Is there a way to soften the edges (smudge, blur, etc.) objects in
PowerPoint? For example, I drew an oval using the oval tool, filled it with a
picture, and now would like to soften the edges so it would not look so harsh
in my presentation. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks!

Try this:

Select it
Press Ctrl+C to copy
Choose Edit, Paste Special and choose a bitmap format, PNG for example

PowerPoint normally softens bitmaps so that should do ya.

If you want less softening, try enlarging the button or whatever before you copy
it. Or shrink it for more.
