    This is one of my favorite apps in Office 2007 / 2010. I use it to easily crop, rotate, and adjust brightness/contrast on images.... I can't find it anymore

    I have installed Office 2013 Professional Plus Preview

    This is a big bummer :(

    Yeah looks like they have finally done away with it now, from looking at it though it doesn't seem to have had any noticeable GUI updates since 2003, maybe they thought many didn't use it or didn't want to update it to look Metro-ish, it did look pretty outdated when compared to say Office 2010.

    From what people have said the other programs (Word, PowerPoint etc.) have their own individual editing tools inside.

    I liked Picture Manager being able to resize many pictures/photos at once.
    Hopefully there will be another way to do this if PM is actually gone from O'2013.

    I use Windows Live Photo Gallery which I feel is a much more program specific picture editing tool.

    In fact, you have to install full core Office 2010 to use small part of it - old Picture Manager. I switch to Photo Gallery in MS Essentials instead.

    Install Fast Stone Image Viewer. The best pic manager.

    Beginning I don't like, forced to use I find it's more efficient and advanced with many nice features of simple and quick editing.
