Great.
But the Set Transparent Colour on the Picture toolbar is greyed-out with
Freeform shapes - and when the shape and picture are pasted special also.

Thanks for pointing it out! For PowerPoint 2000 and below, you will can only
paste as jpg for the set transparent color to work.

Great that works.

Is there a way that one can easily make the two parts of a tear fit togther?
Let me explain better.
Imagine tearing a photo in half. Then showing the two torn halves with a
gap between them So the tear template needs to be mirrored/ made negative..

Yes, but slightly harder.
Here's a sample I have uploaded on experimental lab:
http://pptheaven.mvps.org/experimental.html

How it works:
Draw a "tear" line instead of a tear edge autoshape.
Make another copy of the image.
Select the line, right click on the ends of the line, click Add Point.
Now, move the end and you should be able to join up the autoshape.
Once you are done, right click and select Close Path.
Do this to the 2nd image.
Follow the original tutorial from here onwards and you should get the result.

3. PowerPoint 2007: Tear-off menus?

I've recently migrated from PowerPoint 2003 to 2007.

In 2003, one of the facilities I regularly used was tear-off menus.
For example, if I was making an interactive presentation, I would have
the action buttons menu sitting on the screen so that I didn't
constantly have to keep going back to one of the other menus to make a
selection. In a similar way, I also used the drawing tools and colour
palettes.

So, can I do this in 2007, or have the tear-off menus been ripped from
the program? If so, how?

7. Repeat a series of many effects (loop a subset of effects)

I've looked without success to try to loop a subset series of say, 8 effects 
(in the middle of say 20), such that these effects act continually once 
invoked.  

To place context around this, it shows about 6 subway cars travelling in a 
predifined pattern between 4 stations, and once I walk through it once, I 
want the pattern repeated ad infinitum as I continue the slide show.  How, 
please?
