Applying a Shape to a Picture
After you insert a picture into your document, you can select it and apply one of Office’s shapes to it (New!). The picture appears in the shape just like it has been cropped. The Picture Shape gallery makes it easy to choose the shape you want to use. The Picture Shape gallery is organized into categories—including rectangles, basic shapes, block arrows, equation shapes, flowchart, stars and banners, callouts, and action buttons—to make it easier to find the shape you want. You can try different shapes to find the one you want.
