factfile3.5 Great Graphics


butterfliesGraphics add impact to any publication and can be used in many ways, as demonstrated in the example publication. As your assignment for Unit 05 is a print publication, it is important that the graphics you use, especially photographs, are high resolution, unlike the optimized images you would prepare for a webpage or presentation.

Graphics can be grouped, can bleed to the edge of a page, can have text flow over them or wrap around them. They are easy to import and manage in PagePlus because the program lets you insert pictures in several different ways and in a wide variety of file formats, including bitmaps, vector images, and metafiles.

For more detailed information and help with picture editing, manipulation and graphic file types, see the Digital Imaging unit.
