Add A Polaroid-Style Frame To PowerPoint Presentations

Images in PowerPoint presentations look much more effective if you give them the "Polaroid effect". PowerPoint expert Bruce Gabrielle walks through how to do that in the video above.

    Rather than having to change the shadow colour when you change the slide bg colour, surely you could set the shadow colour to black and change the opacity to something like 50%, couldn't you? Seems like that would be a more elegant solution.


      Okay then.
