Working with Pictures

Adding pictures in Word documents can illustrate important information. Learn all about using this feature in this free lesson.

Inserting pictures from your computer

A picture doesn't have to be in the Clip Gallery in order for you to insert it into your document. The Clip Gallery is just an easy place to store clips you want to use again and again.

To insert a picture that is not in the Clip Gallery:

  • Click Insert from the menu bar.
  • Select Picture and From File from the cascading menu. The Insert Picture dialog box opens.
  • Locate and select the file to insert the selected picture into your document.
