NewWrite provides three ways to add graphics
Unlike some other software programs, you need not define a space for graphics in your NewWrite document before you insert them, you can simply paste or draw graphics immediately into your document. However, NewWrite also provides an option to Create Graphic Frame in the Layout menu (User Level 2 and above).
A graphic frame is a placeholder for adding graphics later. Perhaps you plan to add pictures to your document after printing it, or maybe your artist is still busy drawing your graphics while you are working on the text portion of the document. In these situations and others, you may wish to use a graphic frame.
By default, Create Graphic Frame lets you draw a simple unfilled rectangle with Wrap Type set to Wrap Around Rectangle. You can change these attributes with items in the Graphics menu.
