What Is a Graphics Object?

Clip art, word art, pictures, photographs, or any shape you draw is called a graphics object. After you add a graphics object to your worksheet, you can select it and perform actions such as copying, moving, sizing, and applying attributes. The possibilities are endless.

With Excel's powerful drawing tools, you can create a simple illustration with rectangles, squares, ovals, circles, straight lines, curved lines, and freeform lines; and then you can embellish your drawing with the editing tools on the Drawing toolbar.
