Video: How to Add a Picture Inside Text Using PowerPoint and WordArt

I use PowerPoint for most of my graphics, including the ones I use for videos, event flyers, postcards, my Linkedin profile header, and more. If you can see it, you can create it in PowerPoint. (A link to samples is below the video.)

In this example, it’s easy to add design elements to words using PowerPoint and WordArt.

 

Here’s a real quick video to show you how I did this. I’m using PowerPoint 2013, and this has worked the same in other versions.

P.S. In another video, I show you how to save your WordArt graphic as a picture while on the slide, crop it, then save outside of PowerPoint so you can use it anywhere. Click here to watch that video after you’ve learned from this one.

For more ideas on using PowerPoint for design projects, check out this slideshow video.

Video: Save Artwork As a Picture and Crop It in PowerPoint

In a separate video, you’ll learn how to insert a picture inside text using WordArt. In the video below, you’ll learn how to save WordArt as a picture while you’re on the slide, and then how to crop then save the image outside of the slide (so you’ll be able to use the picture anywhere).

Whether you create a graphic as WordArt or not, this is a technique you’ll use often when you use PowerPoint beyond slides (I use it for all kinds of graphics from flyers to video thumbnails).

Video: Shortcut for Switching Your Sound Source (Audio Output) from the Windows 10 Taskbar

For sound, I have the option of using a headset, earphone, desktop speakers, and a dual monitor with sound. I switch back and forth depending on what I’m doing. In older versions of Windows, I’d right-click the sound icon on the taskbar, go to sound options, and make the desired device the default.

I stumbled on this shortcut recently, and use it every day.

 

Here’s a real quick video to show you how to quickly change your audio output in Windows 10.

(Video) Use PowerPoint to Remove Background from Pictures and Merge with Other

When I can’t find that perfect image, I’ll knock out the background of one and merge it with the other.

I was looking for a picture of a woman in bed with her laptop and couldn’t find what I wanted. I found a woman sitting outside with her laptop, and I found an empty bed. Here’s how I knocked out the background of one and combined the two pictures.

Google Voice: (Video) How to Find Legacy Version on Desktop (Old Version, Previous Version)

If you can’t get used to the latest experience in Google Voice, you can go back to the legacy version.

In a previous (and popular video), I showed how to block anonymous  (UNKNOWN) callers on Google Voice. When the site was updated, I didn’t see a way to do this in Settings. The video below shows you how to get back to the legacy version of Google Voice on your desktop.

At this writing, the new version eventually comes back so you’ll have to do a repeat.
