Microsoft Office Picture Manager is a software program included with Microsoft Office suite starting with version 2003. It is a basic image-editing and image-management program, designed to be similar to iPhoto and other such applications. It replaced Microsoft Photo Editor, which had been included since Office 97.
The Picture Manager has a few capabilities not present in the Paint program included with Windows. It has the ability to crop, resize, and convert images between various formats like Paint, but with comparably better picture quality, due to being able to select compression level.
It also sports several more advanced capabilities, such as batch editing/saving/renaming, fine-tuning of midtones, highlights, and shadows, and red-eye removal. On the other hand, it has easy-to-use features such as one-click image compression, and resizing to a user's own choice. It does not however, offer any sort of actual drawing or text-editing tools.
One of its unique features is the ability to link and upload pictures to a Microsoft SharePoint picture library. Therefore, a user can easily share photos among team members over the Internet. It is also possible to easily export photos from the program to other Office programs, while allowing a user to specify custom image dimensions.
