In this video, you will learn another cool layering trick in PowerPoint.
The effect consists of a picture that pops up our of the background for a stunning visual effect. This requires the background of the object to be cleared i.e. you need an isolated image

The effect consists of 2 components

1. A rectangle without outline and a grey gradient with text on it.
2. An isolated image

We show you how to isolate the image in this tutorial. The regular set transparent color option in PowerPoint does not result in a high quality isolated image. Parts of the white background remains and parts within the picture get affected adversely too.

This video is third in the first. See the first and second videos in layering effect series here.

Here is an screenshot of layering effect that you will can create from this video:
