I either see this or get asked (occasionally) about using Word shapes for creating images and designs in Word.

Yes, Word shapes are good for certain things…simple diagrams, hierarchy’s, that kind of thing; but, for anything more complex – and certainly where books and especially Kindle books are concerned – don’t use them.

Remember, Amazon are trying to provide the best experience for both author and reader, but unfortunately, Word shapes just don’t cut it.

Watch the short video below to see why:

In the video, you saw about the resampling of the image. If this is baffling to you, or you want to learn more, then check out my Working With Images video training course.
