Adding Effects in an Excel Chart

Adding Effects in Excel Charts



You can make your chart elements more visually striking by customizing them with special effects. For most chart elements, you can add one or more effects, including a shadow, glow, or bevel.


In all cases, however, make sure that the effects you apply do not make the element more difficult to read or to decipher, and that the effects you use do not distract the reader from the chart itself.
