Create Amazing Flyers As You Learn Graphic Design



Step 22: Repeat Transparency

Adjust the Transparency of all Text Boxes to "100%" and remove all Text Box Outlines.

This is what all the Text on the Flyer should look like.

Step 23: Add Images

Here I downloaded the Images of 3 Flowers from www.Clker.com, which is a site where you can download Royalty Free Clipart. Visit www.Public-Domain-Image.com, and OpenClipArt.org as well.

In Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, OpenOffice Draw, Inkscape, Corel Draw and Microsoft Publisher, you are able to freely move an Image anywhere on the canvas. This is also possible in Microsoft Word as long as you first place the Image within a Text Box.

Place a Text Box, then go to the Insert Tab and click on the Picture Icon in the Illustrations Group.

Step 24: Insert From File

This allows you to insert a Picture from File. It opens up the Insert Picture Window, where you can select your file and then click Insert.

Be certain that your images are in a format that will be recognized by Microsoft Word. These Images are saved in PNG (Portable Network Graphics) Format.


Step 25: Scale Image

Once the Yellow Flower has been inserted we will need to scale it.

First select it, right click and select Size from the menu that appears.

In the Scale Section change both Height and Weight to "50%" and click Close.

Place in the desired spot on the flyer so that it looks like this:

Step 27: Insert/Scale Images

Again set the Text Box Transparency to "100%" and remove the Text Box Outline.

Repeat steps to insert the other 2 Flowers.

"Pink Flower" - Scale to "25%".
"Red Flower" - Scale to "20%".


Step 28: Add Drop Shadow

Next we need to add a Drop Shadow to the Pink Flower. Select the Image.

Go to the Ribbon > Format Tab > Picture Styles Group > Picture Effects > Shadow > Outer - "Offset Diagonal Bottom Right" (which is the 1st Shadow Option in the Outer Section).
