Apply a New Effect
Occasionally, you may want to give an object a special effect to make the object vivid or dramatic.
You can use shape effects to add dimension and realism to the object’s appearance. For example,
you can apply a reflection effect that gives the appearance of the object reflecting in a lake. You can
also give an object a soft, blurred border, or give it a shadow or glow. When you select an object,
the contextual Format tab that appears on the ribbon provides you with many tools to apply effects
and formatting to the object.
