graphics in powerpoint

  heronsbridgeA8 11:01 30 Apr 2006

I use powerpoint as part of my job as a special needs teacher. When I use graphics designed specifically for special needs (mayer & johnson, remus etc) they come up fine onto powerpoint. However, if I edit them eg change colours etc, then copy them onto powerpoint they come up with a white box around them which then looks crap. How do i get rid of the dreaded white box?
Many thanks

What file type are the images, jpeg, bmp etc. and what software are you editing them with ?

I copy them into Paint, file type is WMF. They can be copied straight into powerpoint, but not hrough Paint without the white rectangle.

As I've not been able to replicate the white box, all I can suggest is try another graphics program like click here Photofiltre or click here Irfanview. As there's so little to adjust in paint I'm not sure what else could be done. Maybe somebody will have encountered this at some point and can offer something more constructive.

Don't now if this will help.

Click on picture go to format/object/colors and lines go down to line click on color and make sure you have selected no line.
