Word 2007 Basic 4 Now Available
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

I've finished another Word 2007 Basic course. This is Level 4, and it covers graphics, illustrations, images, pictures, clip art, shapes, text boxes, SmartArt, charts, and WordArt.

Yes, it covers a ton of material about inserting pictures and other images into your documents. Microsoft has really made some excellent additions to Word with the new graphics effects, style galleries, and lots more.

Click here for more information on the course, including the full outline (with screen shots) and sample videos.

Here's the simple outline:
