When I need photos for my presentations, I will either take my own or grab something free from the Microsoft images Website. I prefer photos, and when I can’t find exactly what I need, I’ll alter. I recently needed someone in bed working on a laptop.
I found a picture of just a bed and another of a woman sitting outside on the grass. I removed her background (easy in PowerPoint 2010), and put the woman on the bed. Perfect.
Here’s a quick video to show you how I did this. You can contact me anytime for software training.
If you have any other ideas, please leave a comment to let us know how you would have handled or how you’ve used a similar technique.
Note: Here is Microsoft® says about using their images, videos, etc.
