How to insert graphics into a Word document

Applications

In order to place into Word a picture, a piece of clip art or an enlarged section of text, the steps to follow are:

(1)    Place your cursor near where you “might” want the item to go.

(2)    Go to the Word menu at the top of the screen and  open Insert and select Picture.

(3)    At Picture, select as appropriate, let’s say From File.

The File can be file of photographs from which you could select the picture of the person involved in the document.

The File could have Desktop selected and there you could have placed some item appropriate to the moment.

Or you could have selected Clip Art. Select as appropriate and click on Insert.

(4)   You also could select at Insert Text Box, which would allow  you to place text within the box.

Now with the item – whether Text, Photograph or Clip Art – click on the inserted item and then go to Format in the Word Menu. Click on Picture. Then click on Layout and finally click on Tight or otherwise as desired.
