Adjusting Illustrations
With the illustration selected, the tools on the
Adjust group allow you to alter the image in
the following ways.

dialog box, which allows you to choose
a replacement for the existing picture.
The new picture will be inserted into the
same size and shape as the existing picture.

this option can sharpen or soften the

Applying Picture Styles
The Picture Styles group has tools to change
the shape of the picture, add a border, add the
picture to a SmartArt graphic (see that section
later in this chapter), and apply special effects
to the shape and outline of the picture.
Artistic Effects: Applies an effect that
transforms the image to appear as if it
were created in some other medium.
Some of these effects are chalk sketch
(see Figure 12-8), pencil sketch, blur, light
box, and several more.
To apply these styles, select the picture, choose
Picture Tools Format > Picture Styles from the
Ribbon, and select the gallery from any button
in this group. Although styles can only be
applied one at a time, it is possible to select
all of these style choices for a single picture.
Compress Pictures: Reduces the file size
of the image. Reducing the file size may
reduce the quality of the image.
