See through cloth with Microsoft Word

We have previously published tutorials on How to Create See-trough Effects with both Photoshop and GIMP . This is the 3rd part of our See-through Effects Tutorial Series.

But have you ever heard or imagined that you can also sneak through clothes using Microsoft Word? Don’t be astonished, the answer is “Yes”! If you follow this tutorial you can do this image editing job even without knowing any function of tools. You may not have Photoshop or GIMP. But, you certainly have Microsoft Word installed in your PC or Mac.

However, if you want to work reading this tutorial, the minimum thing requirement is that you have to know the Picture Tools and it’s operations in Microsoft word. As it is a simple thing, we think you can do this sneaky see-through cloth effect in MS word very easily.

Image selection for this type of work is very important. You can select images with thin clothes for best see through result. Actually, we want to mean that the image must have hidden pixels where the skin and clothes’ pixels color blend in specific ratio. If the clothes’ color is deep, it is hard to get the see-through or x-ray effect.

See the attached image we have chosen for this tutorial and follow the step by step techniques.

  1. Open your image in Word file going to Insert option from the top menu bar and click on Pictures. You will get image gallery and click on your image so that it gets inserted.
