If your organization uses the Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010 suite of office productivity applications, you have no doubt encountered the Ribbon.

Introduced in the 2007, the Ribbon interface took the menus and toolbars of the top page navigation and reorganized them into tabs organized by activity types. This reorganization meant that you could have more of the commands and tools at your fingertips quicker, but it also meant having to learn where things live now. This article will discuss techniques for making the Ribbon more effective for your work.

These tools make it easier to add great pictures and images to everything from donor appeal postcards to your organization’s annual reports.
