Without a doubt, PowerPoint is one of the most comprehensive solutions developed by Microsoft since thanks to its different characteristics and functions we can create slides in a professional, dynamic and complete way. By playing with the opacity of images in PowerPoint, we can create presentations with images that are joined or overlapped and thus create different visual effects..
The images in PowerPoint are an essential part of each slide since they visually represent the theme that we want to show the user.
