Set a Transparent Background
Did You Know?
Why is the Set Transparent Color command dimmed? Setting a color
as transparent works only with bitmaps. If you are working with an ob-
ject that is not a bitmap, you will not be able to use this feature.
You can’t modify some pictures in Office. If the picture is a bitmap
(.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, or .PNG), you need to edit its colors in an image
editing program, such as Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Paint, or Paint
You can reset a picture back to its original state. Click the picture you
want to reset, click the Format tab under Picture Tools, and then click
the Reset Picture button.
