How to resize background images:
Resizing images isn't as hard as you may think. All you need is some imaging software, some images and you're ready to go. For imaging software there are lots of free programs available but one of the most widely used is Gimp, a program much like Photoshop but entirely free. I use Microsoft Digital Imaging Studio myself. Here's how to resize images in a few easy steps:
1. Open the program
2. From your menu bar import into program the image you want to resize.
3. Now that the image is opened go to the menu options in your toolbar and select format. Here you select the option "resize image". You can input the exact size you want for your image.
4. Save the image.
There you go, that was easy wasn't it?

How to make your own borders:
Tired of the same old borders? Ever wanted to make your own borders? Sometimes you want a particular image and don't have the time to go searching for it. Making your own personalized image borders is easy and I'm going to show you just how using Microsoft Publisher.
1. Open Microsoft Publisher and open a new page.
2. From your menu bar at the top click insert and choose any image you like.
3. Now that the image is opened you will need to resize it. With your mouse grab the image by any corner and pull or push it until it's the size you want.
4. Now right click the image and copy it then paste it on the same page. Do this as many times as you need to line up the images horizontally on the page.
5. An easy way to align the images horizontally it is to select them all at once by dragging your mouse over all of them. Now, while they are still selected, go to the top of the menu to the button "tools", "format", "align", "horizontally".
6. Publisher will distribute all the images horizontally across the top of the page.
7. Now at the top of the menu in the same "tools", "format", select "group".
8. Publisher will now group all the images together.
9. Right click the grouped image and click "save". Select the save location and the image format for example "jpeg".
If you go to the location where you saved your image and click on it, you will see your beautiful homemade border! Well done!
There you go, that was easy wasn't it?

Frames highlight a feature or topic that you want to make stand out from the rest. As a picture is worth a thousand words, a frame will attract viewers and draw them to read what you're highlighting without them even wanting to.
Here's an example:
"One rainy Sunday, when I was in the third grade I picked up a book to look at the pictures and discovered that even though I did not want to I was reading. I have been a reader ever since."
Go ahead and try it. You'll see that a picture is really worth a thousand words!
