Pictures in Line With Text?

Pictures in Line With Text?

Have you ever noticed that when you insert a picture in MS Word, the program automatically puts it in the line with the text? Like this…

I don’t know about you, but most of the time, I much prefer that the text wrap around the picture and really integrate it into the document. Like this…

To make that happen, I usually have to go through and change the formatting for each picture. What a pain! I mean, if I’m always going to change the picture formatting, wouldn’t it just be more efficient to have Word format the picture to my preferences from the get go?

Yeah, I agree, so that’s what I have for you today.

To change the way Word formats a picture upon insertion, you’ll need to go to the Options window. (Tools menu, Options choice).

Once in the Options window, you need the Edit tab.

You’re looking for the “Insert/paste picture as” field. Use the arrow to pull down the list and choose the formatting you prefer.

Click OK.

And that’s it!

Next time you insert a picture, you should find that it is automatically formatted to meet your standards from the very beginning. It can’t get any better than that!
