How to Put Pictures Together to Make One on Microsoft Office


Microsoft can stitch two or more photos to create a panoramic effect. For example, if you photographed an expansive cityscape in three overlapping shots, the Windows Live Photo Gallery will merge the three shots into one panoramic photo. The "Create" tab on the command Ribbon contains the "Panorama" button. The saved file can insert into an Office 2010 program, such as Word or Excel.

Things You'll Need

  • Windows 7
  • Windows Live Photo Gallery

Create the Panoramic Image

  • Click the "Start" button. The "Start" menu opens.

  • Choose "Windows Live Photo Gallery" from the list. A window opens.

  • Hold the "Ctrl" key and click two or more thumbnail images.
