How to set my picture in Microsoft word?


Both Microsoft Word Processor 2007 and 2010 have surprisingly advanced on photo editing. It includes multiple tools to change a picture’s color settings. Rather than decreasing or increasing the picture’s saturation or opacity or make it transparent. You can do it using the "Washout" setting on the toolbar. Once you open the tab that contains picture editing tools.

Washing out a picture makes it look very pale by keeping its original colors but transforming them to much lighter shades. So that the entire picture or image looks closer to white than it does full color. You can do this function by clicking on the picture once. Then click the "Format" tab on the toolbar. Select the "Color" button on the Ribbon, and in the "Adjust" section on the left end of the Ribbon. A drop down will appear. Then select the "Washout" option on the drop-down menu, under the heading "Recolor”.
