Author: mety Nagm Labels::



When you design a Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 form template, you can insert a picture or clip art (clip: A single media file, including art, sound, animation, or movies.), such as a logo or masthead, and then change its size or position. You can also set a picture or clip art as a background in a form template.

When you design a form template, you can include colors or pictures in the background of the form template.
  1. On the View menu, click View Properties.
  2. Click the General tab.
  3. Select the Use a background picture check box.
  4. In the Add a background picture dialog box, select the picture you want, and then click OK.
  5. If you want the image to appear as a watermark, select the Tile horizontally or Tile vertically check box in the View Properties dialog box. Tip To create a watermark effect in a form template, add a background picture that uses low saturation.
  6. Select any additional options that you want.

Insert a picture

  1. Click in the form template where you want to insert a picture.
  2. On the Insert menu, point to Picture, and then click From File.
  3. Click the picture you want to insert.
  4. Click the arrow next to the Insert button, and then click Insert or Link to File.

Insert clip art

  1. Click in the form template where you want to insert clip art.
  2. On the Insert menu, point to Picture, and then click Clip Art.
  3. In the Search for box in the Clip Art task pane, type a word or phrase that describes the clip you want, or type in all or some of the file name of the clip, and then click Go.
  4. Select the clip you want from the search results.
Tip To narrow your search, do any of the following:
  • To limit the search results to a specific collection of clips, in the Search in box, click the collections you want to search.
  • To limit search results to a specific type of media file, in the Results should be box, select the check box next to the types of clips you want to find.

Position a picture relative to text

  1. Right-click the picture, and then click Format Picture on the shortcut menu.
  2. Click the Text Wrapping tab.
  3. Click the text wrapping style you want.

Resize a picture

You can resize pictures by using either a mouse or specific measurements.

Resize a picture by using the mouse

  1. Click the picture you want to resize.
  2. Position the pointer over one of the sizing handles (sizing handle: One of the small circles or squares that appears at the corners and sides of a selected object. You drag these handles to change the size of the object.).
  3. Drag the handle until the object is the shape and size you want.

Resize a picture by using specific measurements

  1. Right-click the picture you want to resize, and then click Format Picture on the shortcut menu.
  2. Click the Size tab.
  3. If you want to ensure that the current proportions stay the same for the picture, select the Maintain proportions check box.
  4. Type the measurements you want in the Height and Width boxes.
alternative text for a picture
You can specify alternative text (alternative text: Used by Web browsers to display text during image downloads for users who have graphics turned off and for users who rely on screen-reading software to convert graphics on the screen to spoken words.) for pictures in a Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 form template. Alternative text appears when a user moves the pointer over a picture, and also helps users with screen readers understand the content of pictures.
  1. Right-click the picture, and then click Format Picture on the shortcut menu.
  2. Click the Text tab.
  3. In the Alternative text box, type the text you want.
    Tip The text can be as long as you want, but some Web browsers might be able to display only a limited number of characters.
Types of media files you can add
By default, Microsoft Clip Organizer can add the following file types:
File TypeExtension
Microsoft Windows Metafile.emf, .wmf
Windows Bitmap.bmp, .dib, .rle
Computer Graphics Metafile.cgm
Graphics Interchange Format (GIF: A graphics file format (.gif extension in Windows) used to display indexed-color graphics on the World Wide Web. It supports up to 256 colors and uses lossless compression, meaning that no image data is lost when the file is compressed.).gif
Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG: A graphics file format (.jpg extension in Microsoft Windows) supported by many Web browsers that was developed for compressing and storing photographic images. It's best used for graphics with many colors, such as scanned photos.).jpg
Portable Network Graphics (PNG: A graphic file format that is supported by some World Wide Web browsers. PNG supports variable transparency of images (alpha channels) and control of image brightness on different computers (gamma correction). PNG files are compressed bitmaps.).png
Macintosh PICT.pct
Tagged Image File Format (Tagged Image File Format (TIFF): A high-resolution, tag-based graphics format. TIFF is used for the universal interchange of digital graphics.).tif
Vector Markup Language.vml
Microsoft Windows Media.avi, .asf, .asx, .rmi, .wma, .wax, .wav
Clip Organizer also supports a number of other common media file types. If you can't import a file into Clip Organizer, it may be because the Setup program for Microsoft Office didn't automatically install the filter for that file type. Run Setup again to review or update the list of supported graphic filters
