlike PowerPoint’s built-in Crop feature, Crop Lab can crop to match a custom shape. Here’s an example:
To use the feature, first use the Freeform Shape tool to mark out the area you'd like to crop.
Select the shape, then click the
Crop To Shape button under Crop downdown menu.
PowerPoint's Shadow and Soft Edges effects can be used to enhance the look of the cropped image - for instance, here's the same image above after Soft Edges were applied.
Alternatively, you can draw multiple shapes to cover the area you want to crop out, use
ctrl-click to select all of them, and then click
Crop To Shape.
The result of the above crop, with the Shadow effect applied:

You can select any of the nine points to anchor the resulting cropped picture to, or follow the reference object’s anchor position.
