Editing graphics and video (Advanced level)

Students have access to many very rich primary multimedia sources. They could make powerful use of these resources by presenting them in a visually attractive way and clipping video extracts to deliver short, yet focused and effective messages during a larger presentation. Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 gives students access to a number of graphic and video editing tools.

By the end of this task you could achieve the following outcomes:

Download an example - Remove a picture background
