button and choose Picture Corrections Options on the drop-down list.
Recoloring a picture
Recolor a picture to give it a makeover. Figure 3-6 shows examples of Recolor
options. As well as recoloring a picture, you can change its color saturation
and color tone settings. Color saturation refers to the purity and intensity
of the colors; color tone determines the degree of lightness and darkness.
Recoloring is useful for giving a picture a uniform appearance. Select your
picture and use these techniques to recolor it:
✦ On the (Picture Tools) Format tab, click the Color button and choose a
Color Saturation, Color Tone, or Recolor option on the drop-down list.
You can choose More Variations at the bottom of the list and choose a
color on the sublist.
✦ Open the Format Picture task pane and change the Color Saturation
and Color Tone settings. Change the Saturation setting to mute or bring
out the colors; change the Temperature setting to make the color tones
darker or lighter. To open the Format Picture task pane, click the Color
button and choose Picture Color Options.
