    Make cartoon character totally black

    Hi Sir, need some help.
    I am making quiz where people have to guess the cartoon character so I want to make my cartoon character totally black. So I search the web to recolour the picture but find that with powerpoint vba its not possible. Is there any other solution to make picture complete black. For better understanding I share the ppt.

    Use a graphics editor (I did it with Paint3D) to create a blackened image. Use PP VBA to set visibility of images on slide.

    Thanks sir for your answer.
    But I want to do in PowerPoint only. My idea is: Import same image two times(place on top each other) then make totally black upper layer image(so people will guess) then after 5 seconds upper layer disappear so it will reveal actual image (as a answer).

    Use Picture correction and set brightness to zero.
    Cheers

    Your attachment shows one image as full color and then another as black interior so the figure is an outline. If you could manipulate color, then would not need the image twice, just manipulate color for one image. Again, I don't think PP VBA can do this. Create blackout images with Paint3D then use them in PP.

    Okay, I concede can get an almost totally blacked out image by setting brightness property. I had to set brightness to -100. It's fortunate that there must not be any color in the area surrounding the figure.

    If it's for a quiz, though not VBA, another way of guessing a cartoon character (etc) would be to click the image and at the top a new tab appears called Picture Format. On that ribbon you'll see to the left Artistic Effects. Maybe there's VBA code to select one of these?
