Hour 16. Inserting Images, Drawing Shape... > Inserting Images from Your Disk or N...

Inserting Images from Your Disk or Network

If the image you want to insert in your document is sitting in a folder on your computer or network, chances are you can use it. Word can handle image files in all sorts of formats, including (but not limited to) BMP, EMF, EPS, PNG, GIF, JPG, PCX, PICT, PING, TIFF, and WMF. (If these formats don't mean anything to you, don't worry about it. Word will most likely be able to use your image file without a problem.) The image may be a digital photograph, a scanned image, or another piece of digital artwork. You may have received it as an attachment to an e-mail message or downloaded it from the Web. Regardless of how it arrived at your doorstep, after it's saved to your own disk or your network, you can probably insert it in your Word document.

It's a good idea to check the copyright of any image that you haven't created yourself to make sure that you have permission to use it.
