As is true for Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and many other programs, Visio lets you import pictures of various types into a drawing. You may want to add a picture of a specific object, a piece of clip art or a general background image—either way, you can import almost any type of image or picture into Visio.

In this exercise, you’ll import several pictures to add value to and enhance the appearance of your drawing.


  1. On the Insert tab, in the Illustrations group, click the Picture button.

    Note

    KEYBOARD SHORTCUT Press Alt+N and then press P to insert a picture.

  2. Click International Office.jpg, and then click Open. (This image originated in the Microsoft Office Clip Art gallery.)

  3. Drag the inserted photo to the bottom center of the page.

  4. Drag an International Division shape from the Department stencil and drop it on the right face of the building.

  6. In the Office.com Clip Art box, type EU flag and then press Enter. Several flag images appear.

  7. Double-click one of the flag images to add it to your drawing.

  8. Reduce the size of the flag image, and then position it in the upper-left corner of the building image. Your drawing now includes an iconic representation of various headquarters’ functions at the top of the page, and images that represent the international division office at the bottom.

Note

CLEAN UP Save your changes to the Corporate Diagram drawing, but leave it open if you are continuing with the next exercise.

Once inserted into your drawing, an image becomes a shape, much like the group did in the preceding exercise. Consequently, you can use any of the various tools in Visio to alter or adjust the shape’s properties.

As you completed the steps in this exercise, you may have noticed that when you selected an image, the Picture Tools tool tab set appeared. You can use the buttons on the Format tool tab to alter the properties of an image.

Tip

Like most of the other applications in the Microsoft Office suite, you can insert more than just pictures into a Visio drawing. On the Insert tab, click Object, and you will find two dozen or more document and object types (the actual list varies from computer to computer depending which Office products you have installed).
