Inserting Clip Art and Pictures


Lesson 16
Images are a great way to liven up a document, and Word offers a couple of ways of inserting images. There are built-in Clip Art images for just about every topic, so you may be able to find a perfect Clip Art image for your document. If you have a more specific image in mind, you can insert a picture from a file.
In this lesson, you will learn how to search for and insert Clip Art, how to insert an image from a file, and how to change the text wrapping settings for your images.

Changing the Text Wrapping Settings

When you insert Clip Art or a picture from a file, you may notice that it's difficult to move it exactly where you want. That's because the text wrapping for that image is set to In Line with Text. You'll need to change the text wrapping setting if you want to move the image freely, or if you just want the text to wrap around the image in a more natural way.

To Wrap Text Around an Image:

  1. Select the image. The Format tab will appear.
  2. Click the Format tab.
  3. Click the Wrap Text command in the Arrange group.
  4. Select the desired menu option. The text will adjust based on the option you have selected.

To Use a Pre-Defined Text Wrapping Setting:

  1. Click the Position command, to the left of the Wrap Text command. A drop-down menu will appear.
  2. From the drop-down menu, select the desired image position.
