  • You can adjust how the image is formatted within the shape using two actions: Fill or Fit.
    • Click the image within the shape and go to the Picture Format tab that appears.
    • Click the arrow below Crop in the Size section of the ribbon and choose either Fill or Fit.
    • When you “Fill” a shape with an image, this adjusts the picture size to match the shape’s height or width, whichever is greatest. 
    • When you “Fit” a shape with an image, this adjusts the picture size so that both the height and width match the shape.
That's it!
