Use Google Drawings to Create Dynamic Text and Clip Art

One of the things that many people miss when making the transition from Microsoft Office to Google Docs are the text and clip art editing tools.  But don't forget that inside Google Docs and Slides, you can insert artwork using Google Drawings.  By using Google Drawings you can:
  • Insert Annotated Screenshots
  • Create Drop Shadow Effects for Text
  • Add Shapes and Flowcharts
  • Create your own Clip Art
  • Insert Annotated Images

To give you a sense of how easy it is, watch this video that explains how to use Drawings to accomplish a few of the tasks listed above.

While making your own effects and clip art may take some time, it is worth it.  Give it a try!
