Using the drawing tools
When you work with pictures and illustrations, you will use the many tools that are available
on the Ribbon. These tools help enhance your slides to make your presentation visually
appealing to your audience.
When you insert a graphic or a graphic object, such as a shape or WordArt, PowerPoint
displays the Drawing Tools tab on the Ribbon. With these tools, you can create shapes and
apply styles to the shapes. You can also insert WordArt and arrange and resize your graphics.
