Image editing tools in Microsoft Office 2010

There are many new features provided in Microsoft Office 2010, one of them is a selection of advanced image editing tools.

If you select a picture in an Office document such as Word or PowerPoint, the Picture Tools tab will light up and the context sensitive picture format menu will appear.

The Background removal tool removes the background from the photo.

No Background
The Corrections button will allow you to adjust the relative lightness of a picture (brightness), the difference between the darkest and lightest areas of a picture (contrast), and the blurriness of the picture. These are also referred to as colour corrections.  You can bring out detail in over or under-exposed pictures by brightening the picture or change the definition of the borders between light and dark by increasing or decreasing contrast.

The Color button will allow you to adjust the colour intensity (saturation) and colour tone (temperature) of a picture, re-colour it, or change the transparency of one of its colours. You can apply multiple colour effects to your picture.

The Artistic effects button allows you to apply artistic effects to a picture or a picture fill to make the picture look more like a sketch, drawing, or painting. A picture fill is a shape or other object with a picture applied to "fill it".  You can apply only one artistic effect at a time to a picture, so applying a different artistic effect will remove the previously applied artistic effect.

Previously tools such as these were only available with sophisticated bitmap editing products such as Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro.

I do appreciate that there are more sophisticated tools for background removal but I thought this was a welcome addition to Microsoft Office
