The author explains how computer-generated graphics can be integrated into text to produce effective and persuasive technical reports and presentations. Integrating graphics into text allows the graphics to be proportioned so that the illustration appears on the same page with the text describing the graphics. When text and graphics appear on the same page, the reader follows the explanation of the graphics; when a reader has to turn to the end of the report to see the graphics, the reader loses the coherence of the report. To integrate graphics and text, information about graphics terminology as well as details about word-processing and graphics programs and printers are needed. The author discusses these topics, as well as preparing slide presentations from graphics
