Lesson 3: Picture Formatting
Objective # 1 The Format Picture Command

The format picture command allows a person to customize the picture to their specifications. Look under the format menu and click on picture. There are many different options to choose from. As a result, there are numerous ways to customize your picture to your liking. Some of these options include contrast adjustment, brightness, cropping and fill or paint tools.
Objective # 2 How to Use Text Wrap
When you send the image from the clip art gallery to the Word document, a toolbar should appear on the screen. In the toolbar you should click on the dog shaped button. This will open up the Text Wrap Menu.
Objective # 3 Cropping
One of the most important feature in the picture menu is the cropping tool. This tool allows you eliminate unwanted parts of the image to make them fit into your documents. The cropping button is two black angles across each other. To use it all you do is simply click on the corner of the image and drag across until you have selected only that which you want. If you mess up, donít worry, just go to the Edit menu and select undo.
