Get visual with SmartArt graphics

Applying effects to selected shapes


The style you've applied to the graphic has given it a great look. Yet there's more you can do, working at the level of individual shapes within the graphic. You do this on the Format tab within SmartArt Tools.

Callout 1 Select the shape or shapes you want to change. In the picture, we've selected several shapes.
Callout 2 On the Format tab, look in the Shape Styles group for Shape Effects, and click its arrow.
Callout 3 Choose from the effects, such as the Shadow effects.

Or choose a different bevel, a reflection, or a glow. There's also a gallery of styles, to the left of this menu, that are just for shapes.
