sometimes you might have to ungroup it several times (images can be grouped in different ways on top of one another).  i don’t think you can change the color in powerpoint unless it was created using powerpoint shapes or autoshape images. if so, you can right click on the individual pieces and going to "format autoshape" and under the "colors and lines" tab, you can change the fill color.  However, if it won’t let you do that, that means that you’ll need another software like paint or photoshop to do it…

hope that helps!

Can’t ungroup clipart- you can ungroup things in a certain format that it can ungroup it into.

 Paint is a pretty straightforward program- try that.  There’s a tool that will fill an area with your chosen color.  Not the most flexible tool, but it might do the job.

 Or if it’s not too hard, I’d be willing to give you a hand.  Email me at peihan [at] hotmail [dot] com

Sometimes when you try to ungroup clipart you get an error message asking you if you want to convert the object.  Then you click ‘yes’ and after it is converted you can ungroup it into tiny parts that can be deleted or recolored.  

If that object cannot be converted your best bet is to find another one (my usual choice) or to copy it into Paint, zoom, and recolor it pixel by pixel.

Paint is free (at least on PCs, not sure what Macs have).

 Go to Start>Programs>Accessories>Paint.

 Good luck!

Another option is to go to "format picture" in PPT, and you’ll see a  button near the bottom that says "Recolor."  All of the colors of the image will be laid out for you, and you can preview the change of each one as you go along.

Hope this helps!
