Adding pictures to your PowerPoint presentation can make it more visually appealing. However, when you first showroom a new image, it covers up whatever else is on the slide, including text. Here’s how to move pictures and other objects backward and forward lớn create the layering you want.


Sending an Image Behind Text

If you haven’t already, go ahead and mở cửa the PowerPoint presentation you’ll be working with and hop over to lớn the slide with the text & image.

We’ll go over layering images in a bit, but right now we will just be working with a single image và some text.

*


As you can see in the image above, The Geek image is covering the “How-To Geek” text. Khổng lồ put the image behind the text, first, click the image to select it & then go to the “Format” tab.

*

Over at the “Arrange” section, click the “Send Backward” button. A drop-down menu will appear with two options.

*

“Send Backward” sends the image back one level. “Send khổng lồ Back” places the object behind all other objects on the slide. For now, select “Send Backward” (we’ll talk about layering image more in a bit).

Now, your image will be behind the text.

*

Alternatively, you could right-click the object, click the arrow next khổng lồ “Send to Back,” and then select “Send Backward.”

*


The “Bring Forward” and “Bring lớn Front” options you’ll see on the Format tab và the context menu work much the same way. You’d use these options to lớn move an object in front of another. So, in this example, we also could have selected the text & brought it forward to lớn accomplish the same effect.

Object Layering

Now let’s say we have three objects, and we want to layer them in a way that all of them serve their purpose. As an example, let’s give The Geek a name tag. We’ll be using three objects:

A picture of the How-To Geek logoA solid white rectangleA text box with đen text that reads “The Geek”

What we want is for the image lớn be in the back, the trắng rectangle to be in front of the image, & then the text khổng lồ be in front of the white rectangle. However, we created our text and white rectangle first và then inserted our image, so the image is now in front of everything else.

Note: Yes, we know that we could just type text into the white rectangle shape to lớn make things easier, but we’re doing it this way for an easy example of layering.


First, we want lớn select the picture logo & send it to the very back since we want all the other objects khổng lồ appear in front of it. Select the image, right-click it, và then select “Send lớn Back” (or use the button on the “Format” tab).

*

This sends the image The Geek to the very back layer, as you can see below.

*

However, as you can see in the above image, our text is hidden behind the white rectangle. Next, select the trắng box, right-click it, và this time select “Send Backward” from the “Send lớn Back” options.

*

Note that if you select “Send to Back,” your white rectangle will disappear behind The Geek.

Here’s what we have now.

*


Now, from back lớn front, we have the image, the white rectangle, & then the black text box in front. That’s the order we were after.

While the odds of you needing to give a name tag lớn a logo sản phẩm in a presentation are pretty slim, image layering is an important part of working with more complex slides.
