The Picture Effects button in the Picture Styles group (located on the Format
tab) lets you apply several interesting types of effects to your pictures. When
you click this button, a menu with the following effect options is displayed:
✓ Shadow: Applies a shadow to the picture. You can select one of several
predefined shadow effects or call up a dialog box that lets you customize
✓ Reflection: Creates a reflected image of the picture beneath the original
✓ Glow: Adds a glowing effect around the edges of the picture.
✓ Soft Edges: Softens the edges of the picture.
✓ Bevel: Creates a 3-D beveled look.
✓ 3-D Rotation: Rotates the picture in a way that creates a three-dimensional
The best way to figure out how to use these effects is to experiment with
them to see how they work.
