Microsoft Word 2010 introduced Artistic Effects to add different effects to your photos and images. One of these effects is the inverted colour effect, which inverts colours and makes the image look like its photo negative. Hover your cursor over each of the Artistic Effects thumbnails to see a preview of that effect applied to the image. The Artistic Effects options allow you to tweak your photo or image after the effect is applied. These instructions are for Microsoft Word 2010.
