Chapter 6. Working with Graphics > Inserting and Modifying a Picture

Inserting and Modifying a Picture

You can insert scanned photographs or pictures created in almost any program into a Word document. Pointing to Picture on the Insert menu displays a submenu that you can use to specify the source of the picture, as follows:


  • To insert a picture from the clip art collection that comes with Word, you click the Clip Art command on the Picture submenu or click the Insert Clip Art button on the Drawing toolbar, which opens the Clip Art task pane. The Microsoft Office System includes hundreds of professionally designed pieces of clip art that you can use in your documents. For example, you can insert clip art pictures of scenic backgrounds, maps, buildings, or people.

  • To insert a picture from a file on your hard disk, removable disk, or network, you use the From File command on the Picture submenu.

  • If you have a scanner connected to the computer that you are using, you can scan and insert a picture using the From Scanner command. You can also use this command to insert a picture from a digital camera that’s connected to the computer.
