When you restack objects, you can send an object
back one object at a time or push it to the lowest
object. Or, you can bring an object forward one
object at a time or bring it to the top of the stack.
Follow these steps:
Select the objects you want grouped together and
choose Home>Drawing>Arrange>Group. In Figure
15-28, you see three independent objects on the
left and one grouped object on the right. If you
want to ungroup the object, select it and choose
Home>Drawing>Arrange>Ungroup. To regroup,
select any one of the original objects and choose
Select the object you want to reorder.
2. Choose Home>Drawing>Arrange.
3. Choose one of the Order Objects options:
Bring to Front, Send to Back, Bring Forward,
or Send Backward.
Now take a look at the objects in Figure 15-27.

adjust the image brightness and contrast, apply a
color accent, give it a frame, or rotate it
threedimensionally. You can even crop it to get rid of
unwanted areas. You accomplish all of these
picture tasks by using the Picture Tools Format tab
that appears on the Ribbon when you select a
picture. Figure 15-29 shows you the Picture Tools
After changing the stacking order.
Grouping Objects Together
You can group multiple objects together to form a
single object, which makes moving, resizing, and
reshaping objects much easier. For example,
instead of resizing each of four objects individually,
you can group them and resize only one. A really
nice feature about the group function is that if you
need to you can easily ungroup the object, make
any desired individual changes, and then quickly
