Easier background removal
We've made it easier to remove and edit the background of a picture. Word automatically detects the general background area, so you no longer need to draw a rectangle around the foreground of your picture.
You can now also draw free-form lines using the pencil for marking areas to keep or remove—no more being limited to drawing just straight lines.
