Insert Duplicate Color Picture on Top of Image with Background Removed

The next step is to stack a copy of the original color picture on top of the picture now showing only the focal point (in this example, the focal point is the large rose).

  1. Click on the Insert tab of the ribbon.
  2. Insert a copy of the original color picture on top of the picture with background removed. Refer to the previous instructions for inserting a picture, if you need to refresh your memory.

Note - It is very important to make sure the newly inserted picture is stacked exactly on top of the first picture and is identical in size.

Convert Picture to Grayscale

  1. Click on the picture on the slide to select it.
  2. You should see that the buttons on the ribbon have changed to the Picture Tools. If this is not the case, click on the Picture Tools button, above the Format tab on the ribbon, to activate it.
  3. In the Adjust section of the Picture Tools toolbar, click on the Color button.
  4. From the drop down menu that appears, click on the second option in the first row of the Recolor section. (The tooltip Grayscale should appear as you hover over the button if you are unsure.)
  5. The picture should now be converted to grayscale.
