How to Create a “Torn Page” Effect in PowerPoint

Have you ever wondered how to achieve the “torn page” effect to a shape or image within PowerPoint? Although this impressive graphic effect looks like it would be difficult to create, you probably already have the basic skills necessary to achieve this look! In this post, I’ll walk  you through the steps that I took in order to create the “torn page” show in this image.


1.  Crop the image.

2.  Select the Freeform shape tool.

3.  Draw a jagged edge on the image.

4.  Change the fill and outline color to white

5.  Apply an Outer, Top shadow effect to the jagged shape.

Voila! Success! Although there are many ways you can create custom shapes and image effect within PowerPoint 2010, this is one that I’ve always liked. It’s quick, it’s easy, but it has impact!  You don’t have to be a graphics pro or illustrator to accomplish this look. Give it a try!

I would love to hear about any other tricks that you have to share!
