Working with Pictures

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

Moving clips

Once you have inserted a graphic into your document, you can reposition it until it is in the appropriate location.

By default, when a picture is imported into Word, it is aligned to the left margin. However, just as you would with text, you can change the alignment so the graphic is right-aligned or centered. You can also drag the image anywhere on the page.

To move a clip:

  • Select the clip.
  • Use your mouse to drag a selected clip to any position on the page.
  • The I-beam turns into a white pointer with a little box under it as you move the picture.


  • Use the Alignment buttons on the Formatting toolbar.
