Exercise 1 - Insert Graphic Elements

There are several types of graphic elements you can add to Word documents. The term "picture" generally refers to graphics added from a file or the clipboard. Other graphics elements in Word include shapes, text boxes, SmartArt, WordArt, and charts.

Although pictures downloaded from the web and screen shots are inserted differently than most pictures, they are really graphics files, and once they are in a document, you format them as you would any other picture. One way to know if an object in Word is a picture is to select it. When a picture is selected, the Pictures Tools Format tab appears on the ribbon. The exact appearance of the tab you see might be different depending on your screen size.

There are several ways to insert pictures into a Word document, including pasting, opening a graphics file, and taking a screenshot.
