    cut a circular part of an image? (office97/SR2)

    Is there a simple way to cut a circular part of an image?

    I'm in mind to do a simple graphic on a web page/Word document. The original image is that of an envelope-size card, and I'll show that in a size too small to read the text.

    I want to have one of those "magnifying" effects, where a small segment of the text is reproduced full-size inside a circle, with a cone-like descent to the full image.

    I can't "cut" a circular section from Paint(brush), and I can't see how to do it in Microsoft Photo Editor.

    The MS Word Drawing tool bar lets me place a circle atop the image and semi-transparent lets me see through the circle, but I still can't cut it as a circle.

    I think you will need an image editing program such as Photo Paint or Paint Shop Pro. You can use the circular masks to then copy and paste circular segments.

    John, my belated thanks. I am starting off with Francois suggestion, and if that doesn't work I'll try yours.

    This is a nagging issue for me. I do very little in the way of graphics, being mainly a text person.

    You're welcome Chris. The Hardcopy solution does indeed look very simple.
