An image can be inserted into a document from a file, and stored either as part of the document (meaning the original image file is no longer needed), or as a link to the file (meaning the file must always exist in order to display in the document).

Once added to the document, various properties can be modified to change how it is displayed or saved.  For example, the image can be resized, set to flow with the text, etc.

Using Images

1.With the Document displayed, place the cursor in the text where the image should be inserted, right-click and then choose Insert > Image.

2.The file Open dialog will display. Navigate to the location where your image is saved, select it, and click Open.  The full-size image will appear in the document.
Note: The Open dialog often starts with a file type of "Windows Bitmap (.bmp)" selected by default.  You can change the file type, or you can type an asterisk (*) in the File Name field and press enter to force the dialog to show all files.

3.To adjust the display of the image, right-click the image and choose Format. The Image Attributes dialog will open.

4.The attributes are divided into three pages of settings:

Layout and Position - controls the way text flows around the image, its position, and alignment.

Size and Distance - controls the actual size and scale of the image, how much of a gap exists between the image and the surrounding text, and whether it is moveable or resizable.

Saving Options - controls whether the image data is stored as part of the document (independent of the original file) or kept as a separate referenced file.

5.Make your changes and click OK to save.
