  16. 16. Grouping<br />Often times you use more than one shape or graphic to form an image or logo. Word lets you “GROUP” the components so that you don’t have to move each one separately when you need to reposition.<br />3 Shapes<br />3 shapes arranged<br />Once the shapes are arranged the way you want them, select one, then select the other components by holding down the controlkey and clicking until they are all selected.

The default is that the image created last is on the top. Word lets you change that by changing the “ORDER”<br />This step has to be done before components are “grouped”<br />
  18. 18. The Drawing Canvas<br />When you create a drawing, you can choose to use a drawing canvas. The drawing canvas is an area on which you can draw multiple shapes. Because the shapes are contained within the drawing canvas, they can be moved or resized as a single unit.<br />To use the drawing canvas click here before you add any shapes<br />

  21. 21. Inserting Pictures from the Web or a File<br /> <br />One way to insert an image into a Word document is to paste it in. To do this, begin by opening the file that contains the picture you want to use. Right click on the picture. Choose  Copy to copy the picture to the Clipboard.Now switch to the Word document in which you want to paste the picture. <br />You can also use the Insert menu to insert a picture from a file on disk. Begin by positioning the insertion point where you want the picture to appear. Then choose Insert  Picture  From File to display the Insert Picture dialog box. Use the dialog box to locate and select the picture file you want to insert.<br />When you click the Insert button, the picture appears at the insertion point. <br />http://www.artcyclopedia.com/<br />
  22. 22. Changing the Size of an Image<br />When you select an image in your document, 8 handles appear.<br />You can resize the image and keep the proportions by using the corner handles to resize.<br />You can make the image wider or longer by using the handles in the center of the tops or sides, but this will stretch the image.<br />handle<br />

  25. 25. Cropping Images<br />When you choose the cropping tool, your cursor becomes the tool. Place it over one of the “handles” and drag in to remove unwanted edges of the image.<br />click on the cropping tool<br />Cropping removes the outside edges of an image to eliminate excessive or irrelevant background content of a photo. <br />
  26. 26. Wrap Text Around a Graphic<br />When you insert a graphic, Word puts it at the position of the cursor, sitting on the base of the current line. Sometimes, you want more control over the position of a graphic in your document. You may want text to run to the edges of the graphic, flow around the graphic, or even run on top of the graphic. <br />Select the image that best represents the way you want the graphic formatted in relation to your text. Try different effects to see how you like them. You can change your selection by clicking in the alternative boxes. <br />If you find that you can not move a graphic where you want to, it is probably set as “in line with text”. Try selecting “in front of text” and it will move where ever you need it.<br />
