Hello everyone, today I would like to show you a surprising way to edit your photo. X-ray See Through cloth effects using Microsoft Word in specific. As you already know what Photoshop can do with lots of tools and huge editing capacity. In the next tutorial, I will show you how you can edit photos x-ray see-through cloth using Adobe Photoshop. But, for today I am about to show you how you can do that without using Photoshop. This is going to be something special that you can see step by step till the end.
Yeah, you heard that right. Today I will show you how to edit pictures to see through clothes using only Microsoft word [Surprise!].
So, let’s start!
In today’s tutorial, I will edit the dress in order to see through just using Microsoft office word processing software (Microsoft Word). I will use two female body images and make their cloth see-through (little bit x-ray effects on them). Above, you can already see the featured image and I am going to show you how to do exactly like that using Microsoft Word Software.
Note: For choosing images you need to find images that are a little bit transparent or semi-transparent. Because without the transparency in the image the effect will not going to work perfectly.
First Step: Find Image, Open MS-Word
Find an image that you are going to give x-ray see-through effects. Make sure your selected image has a little bit transparency so that you can do your thing for the purpose.
You can download some Images from this link.
Let’s open Microsoft word first. For this tutorial, I am using the latest version of Microsoft Word software beta 2019. This tutorial also works with Microsoft Word 2007, Microsoft Word 2010, Microsoft Word 2013 and Microsoft Word 2016.
So, if you have any of that software then you are good to go. Go to File > New > Select Blank Document
Second Step: Insert the Image
In this step, you need to insert your downloaded images to the blank document.
Just Go to the tab Insert > Now click the “Pictures” tab from the ribbon tab. See the below image.
Now select the desired image that you previously downloaded and click the “insert” button as below image.
Third Step: Zoom and Replace the Image
In this step, you need to zoom in your image as per your requirement and copy the image and place it beside the image.
Now select the second image and this will show the image option for you. There you have to select the “Format” tab. Then click the “Remove Background” ribbon tab.
Fourth Step: Select the portion that you want see-through
Check the image below. After clicking the “Remove Background” ribbon tab you will see some options for removing the background or selecting the image portion. In this version, MS-Word will automatically detect your image selection. You can change it depending on your requirements. The violet area is not selected but the normal color area is selected. But, for the job, we need the cloth portion only. You do that easily by Using “Mark Area to Keep” and “Mark Area to Remove” ribbon tab. “Mark Area to Keep” will allow you the portions you want to keep for further use. Opposite for “Mark Area to Remove” will not be kept. Use your accuracy to do this properly. Don’t worry. It’s not that hard.
Here I just selected the specific area using the “Mark Area to Remove” ribbon tab. Microsoft word is pretty much automated with these steps.
Now click on the “keep changes” ribbon tab and you will get your image background removed.
After selecting the background removed image, you will see a “Layout Option” after selection. As per the below image please select those marked options.
Last Steps: Let’s do the x-ray see-through cloth effects
Now, copy the main Image again and post it besides it as like previous. See below image;
Now again select the second image. After that, you will have the “Format” ribbon tab. Now, right-click on that image, here you will get the “Format Pictures” option.
After clicking it you will get “Format Picture” option tabs. Please select “picture” Icon and you will get 3 sub-option below it.
Click “Picture Correction” option and here you will get sharpen/soften, brightness and contrast option. When you change the slider of brightness you will see the changes in your selected images in real-time. You can try sharpness or contrast slides for your desired results. You can use autoformatted options right beside the editing tools you can use sliders or numbers to get your satisfactory one.
You can also try “Picture Color” options with saturation and temperature slides for more dramatic changes.
It’s complete now. You have done it. Below image is the result of our work. If you have followed the instructions perfectly then you already achieved x-ray see-through cloth effects in your desired image.
Now, it’s your turn.
I have done another image with the same technique. This time I will use white dresses for x-ray effects. Below is the before and after example.
Hope this will help you to understand more about Microsoft features. If you have any feedback please don’t hesitate to comment.
