Word 2007: Editing Images

So, you know how to get an image into your Word document and you even know how to create cool effects on AutoShapes. Now, we’re going to continue to build on that knowledge by working with the Adjust and Picture Styles groups, both located on the Picture Tools Contextual Tab. And, 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.
