2. On the Insert menu, point to Picture, and then click From Scanner or Camera. 3. If you have more than one device attached to your computer, under Device select the device you want to use. 4. Do one of the following: Click Web Quality to use a lower resolution or if you intend for your document to be viewed on screen. Click Print Quality to use a higher resolution or if you intend for your document to be printed. 5. Do one of the following: Click Insert if you're using a scanner and you want to use predefined settings to scan your picture. Click Custom Insert if you're using a scanner and you want to change image settings, or if you're using a camera. Then follow the instructions that come with the device you're using. 6. When the image appears in the document, make any changes you want. You can use the tools on the Picture toolbar to crop the picture, adjust its brightness, contrast, and color, and make other adjustments. The Insert button might be unavailable with some scanners because the scanner software doesn't support an automatic scan. Use the Custom Insert button instead. Formatting with Tables You can quickly create a simple table by using the Insert Table command or you can use the Draw Table tool to quickly create a more complex table—for example, one that contains cells of different heights or a varying number of columns per row. Using Draw Table is similar to drawing a rectangle on graph paper— first, draw a line from one corner of the table to the corner diagonally opposite in order to define the boundary of the entire table, and then draw the column and row lines inside. You can also use tables to perform some of the tasks you might use a spreadsheet for. For example, you can sort table entries in alphabetical, numeric, or date order. You can also total a row or column of numbers in a table, as well as perform other calculations, such as averaging. For more information about these advanced functions of tables, ask the Office Assistant.
To insert and format a table For this worksheet or test, insert a table to format the space for student answers. 1. Place your pointer in the text where you want to insert the table. 2. From the Table menu, point to Insert and then click Table. The Insert Table dialog box appears. 3. Select a number of columns and rows and AutoFit features. For example, you might only want 2 columns, one for test or worksheet questions, and one for answers. If you have 10 questions, you might want at least 10 rows. 4. Enter a question into each row. You can enter text, pictures, or even other tables into the cells in this table. Use the arrow keys to move around in the table. 5. You can resize the rows and columns of the table. To adjust the size of the table, move the pointer over the vertical line that separates the columns in your table and double-click to automatically fit the text. Do the same to the vertical line on the right side of the column. Or, you can resize the columns by selecting Cell Height and Width from the Table menu and then selecting Autofit.
