Hour 17. Manipulating Images > Moving an Image

Moving an Image

By default, Word places images inline. (Word documents use two layers, which you can think of as transparency sheets. The document text is on the lower sheet, and images can either be placed on the lower sheet along with the text, in which case they are inline, or on the upper sheet, in which case they are floating.) As you saw in the previous section, you can resize an image when it's inline. However, if you want to move an image, it's much easier if you first set a text-wrapping option, which takes the image out of the text layer. You'll learn more about text-wrapping options in the next section. For now, note that you can choose any text-wrapping option you like before moving the image—you can always change it later.

You can tell when an image is inline because it has black square sizing handles. As soon as you remove it from the text layer, it gets white circle sizing handles.
