Images are like talking texts. They convey the desired meaning or intent in no time. But if they are scattered all over your Microsoft Word 2007 document, they can confuse and disinterest the reader as well. So, the best way to represent these images is by putting them in a definite flow or an image flowchart. These are extremely beneficial, especially when you are putting together technical or a structural content. The flowchart makes it easier for the reader to understand and follow the content. These flowcharts can be used even for informal documents when you wish to streamline the thought process of an individual. Apart from making these flowcharts through smart art on your Windows Vista PC, you can even give them an eye-catching layout. This accentuates the document and manages to engage your target audience in an effective manner.

Adding a flowchart is not a very time consuming or a technical task.

All you need to do is to follow these easy steps:

1. Open the Word document
2. On the “Insert” tab, in the “Illustrations” group, click “SmartArt”
3. In the “Choose a SmartArt Graphic” gallery, click “Process”, and then double-click “Picture Accent Process”
4. To add a picture, in the box you want to add it to, click the “picture” icon, select the picture you want to display in the chart, and then click “Insert”
5. To enter text, you can either:

In case the “Text” pane is not visible, click the “control”

• Click [Text] in the “Text” pane, and then type your text


• Click in a box in the SmartArt graphic, and then type your text

Once the flow is decided, your document is all set to create a lasting impression.
