Why Use Graphics?

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. And how! When you add graphics to your worksheets, you're adding emphasis, visual impact, excitement, and visual interest with a sprinkling of artwork.

Despite the huge variety of wonderful clip art that's available, you still might not be able to find that perfect image. Or perhaps you'd just prefer to create your own art. In either case, you don't have to be a talented artist to create vibrant, eye-catching graphics.

Excel gives you such a wealth of artwork and effects to add to your worksheets that you might not know where to begin. But, nevertheless, graphics can make your worksheets explode with life and energy.
