We're using the term picture inclusively to refer to a variety of graphic formats and sources, including:
A rectangle, circle, arrow, line, or AutoShape.
An independent graphic file, in a format such as Graphics Interchange Format (GIF), Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG), Bitmap (BMP), Windows Metafile Format (WMF), Tagged Image File Format (TIF), or Portable Network Graphics (PNG).
A scanned photograph or a picture taken with a digital camera.
In the previous lesson, you learned that all text in Publisher exists within containers called text boxes. Likewise, each picture exists within a container called a frame. Frames give you the same control over pictures that text boxes give you with text. You can place a picture anywhere on a page—including inside a text box—and you can change its size and appearance.
This lesson will demonstrate how to add pictures to publications, how to move and resize them, how to change the way pictures look, and how to control the way text wraps around them.
