I recently upgraded to Microsoft Office 11 (I believe I previously had 2003). I noticed that the new software does not have some of the same features regarding editing photos and clip art.

I used this mostly in PowerPoint in the past. I have noticed in the new PP that there is no lasso tool anymore, and it appears that you cannot ungroup inserted clipart (even the WMF files) to edit them to remove unwanted elements or recolor. Very frustrating as I found these tools very helpful before.

Any suggestions or work arounds?

Really appreciate any help! If this can't be done any longer in Office, any suggestions for software that could help?
