Picture fills can look great and distracting at the same time — it all depends upon the type of picture you use for the fill — and also what you fill with a picture. If you end up using a picture as a fill for your chart’s Plot Area, then you must put in plenty of thought before you decide to do so. Why? Because you don’t want to crowd your chart — and so while you can use a picture, it’s best to use one that’s muted and does not attract too much attention.
