Make your pictures look great......

You most likely add #pictures to your documents in #Microsoft_Word or your #Presentations in #PowerPoint - but do you format them with the tools provided to enhance the photos?

When you select a picture the Picture Tools, Format Tab appears - this gives you many options to #format you pictures in different ways.

Make your #pictures shine by using the formatting commands that can give your photos that extra edge...


Once you have selected the picture and accessed the Format Tab, you can change the color, apply #artistic_effects, add transparency, add picture frames or styles, add borders, apply effects like #shadows, #glows, #reflections, #soft_edges, #bevels or #3D_Rotations. You can also crop your #pictures_to_shapes or different #aspect_ratios, then apply other effects. The results you can achieve are varied and limited only to your imagination and the office tools provided.
