Chapter 8. Word Meets Web > Graphics, Sounds, and Movies

8.3. Graphics, Sounds, and Movies

Both Word's Clip Art Gallery and the Web itself are brimming with images that you can use to adorn your Web pages. You can also use any of Word's drawing tools, such as AutoShapes and WordArt (see page 682), in the Web pages you create. When you save the Web page, Word saves the graphic in the Web page's folder as a GIF file (see the sidebar box on page 296).

Graphics do enhance your Web page's appearance. Keep in mind, however, that pictures take much longer to download than the text that surrounds them. Try to strike a balance, only using a couple pictures per page for the typical information-focused Web site. Remember, almost 50 percent of Web denizens are using dial-up, narrow-band (56 kpbs) connections.
