Changing Colors to images
using MS Word (Version 2007)
I used MS Word 2007 for this particular tutorial; however, you can accomplish the same outcome using MS Word 2010 as well. The Picture Tab still holds the color changing buttons, but they are found under Color…Recolor.
1. Begin by opening up Microsoft Word and inserting a picture of your choice.
2. I have chosen CS Designs “How I love you” background art image for my project. (NOTE: Please always check with the artist regarding their Angel Policy before making changes to their artwork.)
3. Determine how many colors you would like to add to your image; because this will determine how many copies of the image you will need (not including your original). Example: I have chosen to add one color to my image; therefore, I need one additional copy of the image besides my original.
4. Once you have determined how many colors you would like to use, then click on one of your copies and the Picture Tab will be highlighted in MS Word. Under the Picture Tab, locate the “Recolor” button and select one of the “light variation” colors. I chose red.

6. The final step is to layer your color image on top of your original image.
Now you can print your image and use it on a card or project. Don’t forget to check out next month’s issue of AWNB Ezine to see how I use this background wordart.
