PowerPoint has a remove background feature. For this complex image, it is not going to work (well). So we are opening the image in Photoshop and using the amazing Generative Fill tool.

The only thing needed is to click the SELECT SUBJET button.

The accuracy is literally amazing to me on the selection made!

With the subject selected, click the LAYER MASK icon to remove the background.

Isolated image!

TIP: do not export this image as the .png for the slide, it has lots of unneeded pixels. Go to IMAGE > TRIM

With these settings, click OK and the canvas is cropped to the visible pixels (Trim is a feature that has been in Photoshop for a long time, and it is amazing!)

Export this image as .png that is now ready to use on a slide.
