Office 2007 introduced a new graphics engine that lets you add special effects to text and graphics. These effects have been expanded and enhanced in Office 2010.
To add special effects to text:
- Select the text you want to change.
- Click the Text Effects button in the Font group on the Home tab of the ribbon.
- Click the effect you want, or select additional effects from the menus at the bottom (Outline, Shadow, Reflection and Glow).
Word 2010 includes a number of new ways to modify graphics in a document. All of these options are in the Adjust group on the Picture Tools/Format tab of the Ribbon.
The options in this group are summarized below:
|Remove Background||Remove unwanted areas of the picture.|
|Corrections||Improve the brightness, contrast, or sharpness of the picture.|
|Color||Change the color of the picture to improve quality or match document content.|
|Artistic Effects||Add artistic effects to the picture to make it look more like a sketch or a painting.|
|Compress Pictures||Compress pictures in the document to reduce its file size.|
|Change Picture||Change to a different picture (retains original size and formatting).|
|Reset Picture||Discard all the formatting changes made to the selected picture.|
