Change Image into AutoShape

All too often, an image is inserted into a document file. There might be occasions when an AutoShape image is the best viewing option. Available autoshapes include lines, basic geometric shapes, arrows, equation shapes, flowchart shape, stars, banners, and callouts.

This tutorial applies to Word and PowerPoint.

Click over the image: Word/PPT displays handles around the outside of the shape

In the Picture Styles group, you can select from a variety of framed pictures; or, click the Picture Shape and select one of the AutosSapes that makes your picture stand out ... try several different options to maximize the look of the image.

Click the Picture Border for preformatted options and colors.
Try some Picture Effects ... for more options click the arrow in the Picture Styles group
