Simple tools make it easy to grab attention with photos

Swap pictures
Import all your pictures to a single canvas in Publisher, and swap them in and out of your design with a simple drag and drop. Experiment to find the right image, without wasting time.
Effects
Use professional-looking effects for text, shapes, and pictures, including softer shadows, reflections, and OpenType features such as ligatures and style alternatives that are familiar to use because they work like the effects in other Office applications that support them.
Online pictures
Use Publisher to search your online albums on Facebook, Flickr, and other services and add pictures directly to the document, without having to save them first to your desktop, laptop, or tablet.
Picture background
Use your photos as high resolution page backgrounds, and make your publications look professional and polished.
