Copy it first to Paint, fill in the background to match your Powerpoint presentation, and copy to your presentation.

Right click the picture and go to format picture then go to colours and lines and then select no fill.

Thanks for your help!

Colours and Lines are already selected to No Fill.

When copying into Paint and filling the background, as some of the images are words, some of the previous background remains, especially with rounded letters like O and E. Can you get rid of this?

You can change the transparency of the image, which may work if it is opaque right now.

If the image is a set image such as a jpeg or bitmap, then you won't be able to change the background colour.

Using paint to change the background colour will naturally do a pretty hasty and messy job of it. Do you have any graphics editing programs? Paint Shop Pro works well, and you can grab a trial of it too.

Anyhow, once you have something like that you can change the background image manually with ease by using a soft paint brush at around 50% opacity.

But if you're only willing to stick with Paint, there isn't much you can do except break out the 1 pixel paint brush and start micro-painting around the edges
