As with many Office applications, though, there’s a quicker way to flip your image. Go ahead and select the image. Click and hold the bullet in the top-right corner, then drag left.

The same can also be done for rotating images by selecting the arrow at the top of the image and moving your cursor to the desired position.

Create the perfect presentation by taking advantage of these PowerPoint features.
