Working with Images in Microsoft Word

We'll assume that you already know how to add random text and insert images into your document.

1. Select the image you want to adjust

2. You can resize the image by clicking and dragging the corners of the image

3. You can move the image by clicking and dragging the image to a different location

4. Select the "Layout Options" icon

The layout options icon is a quick way to adjust how you want your image to look on your document. Click the "See more.." link on the bottom right to see even more options.

5. For even more options, with the image selected, use the "Shape Format" and "Picture Format" tabs to do even more!

"Shape Format" lets you adjust the container image sits in.

"Picture Format" lets you adjust the image itself.

These tabs give you even more tools to adjust how your image looks and is presented in your document. Interesting in learning even more info about this? Click here to learn more about managing images in a document.
