Using Picture Styles
Editing an Image
A menu like the one in Figure 3-19 opens. The menu’s selections depend on the
kind of adjustment you chose, but they all work the same way: You see a gallery of
thumbnail images illustrating changes to the image (pass the mouse pointer over
the thumbnails to see a live preview on the full-sized image). Click a thumbnail to
change the image in the document.
Figure 3-19:
You don’t have to
guess how changes
you make to
brightness will affect an
image; the thumbnails
in the Brightness and
Contrast menu show
you. When you pass
the mouse pointer
over a thumbnail,
Word tells you what
you’re adjusting and
shows a live preview
of the effect on the
full-sized image.
Using Picture Styles
Picture Styles add frames and other effects—shadows, soft edges, beveling, and
reflections, for example—to your images. To apply one of these effects, select the image
to open the Picture Tools | Format tab (Alt, JP). Quick Styles appear in the Picture
Styles section of that tab, showing you some previews of different styles. You can
use the up and down arrows to scroll through the styles, but to save yourself some
squinting and see all the options at once, look below the scroll down arrow and click
the More button (Alt, JP, K).
Take a look at the different styles available and use your mouse pointer to see a live
preview of any of them on your image. Click the one you want to give your image
some style!
Tip: Use the Picture Border (Alt, JP, SO) and Picture Effects (Alt, JP, F) buttons to create do-it-yourself
picture styles. These buttons give you more options than the quick styles, including border colors, glow
colors and widths, and various options for shadows, reflections, and rotation effects.
