    I have a picture in Microsoft Office Picture Manager that I right click on
    and press Set as Desktop Background. However, when the picture appears as my
    desktop background, it is so much larger than the actual picture itself that
    all I see on the desktop is the center of the picture blown up to an absurd
    proportion. I can't even see the people in the picture.

    What is causing this and how do I correct it?

    Thanx

    It depends on what operating system you are using and has nothing to
    do with Office.
    If XP, then rightclick the desktop and choose Properties.
    On the Desktop tab use Stretch instead of Center or Tile

    Use a third party viewer such as www.xnview.com Right click your image, set as
    Wallpaper.
    Xnview is free.
