Isn’t the graphic beautiful?
You can use the graphic to showcase your images in PowerPoint by changing the black fill with a picture of your choice. Let us see how to create the graphic step by step.
Step 1: Create the basic frame
Draw two rectangles of different sizes using the ‘rectangle’ tool in auto shapes menu. Fill the larger rectangle with white color and the smaller one with black color. Change the outline color of the larger one to grey and remove the outline for the smaller rectangle. Place the smaller rectangle inside the larger one as shown here:

Step 3: Add a clip to hold the pictures together
The final step is to add a paper clip to hold the photos together. For this, draw the shape using ‘rounded rectangle’ tool from auto shapes menu. Move the yellow handle to the center to get full curvature on top. Remove the fill color and give a strong color to the shape outline:
To get the shape of the clip, add a small rectangle at the top left corner. Fill the rectangle with the color of the slide background (in our case – white) and remove outline:
When you place the pin on the top right corner of the stack of photos, the Polaroid picture frame graphic is complete:
