Up to speed with Word 2007

The Picture Tools tab on the Ribbon

When you select a picture, the additional Picture Tools tab appears, showing groups of commands for working with pictures.

In this new version of Word, certain tabs appear only when you need them. For example, let's say you've inserted a picture. But now you want to do more with it. Maybe you want to change how text wraps around it or you want to crop it. Where are those commands found?

Callout 1 Select the picture.
Callout 2 The Picture Tools tab appears. Click that tab.
Callout 3 Additional groups and commands appear for working with pictures; like the Picture Styles group.

When you click away from the picture, the Picture Tools tab disappears, and the other groups come back.

Note    On-demand tabs appear for other activity areas, like tables, drawings, diagrams, and charts.
