Pre-Requisites: Word 2007 Basic 3 strongly recommended

This course is for the novice user who has little or no experience with Microsoft Word except for our Word 2007 Basic 1, Basic 2, and Basic 3 courses.

We will begin by learning about inserting Pictures into your documents. You'll see the sample pictures that come with Windows, learn how to insert, resize, move, rotate, and delete pictures. You'll also learn about text wrapping.

Next, you'll learn how to copy a picture from just about any Web site, save that picture to your Windows desktop, and then incorporate that picture into your Word documents.

You will learn how to adjust the brightness and contrast of your pictures, use the Picture Style Gallery to add effects, and change the picture shape, border, and other settings.

Next, we'll learn how to use Clip Art in our documents. You'll explore Word's Clip Art Organizer, learn how to search for Clip Art by keywords, and how to recolor Clip Art.

In the next lesson, work with Shapes and Text Boxes. You'll learn about the Drawing Tools, the Shape Style Gallery, shadow and 3D effects. You'll learn how to add text to almost any shape, and how to insert Text Boxes.

Next we'll learn about SmartArt. We'll see how to make simple diagrams, like a Basic Chevron Process. You'll learn how to change the layout of SmartArt, the SmartArt Style Gallery, how to add items, change shape styles, and how to delete SmartArt.

In the next lesson, you'll learn how to add Charts to your Word documents using Microsoft Excel. You'll see the different chart types, how to enter data into an Excel spreadsheet, and how to use the Chart Style Gallery.

In Word 2007, Excel is very important for working with charts. Excel comes with most versions of Microsoft Office. If you don't have Excel, however, don't worry. This lesson is only about 7 minutes long, so the rest of the course will apply to you.

Next, you'll learn about WordArt, the WordArt Gallery, letter spacing, WordArt styles, and how to change the borders and the shape of your WordArt.

Again, this is the perfect class for anyone who is new to Microsoft Word 2007, and has finished my Word 2007 Basic 1, Basic 2, and Basic 3 courses. If you have little or no experience with word processing, or you just want to get familiar with how Word 2007 works, this class is for you.

Of course, if you have any questions about whether or not this class is for you, please contact me.

Student Interaction: Word 2007 Basic 4

Richard on 1/4/2009:  This course covers graphics, illustrations, images, pictures, clip art, shapes, text boxes, SmartArt, WordArt, and charts with Microsoft Excel
 ron on 1/9/2011: how can I get all the tools such as picture frame and shade effects, etc?

Reply from Richard Rost:

They come with Word 2007. Just follow the video and do what I do, and you should see them all in there. If not, it's possible that whomever installed Office for you did not perform a COMPLETE installation.

 Delilah O on 2/5/2012: I have Word 10 and I think the application of picture/photo to blank page of text should be similar as you demontrate in the video. I am unable to move the photo about the page as in your video?
Jackie Appleby on 12/8/2014: Using word 2013 I can't see the picture shapes option?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Have you looked in every tab in the ribbon?
Is Word full screen, sometimes options are hidden when collapsed and need expanding or a dropdown to see all options.

Pitso Melamu on 2/27/2015: TOPIC GROUPING OBJECTS IN OFFICE 2007 OR 2013:
USING THE DRAWING CANVAS, HOW CAN YOU GROUP A PICTURE AND WORDART. EVEN IF I PRESS SHIFT AND HOLD IT AND TRY TO CLICK ON THE SECOND OBJECT I CANT. PLEASE HELP ME ASAP.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

I'm not sure you can.
One option would be to group them together in Paint and copy that into Word.
