In Microsoft PowerPoint (2016), you can add a soft (fading) edge to pictures via the
Picture Effects menu. This adds a circular perimeter around rectangular/square pictures with a fading edge.
There's a set of
Soft Edge Options... to play around with to change the size of the soft edge. However, there doesn't seem to be a way to modify the "shape" of the soft edge around such a rectangular image.
I understand that the picture effect tool is not applying a circle per se and is simply reacting to the edges available. However, I'm wondering if there is some way to modify the soft edge approach so that I can acheive more of a
rounded rectangle type of soft edge effect.
- In other words, make the soft edges less crcular and instead apply a faded look to just the corners...
(Just a quick MS paint job for reference)
