Edit a Photo in Microsoft Picture Manager
Once you have a photo opened in Microsoft Picture Manager, you can begin editing it. You will notice that the Picture Manager toolbar is similar to other Microsoft Office applications, with the familiar File, Edit and View menus. To make changes to a picture, though, you will want to go to the Picture menu.
The first item in the Picture menu is Auto Correct, which will adjust brightness, sharpness and colors automatically. Click on Brightness and Contrast in the Picture menu and the Brightness and Contrast task pane will open. You can opt to click the Auto Brightness button and Microsoft Picture Manager will adjust the brightness automatically. Otherwise, use the Brightness and Contrast sliders to adjust them manually. Click on Color and the Color Enhancement pane will open. Again, you can choose to click the Enhance Color button to allow Microsoft Picture Manager to automatically make color adjustments, or use the Hue and Saturation sliders.
The next item in the Picture menu is Crop. When you click this, crop handles will appear on the picture. Drag these handles to contain the area you want to keep and then click OK to crop the picture. Alternatively, you can use the Aspect Ratio settings or the Crop Handles to set specific dimensions.
Click Rotate and Flip in the Picture menu and rotate or flip the picture from the task pane. You can rotate it left, right or by degree, or flip a picture horizontally or vertically. Select Red Eye Removal and use the red eye tool to click on eyes in the picture. Click OK in the task pane to remove red eye. Choose Resize from the Picture menu to change the size of the picture, or use the Compress Pictures tool to reduce file size.
When you are finished editing the photo in Microsoft Picture Manager, go to the File menu and save the changes.
