Editing an Image

The image’s background disappears like magic, as you can see on the right back
in Figure 3-16.
Background removal works best with clearly defined main images that contrast
strongly with their backgrounds, but you can use the Background Removal tab’s
tools to fine-tune which parts of the image stay and which parts go.
Tip: You can tweak an image after you’ve removed its background. Click the image to select it and then
choose Picture Tools | Format➝Remove Background (Alt, JP, E). The image changes to background
removal mode, looking something like the image in Figure 3-17. From there, you can make whatever
adjustments you want; click Keep Changes to apply them.
Moving and Rotating Images
Inserting an image into your document is just the beginning. Once you’ve got a
picture in there, you can move it to a new position or adjust its angle.
Moving an image
The easiest way is to use the Clipboard: Cut the image from its current location
(Ctrl+X), move the cursor to the new location, and paste the image there (Ctrl+V).
You can also drag the image to its new home: Click the picture to select it and move
your pointer over the image until it becomes a selection arrow combined with a
four-way arrow. Click and drag the image to its new position; let go of the mouse
button to drop it where you want it.
Tip: To position an image that’s on its own line (in other words, when there’s no text wrapped around
it), head for the Home tab (Alt, H) and, in the Paragraph section, use the Alignment buttons to line up the
image with the left or right margin or to center it.
Rotating an image
When you insert an image, it appears in either vertical (portrait) or horizontal (land-
scape) orientation. To tilt the image at a rakish angle or to turn it upside down, use
the rotation handle. Click the image to show the sizing handles. Above the image is
a green circle; that’s the rotation handle. When you click it, the pointer becomes four
arrows pointing in a circle, as shown in Figure 3-18. Drag the rotation handle in a
circular direction, and a ghost of the image moves with you. When the ghost image
is at the angle you want, let go of the mouse button to rotate the image to that angle.
