I work with MS Publisher and am familiar with VBA. Every time I put an image into a Publisher document, I want to add “shadow effects” to it. That requires me to select shadows to the right and bottom of the image, as if a light were shining on the picture from above left. A second step is to specify the colour of the shadow. Those are all automatic actions that I do manually.
Is there any way I can set a default shadow position and colour or else use VBA to have Publisher add the shadows in the right place and colour automatically? I suspect that Publisher does not work with VBA, so that may be out of the question. A solution would save me only about fifteen or twenty seconds for each picture, but since I have to do it hundreds of times a week, the time saved would add up.
Thanks for any suggestions. I fear the problem may be insolvable, yet I’m optimistic that someone far away from the Rocky Mountains and more experienced than I could solve my query in a trice.
