Remove a picture style or outline

  1. Click the picture to select it.

  2. On the Picture Format tab, you have three options:

    • If the border is a style and you know which style it is, click Picture Effects > (the kind of style that’s applied) > No (style). For example, to remove a shadow, click Picture Effects > Shadow > No Shadow.

      On the Picture Format tab, Picture Effects is highlighted.

    • If the border is an outline, click the arrow next to Picture Border, and click No Outline.

    • If you aren’t sure what style is applied, you can reset the picture—but that will also remove any other changes you’ve made. To reset the picture, click Reset Picture.

      On the Picture Format tab, Reset Picture is highlighted.
