Insert and Edit Images in Office
In Office 2013 and 2010, you have more options to work with images directly in the programs. Once you use the [Insert] tab to place the image, most of the options are in the [Picture Tools] tab. The Picture tab is dynamic and only appears when you have selected an image.
- Click to select the picture you want to edit.
- A [Picture Tools] tab will display > Click the [Format] tab.
- Locate the "Adjust" group > Choose "Artistic Effects."
- Scroll over all 20+ options and view a “live preview” of your selection.
- Open the screen of which you want a screenshot.
- Do not minimize the page, and open your Word document again.
