What's new in Publisher 2013
Microsoft Publisher 2013 adds new capabilities geared to help you add, change, and format pictures and text with new and improved effects, like glow and bevel, so that your publications have a creative snap without adding a lot of work to your plate.
Adding and changing pictures
Sometimes you want to try a bunch of pictures in different spots in your publication. Publisher 2013 simplifies the process for adding, changing, and swapping pictures.
Publisher 2013 combines searching for pictures on your computer, from Office.com’s clip art gallery, and the web in one dialog.
From the scratch area you can drag a picture onto your publication’s page and drag it back off again or swap for another picture if you don’t like the way it looks.
To swap two pictures, whether they are both on the page or one is in the scratch area, select one picture and drag it by the mountain and sun icon to the other picture until a pink highlight appears around the picture and release the mouse button.
Creating picture backgrounds
You can take your pictures and use them as the background for your publication’s pages. Right-click on the picture, choose Apply to Background and then either Fill to expand the picture to take up the entire background.
There are many new picture effects available. You can apply shadows, reflections, glow, soft edges, bevels, and 3-D rotations to your pictures. Select the picture and click Picture Effects, on the Picture Tools – Format tab.
