If you use Microsoft Office 2010, it is more things for you to do with pictures. You can enhance your picture by adding effects, such as shadows, glows, reflections, soft edges, bevels, and three-dimensional (3-D) rotations to it. Next, I will give guidance in details. I will take Microsoft Word 2010 for exmaple, and it is the same in other Microsoft Office applications.
- First, select the picture you will add or change an effect for.
- On the ribbon, click "Picture Tools" > "Format" tab, and go to "Picture Styles" group.
- Click the arrow beside "Picture Effects". Point to the first "Preset" option, and then click the effect that you want. To customize the preset effect, click "3-D Options" at the bottom.
- In the following "Format Picture", under "3-D Format" pane, change the options that you want. It contains "Bevel", "Depth", "Contour", "Surface", etc. Then click "Close".
- Point to "Shadow", and choose one type like "Outer", "Inner", "Perspective" in the menu. To customize the shadow, click "Shadow Options".
- Also in "Format Picture" dialog box, in "Shadow" pane, choose the options such as color, transparency, size, blur, angle and so on as you like. After that, click "Close".
- To apply or change a reflection, point to "Reflection", and then click the option that you want under "Reflection Variations". Click "Reflection Options" to customize it.
- Set the values under "Reflection" and then choose "Close" button.
- To apply "Glow", point to it and choose one type like this. To see and apply more colors, click "More Glow Colors". If you want to customize this effect, click "Glow Options".

I always insert pictures in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and so on. But I have never embedded pictures into Microsoft Excel. Now I need to insert one picture in my Excel workbook. Then I find that the style of picture is not suitable with the whole sheet. I want to change the effect. Could I do this in Microsoft Excel directly not in other special tools like Photo shop, etc?
I inserted a picture in my Microsoft Word 2010 document yesterday when I edit my report. However, today, I find that the background of the image is not necessary for my report and it is not pretty too. So I want to remove the background. Could I do that directly in Microsoft Word 2010? If so, how should I do? If not, could I use some other programs to solve this problem?
