Most Powerpoint users will incorporate images into their presentations, as a text-only slideshow can have difficulty holding the attention of the audience. But a picture that you have added to your slideshow may not convey the information, or achieve the effect, that you had initially hoped. So you will go back and delete that picture from the slideshow so that you can use a different one in its stead. But there is no button to click which will delete an image, so you may find it difficult to complete the action.
Our tutorial below will show you how to select and delete a picture from a slideshow in Powerpoint 2013 by using a button on your keyboard.
How to Remove a Picture from a Slide in Powerpoint 2013

- Open your presentation in Powerpoint 2013.
- Select the slide containing the picture that you want to delete.
- Click the picture to select it.
- Press the Delete key on your keyboard. If you are unable to find or use the Delete key, you can use the Backspace key as well.
