Hi, I'm Tracy Prentiss of Montague, Massachusetts, and I'm going to show you how to make a newsletter in Microsoft Word 2007. Microsoft makes many templates available for use in Word to get you jump started on a document. To access them go to your office menu button and select new. This will bring up the new document dialog box. Scroll down the list at the left until you find the type of document you want to create. In this instance we are going to make a newsletter. The different newsletter designs that are available will be displayed and there are many to choose from. Choose a design appropriate for what you are doing. I'm going to make a family Christmas newsletter and click download. A new document based on that template will be created for you. The document will contain standard text, standard pictures and placeholders for things that you want to add to it. You'll want to replace the pictures with your own. If you click on a picture and press your delete key you can get rid of it and then you can use the insert picture command to insert a picture of your own family, locate the picture where it's stored on your disc drive, select it in the insert picture dialog box and click on insert. Chances are your picture may not be the right size but when you insert a picture the format tab appears on the ribbon and it has height and width settings. You can click the little up and down arrows to resize your picture until it fits. Once you like the size of the picture go on and change other things. In the case of my newsletter I like the size of my picture but I can no longer read the text so I am going to highlight it and on the home tab there is a button that allows me to change my font color, so now the heading shows up on top of the picture of my family reunion. Use the standard texts to give you guidance and what to use for contents, highlight the text that's there, delete it and type in your own information and in this case your own news about what happened to your family this year. When you have finished putting in all your information, save it, print it, and send out your newsletters. That's how to make a newsletter in Microsoft Word 2007.
