No I didn’t create these effects using some Adobe or Corel product.. The latest beta of Word 2007 comes with a nice Picture Style Toolbar from which you can choose a host of formatting styles for the images.
Microsoft Office 2007 also introduces a feature called “Live Preview“, which temporarily applies formatting on the focused text or object, when any formatting button is “mouse-over”. The temporary formatting is removed when the mouse pointer is moved from the button. This allows users to have a preview of how the option would affect the appearance of the object, without actually applying it.
The formatting can be further customized using “Picture Effects”.
