Office-Wide Feature: Image Editing
Editing of inserted and pasted images is no longer just a Word/PowerPoint feature. Image editing is now available throughout Office. Rather than take your photos into another program to change the cropping, contrast, brightness, sharpness, tint, or color saturation, you can make these and other adjustments in any open Office documentincluding Outlook email messages. When you select a photo on a document page, a Picture Tools contextual tab appears. Click its Format tab to use the image-editing tools (see Figure 2).
Figure 2 The Picture Tools > Format tab.
Many of the tools, such as Brightness and Contrast, provide drop-down galleries with live previews from which you can select the adjustment that looks best (see Figure 3). If you prefer the traditional, more exacting "drag the sliders" approach to editing, you can make adjustments in the Format Picture dialog box.
