Morrison / Wells / Ruffolo CLB: A Comp Guide to IC3 5E Formatting Columns, Borders, and Shading Lesson 17 6 Desktop publishing is the process of creating a document using a computer to lay out text and graphics.

Morrison / Wells / Ruffolo CLB: A Comp Guide to IC3 5E Formatting Columns, Borders, and Shading (continued) Lesson 17 Formatting Text in Columns A section is an area within a document that can have its own separate page formats such as the page orientation, margins, and the number of columns. To change the page formats for one portion of the document, you must divide the document into multiple sections by creating a section break. A section break controls the section formatting of the text

that precedes it. After dividing the document into multiple sections, you can apply different formats in each section. 7 Morrison / Wells / Ruffolo CLB: A Comp Guide to IC3 5E Formatting Columns, Borders, and Shading (continued) Formatting Text in Columns (continued)

Graphics created in other applications are saved in a variety of formats, including JPEG (*.jpg), TIFF (*.tif), and bitmap (*.bmp). Morrison / Wells / Ruffolo CLB: A Comp Guide to IC3 5E Inserting and Formatting Graphics (continued) Inserting Clip Art and Pictures Clip art is a graphic that is ready to insert into a document.

Microsoft Office.com Web site. You can access pictures you have saved in the My Pictures folder, or on SkyDrive or other sites. Lesson 17 14 Morrison / Wells / Ruffolo CLB: A Comp Guide to IC3 5E Inserting and Formatting Graphics (continued) Inserting Clip Art and Pictures (continued) Lesson 17

15 Morrison / Wells / Ruffolo CLB: A Comp Guide to IC3 5E Inserting and Formatting Graphics (continued) Lesson 17 16 Resizing and Cropping a Graphic To work with a graphic, you must select it.

You will know it is selected when you see sizing handles, which are eight small circles and squares on the border of the graphic. When a graphic is selected, you can resize, cut, copy, paste, delete, and move it just as you would text. Morrison / Wells / Ruffolo CLB: A Comp Guide to IC3 5E Inserting and Formatting Graphics (continued) Lesson 17

17 Resizing and Cropping a Graphic (continued) Resizing stretches or shrinks the dimensions of a graphic. When you crop a graphic, you cut off portions of the graphic that you do not want to show. When you outcrop a graphic, you add extra white space around the image. Morrison / Wells / Ruffolo CLB: A Comp Guide to IC3 5E Inserting and Formatting Graphics (continued) Positioning a Graphic

When you insert a graphic, Word positions it in the line of text. You can format the text in the document to wrap around the graphic by applying a text-wrapping format to the graphic. You can then drag and drop the graphic anywhere within the printable area of the page. Lesson 17 18 Morrison / Wells / Ruffolo CLB: A Comp Guide to IC3 5E

Inserting and Formatting Graphics (continued) Lesson 17 19 Adjusting Colors and Applying Styles and Effects You can customize clip art or a photograph by changing its colors. You can recolor both photos and illustrations.

For photos, there are also options for changing the color saturation and the color tone. You can apply border styles and other special formats, such as shadows, soft edges, and 3-D effects. You can add artistic effects to make a picture look like a sketch or a painting.

Morrison / Wells / Ruffolo CLB: A Comp Guide to IC3 5E Inserting and Formatting Graphics (continued) Removing Backgrounds from Pictures When working with illustrations and photographs that have a solid color background, you can hide the background color by making the color transparent using the Set Transparent Color feature. When you apply the Remove Background feature, Word automatically suggests the elements to be removed from the image. Lesson 17 21

Morrison / Wells / Ruffolo CLB: A Comp Guide to IC3 5E Inserting and Formatting Graphics (continued) Removing Backgrounds from Pictures (continued) After a background has been removed from illustrations and photographs, you can still add effects to the picture.
