Where is Office Picture Manager?
« on: August 24, 2015, 06:54:27 AM »
Good morning to all of you!

I used this utility for a long time, to crop and edit my pictures easily without any third party program. But suddenly I can't find it! It just disappeared!!!  :(

DR M,

Which version of Office are we talking about? 2007? Which Windows System?

If Windows 8.1 or Win10 and Microsoft Office 2007:

Try this:
Go to: Program Files (x86)” Folder--->Microsoft Office--->Office 12
Scroll down and try to find this file: OIS.EXE (program - 269 kb)

Highlight it and rightclick it and send it to your desktop as a shortcut

It's strange, because till now I used right click on image and then open with Microsoft Picture Manager.
Microsoft Picture Manager is not in the Microsoft Tools Folder.
But where did it go???

I know cropping has been added directly in several Office programs - once you put the picture and select it a picture-specific ribbon shows up with options such as crop, recolor, correct, etc. Not sure if it's a direct replacement for Office Picture Manager (to be honest I hadn't used it) but thought I'd mention in case this helps.

Panos,

Depending on how much editing power you need you might want to try the very popular and steady (as in it has been around for a long time!) freeware program Irfanview.  The current version is 4.40.  It is a very lightweight (as in it takes up very little space), fast, and simple program that works as both a viewer and editor.  You can investigate at " http://www.irfanview.com/ ".

Thank you, v_v.

I have read everything in your links, and I tried Irfanview for a little. It's very good, indeed. Although, I decided to uninstalled it, as I can do anything I want with Libre Draw and Paint.Net, which are already installed in my computer.

Aaron, yes, in Word and Power Point you can edit a picture (crop, adjust color, brightness, contrast etc.). But you have to insert there the picture and then save it as an image. It's not just a right click on the picture, open it in a program-editor, edit and save it. I got Microsoft Office 2013 recently, as a present, and I expected a lot from it. I was a little disappointed when I realized that Office Picture Manager is missing...

Dr M, there is a portable version of Irfan. That's what I use on my desktop computer. I set it up so that when I right click a picture, I can select open with Irfan.exe. Windows Photo Viewer just doesn't offer much when I want to shrink or crop a picture.

Yesterday I had to use my husband's desktop computer and wanted to work with a jpg on a USB stick. Unfortunately, I didn't put Irfan portable on his computer. I got frustrated so today, I'll put Irfan on his just in case I have to do a bit more work on his computer.  :D

Crop, adjust color, brightness, contrast, flip... These are the main things I used to do with Office Picture Manager. Yes, Irfanview can do all these very well. But I will stay with Libre Draw and Paint.Net, which can do the same things very well too. Thank you, anyway!
