PowerPoint lets you apply a picture shape to any pictures inserted on the slides in your PowerPoint presentation. If you choose a circle, PowerPoint crops the picture to a circle. To apply a PowerPoint shape to a picture, follow these steps:


Click the picture you want to apply the shape to.

Your picture is selected.


Click the Format tab on the Ribbon.

Format options display.


Open the Insert tab on the Ribbon and then click the Picture Shape button in the Picture Styles group.

This summons the Picture Shape gallery.


Click the shape to apply to the picture.


Drag the yellow adjustment handle.

Many shapes have handles that let you adjust one or more aspects of the shape. The location of this handle depends on the shape.
