I couldn't fit 13 Deck Chairs on the page, so I've split your group into two pages. Let me know if this is to your liking or if you would rather each family have their own separate page.

I'm assuming this is to make the Name Decoations with the pictures inside each letter? If I can remember the steps correctly (as I can no longer open my Word program, trial over), Once you have your letters on the page, put your cursor on the letter, right click, then select from the drop down menu, "Format Word Art" or "Format" (not sure exactly what it says other than format.
A window will pop up, then just look around on that till you find something that indicates "Fill with photo or picture". It's pretty easy to figure out from there. The only thing I haven't figured out is how to move the picture around so the right parts show through the letters. If anyone else here knows the "HOW TO" for that, can you post it here?

Some fonts have shaded areas. The Mickey font is one of those. In Word Art, it seems only the shaded portion of the letters is filled, not the inner portion. Try a font without the shading and see if it works for you. Also, once the letter is filled I have never found a way to move the picture around.

Forgive my ignorance, but I'm confused here - are you talking about the name graphics such as those back on page 39 of this thread (Aaron, Jacob and Crystal (?) with Aladdin characters inside of the letters)? I'd love to be able to make those for my family.

Is Microsfot Word Art a separate program? In Microsoft Word, there is a WordArt function available on the drawing toolbar, but I suspect you're talking about a separate program here. How do you get a free trial on that?

And finally, how do you download additional fonts, like the Disney fint? And once downloaded, does it have to be parked somewhere specific in order to be accessible to Photimpact Pro, or Microsoft Word Art, or whatever?

Yes, I'm talking about Microsoft word. And like you said, The Word Art Function that is in there.

For fonts..

Hope that's not too confusing.


I made this one using PhotoImpact. I removed the background of the letters with the magic wand tool and then I got the pictures I wanted and placed them behind the letters so it looks like they are inside.
In word, I haven't figured out how to move them around either.

Doesn't work for me at all - when I right click and than select "format Word Art", I get a dialog box with several different tabs (Colors and Lines, Size, Layout, etc.). But I don't see an option for "Fill with photo or picture", or anything similar to that. There are two tabs that are ghosted which I cannot select - one called Picture and one called Text Box. I'm guessing the option I'm looking for is on the Picture tab, but I cannot figure out why that tab is ghosted for me.

When you click on WordArt it should being up several styles of lettering to pick from. Mine shows about 25..5X5 boxes that says WordArt in different shapes colors etc. Click the 1st wordstyle on the top left...shows black lettering. Then when you go to format it click the fill tab..then it should offer picture as an option. That's how I just got it to work! HTH!
