Illustrating Your Worksheets with Pictures, SmartArt, and More

  • Guy Hart-Davis


To give your workbooks visual interest, you can add graphics, shapes, SmartArt diagrams, and WordArt items to them. Graphics are pictures and images in the various formats that Excel can import, and shapes are Excel’s built-in shapes, which include everything from simple arrows and regular shapes (such as circles, squares, and triangles) to complex shapes you create on the fly. SmartArt includes a range of graphics such as organization charts and flowcharts, while WordArt is graphical text that you create to your preferred design.
