Excel has more than just charts to offer in the way of visual presentation. Graphic tools such as pictures, shapes, SmartArt, WordArt, and screenshots are all ways to enhance the visual impact of documents that tend to be dominated by numbers and text. The course shows how to insert and edit shapes, text boxes, and pictures. We’ll see how to add a SmartArt graphic and we’ll demonstrate how to add watermarks to your spreadsheets. We’ll also look at how you can use workbook themes to enhance the presentation of your data.
