How to Import a Group of Images Into a Word Document


Frequent users of Microsoft Word are typically aware of many of the capabilities of the program. It is more than just a word processing application. You can add tables, objects, images and many more types of files to a Word document. Unfortunately, the process for adding an image can be tedious, particularly if you need to add multiple images to one document. Fortunately, you can import a group of images into a Word document at one time, thereby greatly expediting the document creation process.

  • Launch Microsoft Word. If you have already created a document into which you wish to add your group of pictures, double-click that document to open it.

  • Click your mouse at the point in the document where you want to insert the images.

  • Click the "Insert" tab at the top of the window.

  • Click the "Picture" icon in the "Illustrations" section on the ribbon at the top of the window. This opens the "Insert Picture" window.

  • Browse to the folder containing the group of images you wish to insert into your Word document.

  • Hold down the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard as you click each image to be inserted into the document. If you wish to select every file in the folder, press "Ctrl" and "A."

  • Click "Insert" at the bottom of the "Insert Picture" window to import your selected group of images into the Word document.

Tips & Warnings

  • Word imports images at their native size and resolution. If you need to decrease the size of an image to fit it into your document, right-click the picture, and then click "Size and Position." Enter values into the "Height" and "Width" sections, and then click "OK."
  • Images can also be adjusted, less precisely, by clicking and dragging one of the circles on the box surrounding the image.
