How to Drag a Picture Into Place With MS Word

Save

Sometimes it is necessary for a Microsoft Word document to include more than words. Generally, Microsoft Word is thought of as a program for creating text documents. However, Word includes several features to enhance your documents and make them more visually appealing. You can insert pictures into your Word documents from several sources, including images from Microsoft clip art gallery and pictures stored on your computer. Once you insert the picture into your document, you can format the picture and drag it to the desired location.

Insert Clip Art

  • Open the Microsoft Word document in which you want to add a picture.

  • Click the "Insert" tab and click "Clip Art" from the "Illustrations" group.

  • Type a word or series of words describing the clip art that you want to add to your document in the "Search For" text box. If you want to expand your search on the Web, check the box labeled "Include Office.com Content." If you want to limit your results, select "Audio," "Photographs," "Illustrations" or "Videos" from the "Results Should Be" section.

  • Click the "Go" button to begin the search.

  • Click the clip art that you want to insert in your document.

  • Drag the corners of the clip art to resize the image. If you want to keep the center of the clip art in the same location, press the "Ctrl" key while you drag the image's corners.

  • Click the clip art and click the "Format" tab. The "Format" tab is located under the "Picture Tools." Click the "Wrap Text" drop-down box and click "Through."

  • Drag the clip art to the desired location. The contents of the document will adjust and text will wrap around the clip art.

  • Drag the corners of the picture to resize the image. If you want to keep the center of the picture in the same location, press the "Ctrl" key while you drag the image's corners.

  • Click the picture and click the "Format" tab. The "Format" tab is located under the "Picture Tools." Click the "Wrap Text" drop-down box and click "Through."
