I have an image I've copied into a PowerPoint presentation "content box" or whatever that is. However the aspect ratio between the image and box is not the same, so I selected the option to let PowerPoint automatically resize the image to fit the size of the box.
Now I want to copy-paste this image to a blank slide and rescale it with my mouse to arrange it with other images. However, the content box is pasted along with it and contains a lot of extra space around the image. How can I get rid of this? I would like to get back the original image with bounds that you get when you paste an image directly onto a blank slide.
I no longer have access to the original image I copied, so starting over is not possible.
Edit: Here it says to "To get an image or text out of a placeholder after it has already been converted, copy and paste it to a new section of the PowerPoint presentation." But it just copies the image with the placeholder.
Edit 2: Here it says that there is a reset picture option but this does not change anything once I've Resized picture to fit inside placeholder.
