In Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook we can use the automatic background removal or we can even draw lines to indicate which areas of the Picture Background we want to keep or which areas we want to keep. By using the Background Removal, we accent or highlight the subject of the picture or to remove the distracting detail. Background Removal is not available for Vector Graphic Files. In order to learn how the Background Removal command works just continue reading.

A new feature has arrived in PowerPoint 365. The name is Quick Starter (sort of like Quick Silver). What does it do though?
It builds an Outline in PowerPoint, to help us get started researching a subject of our choice. All we must do, is to enter a Topic, and voila, after a couple of steps an Outline is created according to the information that we have entered and according to our choices.
All you need to do, to use the Quick Starter feature in PowerPoint is to follow the steps below. Believe me, you must continue reading because it is an amazing and useful feature. Once we have PowerPoint running, from Backstage View, and where all the Templates are located we select the Quick Starter one as shown in the image below.
Alternative text is text associated with an image that serves the same purpose and conveys the same essential information as the image. In situations where the image is not available to the reader, perhaps because they have turned off images in their web browser or are using a screen reader due to a visual impairment, the alternative text ensures that no information or functionality is lost. Absent or unhelpful alternative text can be a source of frustration for visually impaired users of the Web.
Thankfully in PowerPoint 365, it automatically generates Alt Text for photographs by using intelligent services in the cloud. PowerPoint 365 doesn’t generate Alt Text for Drawn Images, such as Clip Art, Diagrams or Icons.
If we have used the Pen or Highlighter to draw on our PowerPoint Slide, we have also used the Eraser feature that is available. Now, a new eraser has appeared in PowerPoint 365. The name is Segment Eraser at what it does, is that it allows us for precise control when we are tidying up and Ink Drawing. It erases Ink back to where it intersects with another line.

In PowerPoint we can easily create a Self-Running Presentation in order to communicate our information without the need of a presenter. We can set up the Presentation in order to run unattended in a kiosk, a booth or a convention. We can also make the appropriated adjustments, so that our audience cannot make changes to our Self-Running Presentation. Once we create a Self-Running Presentation, it automatically restarts after it is finished.
In order to create a Self-Running Presentation also known as Kiosk Presentation, all you need to do is to follow the steps below.
First we must create our Presentation, or open it in order to set it up as a Kiosk Presentation and then we must select the Slide Show tab and then from the area of the ribbon named Set Up we select the command Set Up Slide Show as shown in the image below.
