- Position: You can select the location where you want to show the image on the slide.
- Re-colour: If the default color is not good enough for your presentation, you can make use of this option to apply a different effect.
- Adjustment: You can adjust the transparency, brightness, and contrast of the image.
- Drop-shadow: You can grab the attention of the viewer by adding the drop-shadow. In that case, you can add a drop-shadow to your image, change the transparency level of the drop-shadow, angle, and blue radius.
