SmartArt graphics add color, shape, and emphasis to your text and data, and they're a snap to use. You can easily try out a variety of SmartArt graphics to see which one works best for getting your point across. An organization chart? A time line? A process with sequential tasks? Non-sequential items? With SmartArt graphics, you can experiment as much as you want with different formats and styles. You can preview styles before choosing one, so you don't have to apply styles over and over again to find the one you want. And after you apply a style, you can customize it with colors, animation, and effects such as shadows, bevels, and glows, and more.
