20.1. Inserting a Graphic

You can drag, paste, or insert a picture into a Word, Excel, or PowerPoint document. To insert a graphic, choose Insert Picture or click the Insert Picture button on the Drawing toolbar (in Entourage chose Message Insert Picture) and then select one of the following from the submenu:

  • Clip Art opens the Office Clip Gallery, as described below.

  • From File opens a dialog box where you can choose any graphics file on your Mac.

  • Horizontal Line (Word only) is a quick way to put a horizontal line between paragraphs without opening the Borders and Shading dialog box. These lines are actually GIF files. They're more decorative than standard lines and borders, and ideal for use on Web sites (see Chapter 8).

  • AutoShapes are an expanded, elaborate version of the familiar circles and squares that you create with drawing tools. For instance, AutoShapes include arrows, cubes, banners, and speech balloons.

  • WordArt allows you to change the look of text in a number of wacky, attention-getting ways. After typing the text, you can stretch, color, and distort it, using Office's drawing tools (page 684).

  • From Scanner or Camera lets you import directly from one of these devices connected to your Mac—sometimes. Its success depends on your model of digital camera or scanner.
