Find the appropriate graphical image.
To use graphical images, also called graphics, in a Word document, the image must be stored
digitally in a ﬁ le. Files containing graphical images are available from a variety of sources:
Word includes a collection of predeﬁ ned graphical images that you can insert in a •
Microsoft has free digital images on the Web for use in a document. Other Web sites also •
have images available, some of which are free, while others require a fee.
You can take a picture with a digital camera and download it, which is the process of •
copying the digital picture from the camera to your computer.
With a scanner, you can convert a printed picture, drawing, or diagram to a digital ﬁ le. •
If you receive a picture from a source other than yourself, do not use the ﬁ le until you
are certain it does not contain a virus. A virus is a computer program that can damage ﬁ les
and programs on your computer. Use an antivirus program to verify that any ﬁ les you use
are virus free.
Establish where to position and how to format the graphical image.
The content, size, shape, position, and format of a graphic should capture the interest of
passersby, enticing them to stop and read the ﬂ yer. Often, the graphic is the center of
attraction and visually the largest element on a ﬂ yer. If you use colors in the graphical
image, be sure they are part of the document’s color scheme.
To Insert a Picture
The next step in creating the ﬂ yer is to insert the picture of the horse and rider so that it is centered on the
blank line above the bulleted list. The picture, which was taken with a digital camera, is available on the Data Files
for Students. See the inside back cover of this topic for instructions on downloading the Data Files for Students, or
contact your instructor for information on accessing the required ﬁ les. The following steps insert a centered picture,
which, in this example, is located on the same USB ﬂ ash drive that contains the saved ﬂ yer.
