The old adage-a picture is worth a thousand words-is still worth following, for mages and illustrations often get a point across more effectively than text alone. This 11-video course allows learners to explore the many effective tools offered by Word 2019 to amplify text with images, videos from online and local locations, and custom equations. Learn how to create hyperlinks to other sources of information as a guide to your reader. Key topics covered here include the use of universally recognized icons available in Word; various toolsets to help you choose the appropriate image; and how to use the Image styles feature. Observe how to adjust the text wrapping options of your document, if it contains images, figures or icons; images can be treated like words, surrounded by text, placed behind or in front of text and more. Learn practical methods for inserting a 3D model into your document-either from Word's collection or your own assembled file-and inserting watermarks, to indicate whether it is official or confidential. In order to practice what you have learned, you will find the Word document named Word 2019 for Windows: Illustrating Documents Exercise as well as the associated materials in the Resources section.
