How do I crop an object(picture) following a certain shape ?

  I want to crop a figure from a picture and insert it in a slide so it won't have any of its own background anymore(for who knows kind of like using lasso tool in photoshop). I know that in powerpoint 2003 it had an option to do this easily, does 2007 has it also?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You might be thinking of the transparency wand, which makes one color transparent. If your picture background is made of more than one color, though, it won't be much help.

In PPT 2007, the transparency wand is on the Picture Tools tab that shows up when you select a picture. It's on the left under Recolor Picture.
