A Simple, Quick Photo Editor
We’re often asked to recommend photo editing software. There are some fantastically powerful packages available with learning curves to match. Sometimes a few simple modifications are all that is required.
If you have Office 2003 or 2007 installed, then it’s very likely you have Office Picture Manger.
Here it is..
On my desktop I have a photo – let’s call it before. If I right click the relevant icon and select ‘open with’ then one choice is Microsoft Office Picture Manager
This opens the picture, ready to edit (click the picture to see fuller copy)
The picture is looking a bit washed out (Whernside in Summer rarely tends to offer a clear view of anything).
Looking on the top menu we can see the edit pictures button – along with auto correct and the (pretty essential undo button).
Auto-correct often does a reasonable job
Clcik the undo button then select edit picture for more options
The controls are now on the right hand side of the screen.
In this case some changes to the brightness, contrast and midtones gives a fairly resaonable improvement
There are many more options in the colour correction options. (being colour blind, I tend to concentrate on brightness and contrast!).
If you have Office Picture Manager – it is certainly worth a look.
