Microsoft Publisher Florist Flyer Tutorial
Step 11: Add More Text
Next add the Company Address -
"89 Adrienne Lane, Alyssatown, Fl 34332, Tel. 555.111.2323, Fax 555.111.4434".
Create a new Text Box for each block of Text.
Use the Font Family "Segoe Print" which is a free Font that was downloaded at FontFreak. Style is "Normal", Size is "18" and Layout is "Centered".
Some of the Text on the Flyer is made larger and bold for emphasis.
Step 12: Line Spacing
Next reselect all the Text and select the Line Spacing Icon.
This will bring up the Paragraph Window.
In the Line Spacing section, change "Between Lines" to "0.75sp".
The Formatted Text should look like this:
Step 13: Royalty Free Images
Here I downloaded the Images of 3 Flowers from Clker, which is a site where you can download Royalty Free Clipart.
Visit Public-Domain-Image, and OpenClipArt as well.
Step 14: Add Images
To insert Images select the Picture Frame Icon on the Objects Menu Bar.
Next select "Picture from File", or go to the Insert Menu > Picture > From File.
Step 15: Resize Image
Once the Image has been inserted, Resize it by selecting one of the Circles and holding down the Ctrl + Shift Keys together, so that you don't get a disproportionate Image.
Here is another way to Resize the Image.
You will notice that when the Image is selected, the Picture Menu Bar appears.
Click on the Format Picture Icon which will open the Format Picture Window.
Go to the Size Tab.
For the Yellow Flower, go to the Scale Section, set Height and Weight to "50%", then click OK.
Move the Image into the desired location on the Flyer.
Step 16: Add New Images
Repeat Steps 14 and 15 to insert the Pink and Red Flowers.
Scale the Pink Flower and the Red Flower to 25%.
Next we will add a Drop Shadow to the Pink Flower.
Step 17: Add Drop Shadow
Select the Pink Flower. Click on the Drop Shadow Icon located on the Formatting Menu Bar.
This in turn opens up the Shadow Style Menu.
Select Shadow Style 4.
Step 18: Drop Shadow Settings
Go back to the Drop Shadow Icon and select Shadow Settings which will bring up the Shadow Settings Menu Bar.
Select the Arrow to the right of the Shadow Color .
Select "Black" from the drop down menu. This gives a Black Shadow.
Also make sure that SemiTransparent Shadow is Highlighted.
Step 19: Nudge Shadow
Nudge the Shadow so that it is not so pronounced. Reselect the Pink Flower.
On the Shadow Settings Menu Bar, notice the 4 Icons in the middle:
Nudge Shadow Down
Nudge Shadow Up
Nudge Shadow Left
Nudge Shadow Right
Select Nudge Shadow Up (4 times), then select Nudge Shadow Left
The Pink Flower with the applied Drop Shadow should look like this:
Repeat Steps 17, 18, and 19 for the Red Flower.
Step 20: Copy & Paste Image
Select the Pink Flower, right click over it and choose Copy from the menu that appears.
Then right click over the Image again and select Paste.
Now you will have 2 Images, both with the same settings.
Step 21: Arrange Images
Move the Images into the desired location on the Flyer. Select the Red Flower.
Go to the Standard Menu Bar and select the Bring to Front Icon to change the order of the Images.
This will bring up the Order Menu. Select Bring to Front.
Step 22: Group Images
Hold down the "Shift" Key while selecting all 3 Images. Then right click over the Images and select Group from the Menu that appears.
This is what the Grouped Image should look like.
