How to Quickly Add PowerPoint PPT Border Designs
Note: Watch this short tutorial screencast or follow the quick steps below, that compliment this video.
1. Select an Image Border Format Option
Let's get started with an image of place on the slide here in PowerPoint. I've got the image selected.
And here on the Picture Tools > Format menu on the ribbon, we can set an image border. My favorite way to set up borders style is to use one of these built-in picture styles, which are a variety of border styles you can apply to the frame of your image.
2. Apply the PowerPoint Image Border to Your Image
I'll click one to apply it to an image. You can see we've added a border design quickly.
3. Apply More Picture Border Design Options
Another option to really fine-tune the way our borders will appear is to come up to the Picture Border section, and select a color from the color chooser. And now I'll go down and choose a weight to pick the thickness of the border on that image.
And finally you could return to the menu and chose an entirely different type of border like dotted or dashed. These borders can add a bit of distinction and set an image apart on a PowerPoint presentation slide. And there's a ton of ways you can do them.
