Pictures are one of the most used elements
in a PowerPoint presentation. It enriches the slide, visually conveys the information contained on the slide, emphasizes its importance and it could be exchanged for a long time. But..
To make the photo look better, we try to cut it to a circle, and here the problem arises, because often the photos are cropped in the wrong way and ellipses, eggs, flattening, slimming arise. You can immediately see that something is wrong on the slide. There is a way to do it and it is very easy to apply it so that the photos cut to the circle always look like a circle, without image distortion.

The view in the picture is not as framed as he wanted!
There may still be questions, what if we choose the 1: 1 aspect function and the view in the picture is not as framed as we would like?
Ok, then after choosing the 1: 1 ratio function, hold down the Shift key (all the time) and at the same time move the picture with the mouse to the right or left to select the appropriate frame.
It is important that the photo does not exceed the cropping area as in the photo beside, because our circle, which we will trim in the next step will have a flat, sharp edge.
