The following example sets the brightness, contrast, and color transformation for shape one on the active document and crops 18 points off the bottom of the shape. For this example to work, shape one must be either a picture or an OLE object.

With ActiveDocument.Shapes(1).PictureFormat 
 .Brightness = 0.3 
 .Contrast = 0.7 
 .ColorType = msoPictureGrayScale 
 .CropBottom = 18 
End With
