How to Install Office Picture Manager in Office 2013, 2016 or 365.
The Office Picture Manager is an application, offered by Microsoft that you can use to easily manage, edit (crop, resize, flip, rotate, etc.) and share pictures. The Microsoft Office Picture Manager is included in Microsoft Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 versions, but, as you may know, is not included at the latest versions of Office suite 2013, 2016 and Office 365.
Microsoft has removed the Office Picture Manager at the latest versions of Office, because, as it states, has replaced the product with the Windows Photo Gallery application, which is included in Windows Live Essentials. But, Microsoft, has stopped its support (Windows Live Essentials) on January 10, 2017, because all its features (Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Writer & OneDrive) are included at the latest Windows versions (Windows 8.1 & Windows 10).
I don't know, if the Windows Photo Gallery is better that the Office Picture Manager, but I know, that the Office Picture Manager is a very useful photo editing, sharing and organizer program which is preferred by many users. So, I decided to write this article with detailed instructions, on how you can install the Office Picture Manager, if you own an Office 2013, Office 2016 or Office 365 version.
How to Install Microsoft Office Picture Manager in Office 2013, Office 2016 or Office 365.
Thankfully, Office Picture Manager is also included as a component in Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010,* which is a free Web and application design program used to build and customize SharePoint sites and applications.
* Note: Office Picture Manager isn't included anymore in SharePoint Designer 2016.
1. Download Microsoft SharePoint Designer, according to your Office bit version (32 or 64 bit)
2. When the download is completed, run the SharePoint Designer installer program ("SharePointDesigner.exe").
3. Accept the License Agreement.
4. At "Choose the installation you want" screen, select Customize.
5. Click the drop-down arrow, at three (3) main available labels (Microsoft SharePoint Designer, Office Shared Features & Office Tools) and select Not Available.
6. Then click to the "+" sign next to Office Tools to expand them.
7. Click the drop-down arrow next to Microsoft Office Picture Manager and select Run from My Computer.
8. Then click Install Now.
9. When the installation of Picture Manager is completed, close the installer.
That's it! From now on, you can launch the Picture Manager application by navigating to:
- Start > All Programs > Microsoft Office (Version) > Microsoft Office 2010 Tools > Microsoft Picture Manager.
