When you design in PowerPoint, you may want to insert images inside of shapes. In other words, you can put an image into almost any shape.
Basically, you are just changing the fill option of a shape. For example, you can fill a shape with a solid color, gradient, pattern, or a picture.
It has been like that for a long time, but now you can do it easier with your own images. In addition, you can adjust them within the shape.
And, you can do it with almost any shape. Including, custom shapes that you create on your own.
