Embedding images in your Microsoft Word documents can transform a good document into one that truly stands out. To embed an image into a document, insert the image and save the document. Using the "Format" tab in Microsoft Word, you can edit all elements of a document including size, shape, color and alignment.

  • Click the "Insert" tab and select the "Picture" icon in the "Illustrations" section to add a picture from your files to your document. Navigate to the image you want to insert in your document. Double-click the image to insert it into the document.

  • Format the image using the options available on the "Format" tab. Select the image and use the format tab to recolor, resize, position, add borders, add effects, align, arrange, reshape and crop the image. Click the "Save" icon in the "Quick Access" toolbar to save the document with the image embedded.

  • Click the "Insert" tab and select the "Clip Art" icon in the "Illustrations" section to open the "Clip Art" right side panel to add a "Clip Art" image to your document. Fill in the "Search for" text box, select the collections in the "Search in" field and select media types in the "Results should be" field. Click the "Go" button in the "Clip Art" right side panel. Double click the image you want to insert into your document. Select the image and use the "Format" tab to recolor, resize, position, add borders, add effects, align, arrange, reshape and crop the image. Hold down the "Ctrl" key and press the "S" key to save the document with the image embedded.

  • Go to the website and find the image you want to copy to your Word document. Right-click the image in the web page and select "Copy Image" from the submenu to copy the image from the website. Click in the Word document where you want the image to appear, right-click and select "Paste" to paste the image in your Word document. Select the image and use the "Format" tab to recolor, resize, position, add borders, add effects, align, arrange, reshape and crop the image. Click the "Microsoft" icon and select "Save" to save the document with the image embedded.

  • Click the "Insert" tab, select "Shapes" and select the shape you want to insert into your document from the "Shapes" gallery. Click the upper-left corner where you want to position the shape and drag down and right to size the shape. Format the shape using the "Drawing Tools" options that appear when you select the shape. They include editing the "Shape Styles," "Shadow Effects," "3-D Effects," "Size," "Arrangement" and "Position."
