For some reasons can be informative to create several shapes with one background picture and move some of them apart. Moving shapes is easy, but how to keep the background image flowing through them all?
1

If the repositioned shapes are simple, then you can adjust the background image by changing the offset values. For more complex designs, see How to create a Jigsaw puzzle with the falling-out piece or How to add the effect of falling-out pieces of a Jigsaw puzzle.

To create an effect of tearing a picture into several pieces, do the following:

    1.    On the Insert tab, in the Illustrations group, click the Shapes button:

2016a shapes

    2.    In the Shapes drop-down list, select and add to the PowerPoint slide any shapes that should contain a picture.

For example:

2

    3.    Position shapes, for this example:

3

    4.    Select and group all shapes except the moved one. To group selected shapes, do one of the following:

  • On the Home tab, in the Drawing group, select the Arrange drop-down list, and then click the Group command:
    2016a home group
  • Under Drawing Tools, on the Format tab, in the Arrange group, click the Group command:
    2016a tools group
  • Right-click one of the objects and choose Group -> Group from the popup menu:
    2016a popup group

PowerPoint puts a single box around all shapes instead of separate boxes around each one.

    5.    Right-click on the group and choose Format Shape... in the popup menu:

2016a format shape

    6.    On the Format Shape pane, on the Shape Options tab, in the Fill & Line group, in the Fill section:

  • Choose Picture or texture fill,
  • Click the File... button and then choose the picture you prefer:
2016a fill picture

PowerPoint shows a picture inside the grouped shapes:

4

    7.    Add the same picture to the distinguished shape (repeat steps 5-6 for this shape).

    8.    On the Format Shape pane, on the Shape Options tab, in the Fill & Line group, in the Fill section, select the appropriate values in the Offset fields.

For example:

  • For the grouped shapes:
    5
  • For the repositioned shape:
    6

Make any other adjustments you desire.

It is now popular to create PowerPoint slides with diagrams or charts drawn using the chalk or marker effect. If you create slides with this effect, it will be great to create an agenda or other slides in the same style. For some PowerPoint slides, you can add a background image with a chalk or marker effect:

Magnifier is an excellent way to attract attention to the part of the picture, which does not require much effort. Two simple effects blur and glow allow you to shift the accent from the whole picture to the fragment in question.
