Using Shape Fills to Remove Backgrounds

Using Shape Fills to Remove Backgrounds

Using PowerPoint 2007's shape fills, you can draw custom shapes around objects to use as masks. Well, PowerPoint doesn't have a masking feature, but the effect is basically the same as masking since you're using a shape to reveal specific areas of an image. Great effect and just one more way to remove backgrounds from images using PowerPoint

Masking Effects in PowerPoint

This screencast was inspired by an image of a man's arm coming out of a computer. I saw the effect on Tom's blog and knew it was possible with Photoshop - masking, clipping paths, selections - but not sure how it would work in PowerPoint. So that was my challenge! I think it turned out pretty well...don't you?
