All tables and figures should be processed as images.
We suggest that you can convert figures and tables from their original format to TIFF, GIF or JPG format.
You can create your table in MS-Word. Use horizontal lines but no vertical lines. Then go to Table and select Hide Gridlines.
When you finish the representation with your table or figure, move your cursor away from the table then press "PrtSc" on your keyboard.
It allows you to make a copy of the screen image to the Windows clipboard. Now open Microsoft Photo Editor or any image processors (such as PhotoShop, Photo Impact or HySnapDX) and go to Edit, then click Paste as New Image.
To capture and resize your table image, you click the Select button and select the part you want, choose Image and Crop.
Save the file by click File and Save As in TIFF or GIF format without any compression. There are many graphing programs allow you to export your graphics in TIFF or other formats such as *.gif or *.jpg.
No matter how you convert your images, make sure you do not compress your images and nothing was lost during your conversion.
It is good if you can keep the size of image files as small as possible. Once you have done the above, please put the tables or figures back into your document as images by clicking Insert/Picture/From Files in MS-Word.
If you put the text or caption referred to any graphical representations (tables or figures), please do not make the link to them.
We may not able to extract the tables and tables in your document. It is also not necessary to put borders around the outside of your tables and figures. Include a brief explanatory heading and number figures using Arabic numerals.
