Arranging your images
Quick picture styles
If you have a long column, you can put a picture in the middle of it. In this case,
however, readers might get confused about where the story continues when they
ﬁ nish the preceding column. Therefore, the best place to put a picture is at the top
or bottom of a column. Try to line up the top edge of your picture with the top of
the text, or the bottom edge of the picture with the bottom of the text.
To help you resize and line up images, there is a grid you can use, shown in Figure
3.8. This is purely an onscreen guide and it won’t print on your document. You
switch it on by clicking in the box beside Gridlines, behind the View tab of the
ribbon. When you’ve ﬁ nished with the grid, untick the box again.
