The right type of image or illustration can give your document more oomph.
You’re creating a Word document with just plain text. And it looks kind of blah. One way to enhance a document is with the right type of visuals. But instead of just using the same old clip art and standard images, you can truly spice up and illustrate your document with shapes, icons, and models.
With shapes, you create lines, squares, arrows, callouts, and other objects to call attention to or highlight text in your document. With icons, you can include drawings of people, faces, and places to better explain or even replace certain text. And with 3D models, you can make your documents pop off the screen or page with three-dimensional images that you can grab online or create yourself.
Let’s check out how to spice up your Word documents with the right shapes, icons, and models.
For this article I’m using Word 2016 as usual. You should be able to access most of these features in the past couple of versions of Word. However, 3D models work only in Office 2016 and Office 365.
