Let’s say you are writing an article about generating savings and you want to illustrate it with an ICON . After a search on the web you find a black icon that could do the job, but you would rather have it in green with a little bit more styling.

All you need to do is import the file in your PowerPoint presentation and transform it as you wish. PowerPoint lets you transform the file as a Microsoft object and it becomes a shape like the usual shapes you can draw from the Shapes menu (rectangles, ovals, etc).
