Format Object 1 2 3 4 Figure 8-34. Adjusting settings for a picture object removes 1" from the left side of the picture. Enter a negative number to add white- space to the outside of the picture. 2. Color . The Automatic setting presents a picture in its original color format. Choose Grayscale to convert the picture to use 256 shades of gray. This setting is what you'd typically think of as a black-and-white picture. Choose Black and White to convert the color to pure black and white -- useful for line art. Choose Watermark to convert the picture to use preset brightness and contrast settings that work well for water- marks. 3. Brightness . Brightness is the amount of black or white in a picture. Slide the dial or enter an exact percentage. Higher values add more white, making the picture brighter. Lower values darken the picture. 4. Contrast . Contrast is the saturation or intensity of color in a picture. Higher values make the color more intense. Lower values make the color more gray. The Text Box Tab This tab provides controls for setting the internal margin of a text box, or the distance from each edge to the text inside the box. Other options are provided for specifying a callout leader (if the text box is to be used as a callout linked to a figure) and for converting the text box to a frame. Text boxes exist only on Word's front or back drawing layers. Frames exist in the main text layer. For more information on Word's layers, see Chapter 2. Format Chapter 8:Format | 243
