    I would like to blur or soften the edges of some of my photographs. My old
    Home Publisher used to do this as there was a "soften" option in the EDIT
    section. I have worked out how to use the fill effects to get a similar
    result but it doesn't seem to work on inserted photos or when I insert a
    photo into an auto shape. Any suggestions??

    Home Publishing and Publisher are two different programs. You will need a
    photo editing program to do that. I recommend Adobe Photoshop Elements but
    there are others.

    If you have Word 2007 there is a soften edge utility for photos. Once you
    soften the edges you can copy/paste into Publisher.
