Despite being categorized as a word-processing program, Microsoft Word keeps adding more features that make it expand beyond its original scope — but that’s for good. In many ways, it resembles some basic functions of an image-editing program.

I’m talking about, color corrections, artistic effects, adding frames, removing background, and even drawing capability on the latest versions. Of course, a trivial function like flipping an image is already there decades ago.
