    Simple MS Word help?

    For whatever reason, I never really got around to learning Word very well. I'm not helpless just in need of suggestions. I can use Photoshop pretty well, program VB and create websites, etc. But I can't figure an easy way to do this. I'm trying to make a flyer, an advertisment. We need it to be simple and light on the printer cartridge. I would like simple text in the center of the page, but a border of images around it. Like 1 small picture in each of the 4 corners and 1 in the center of the top, left, right, and bottom. 8 Alltogether. Whats the easiest way to accomplish this in either word or frontpage? I would do research for it, but I'm up against a tight deadline. Help is appreciated. Thanks!

    I think the quickest and easist way with Word is to use a table. Then you can place things exactly where you want them. Just hide the borders when you are done.

    Just keep everything inside the page parameters you want and you should be fine as far as printing...

    simplest way is to make the whole page a picture box (pull out the picture toolbar and dock it). Arrange your pictures as you want. Then, create text boxes. Make the text boxes have no color and no border. The text will seem to be floating. Also consider word art.
