You already know that when you are creating slides for a presentation, you can add images to those slides. (A picture is worth a thousand words, after all.) What you may not know is that you can add some embellishments to the image once it is in the slide.
One embellishment you can add is a border. Presentation provides tools that allow you to add thin or thick borders using a variety of line styles. All you need to do is select the image you want to border and then click the Format menu. The bordering options are shown near the bottom of the menu. (See Figure 1.)

Note that there are three bordering options available:
Both the Line Weight and Line Dash options are also available from the toolbar. Just to their left on the toolbar is another bordering option, Line Color. This tool is not available on the Format menu; it allows you to select from among many different colors for your image's border.
