Picture Perfect

September 7, 2006

I’m loving this specific element of functionality in office 2007, mainly because i believe so deeply in the value of graphics. I’m an impacient person, in a world of information overload a picture paints a thousand words and make a page full of text that much more engaging. One of our goals for the Office 2007 user interface was to make it easier to create beautiful output and this does just that in much less time!

In many circumstances, you are judged by the quality of the output you create. And software that helps you create beautiful output makes you look smart and feel good – i sometimes think i need all the help i can get 🙂

Many of the features of the new UI, including the Ribbon, galleries, and Live Preview, were designed together to create an environment in which you can discover and easily use the power of Office’s formatting capabilities. Add to this the new Office 2007 graphics engine, and suddenly in a few clicks, you can create beautiful-looking output without learning to be a Photoshop expert.

Every kind of object in Office 2007 (table, chart, picture, drawing, etc.) has an overall gallery on its first contextual tab which allows you to set the overall style for the object.

Every object has a gallery of overall styles available

Although you can continue tweaking and formatting to get highly customized results, the default choices are designed to be beautiful right out-of-the-box; with one click you can achieve graphics designer-quality results meaning you can look like you know what your doing when really you’ve got the right tools!!!!!!!
