Updated April 17, 2017

Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 can format images on a slide. The "Format" tab on the command Ribbon can convert the image from a rectangular format to a skewed look that seems to pop off the slide. For example, the 3-D rotation command includes a "Perspective" style with an exaggerated tilt.
