When you complete this course, go on to Commercial printing IV: Using the Design Checker in Publisher 2007.

The kind of graphics you use in your publication is an important consideration. Because of the high resolution used in commercial printing, you need to use graphics that are suitable for this kind of output. That means that you must understand both the type of graphics you use and a bit about resolution.

In this course, you'll learn about the distinguishing characteristics of each type of graphic and what you need to know to use each type successfully.
