You may change the appearance of a shape or text by modifying its fill or by incorporating effects to it, such as shadows, glows, reflections, soft edges, bevels, and three-dimensional (3-D) rotations. A fill is a colour, pattern, texture, picture, or gradient placed on the inside of a silhouette. A gradient is a gradual progression of colors and colors, usually from one color to a different colour, or from 1 colour to a different shade of the identical colour. Changing the fill color of a contour affects only the interior or front of the contour. Should you add a change to a shape, such as a shadow, and want a different color for this effect, you need to change the color of the shadow individually from the fill colour. A 3-D effect adds thickness to a shape. You are able to add an integrated mix of 3-D effects to your form, or you can add individual results. It is possible to add mixtures of personal effects to your shape in these programs: Excel, Outlook, Word, and PowerPoint.
