PowerPoint 2007: Formatting Objects

PowerPoint 2007: Formatting Objects

You know quite a bit about formatting your objects, now. We’re just going to add in a few additional topics, here.

First, we’ll talk about the Adjust and Picture Styles groups, both located on the Picture Tools Contextual Tab. Then, we’ll throw in some Text Wrapping options from the Arrange group.

Adjusting Images

You may remember from an earlier section that the Adjust group is where you set your image brightness and contract. And, this is also where you can reset your image back to normal.
