PictureFormat.IncrementContrast method (Word)

Changes the contrast of the picture by the specified amount.


expression. IncrementContrast( _Increment_ )

expression Required. A variable that represents a 'PictureFormat' object.


Name Required/Optional Data type Description
Increment Required Single Specifies how much to change the value of the Contrast property for the picture. A positive value increases the contrast; a negative value decreases the contrast.


Use the Contrast property to set the absolute contrast for the picture.

You cannot adjust the contrast of a picture past the upper or lower limit for the Contrast property. For example, if the Contrast property is initially set to 0.9 and you specify 0.3 for the Increment argument, the resulting contrast level will be 1.0, which is the upper limit for the Contrast property, instead of 1.2.


This example increases the contrast for all embedded OLE objects on the active document that aren't already set to maximum contrast.

Dim docActive As Document 
Dim shapeLoop As Shape 
Set docActive = ActiveDocument 
For Each shapeLoop In docActive.Shapes 
 If shapeLoop.Type = msoEmbeddedOLEObject Then 
 shapeLoop.PictureFormat.IncrementContrast 0.1 
 End If 
Next shapeLoop
