About editing pictures

You can use Microsoft Office Picture Manager to make corrections to your pictures such as fixing brightness, color, or removing red eyes. To save time, select all the pictures you want to correct at one time, then use Auto Correct or one of the individual picture editing tools.

The editing tools available in Picture Manager include:

  • Brightness and contrast    Allows you to adjust the difference between light and dark tones. You can use this feature to correct pictures that appear too light or too dark.

  • Color    Allows you to adjust the hue and saturation. You can use this feature to correct pictures with colors that are tinted or dull.

  • Crop    Allows you to crop out unwanted parts of a picture. You can use this feature to correct pictures that contain distracting elements.

  • Rotate and Flip    Allows you to rotate pictures or flip them on the current axis of the picture. You can use this feature to correct pictures that you have taken sideways for a portrait orientation.

  • Red eye removal    Allows you to remove the red from your picture subjects' eyes caused by the camera's flash. You can use this feature to correct red eyes wherever they appear.

  • Resize    Allows you to change the dimensions of a picture. You can use this feature to enlarge a picture for printing or reduce it to send in e-mail messages or share on the Internet.

Note   You cannot use Picture Manager to make images transparent, add text to pictures, or scan images.
