Task 4 How to Insert a WordArt Image

WordArt is a handy tool for creating interesting text effects in your Office projects. You create art out of words, hence the name WordArt. It enables you to turn text into graphic objects that bend, twist, rotate, and assume a variety of special effects. You can turn ordinary words into works of art. WordArt is especially helpful when you need to create a company logo or a banner for a newsletter or flyer, or when you want draw attention to important words, such as sale or urgent. Once you've designed a WordArt object, you can move and resize it as needed.

  1. Open the WordArt Gallery

    Choose Insert, Picture, WordArt to open the WordArt Gallery dialog box. Or you can click the WordArt button, if the Drawing toolbar is displayed.

  2. Choose an Effect

    Select a WordArt style that best suits your needs. The samples show the shape and effect of the style, but not the actual text that will appear. Click OK to continue.

  3. Enter Your Own Text

    In the Edit WordArt Text dialog box, type the text you want to use as your WordArt object.

  4. Format the Text

    Use the Font drop-down list box to select another font style, if necessary. You can also change the font size and apply bold and italic. When you've finished making your formatting selections, click OK.

  5. WordArt Is Created

    The WordArt object appears in your Office file, along with the WordArt toolbar. Use the toolbar buttons to fine-tune your WordArt object. (Refer to the How-To Hints that follow for suggestions.) You may have to move or resize the WordArt object. To learn more about moving and resizing objects, see Task 5, "How to Move, Size, and Rotate an Object."
