Insert pictures in Office 2007

You can insert pictures from different places, such as your computer, clip art, or a webpage, into an Office 2007 document in Word, Excel, or Outlook.

Note: To insert pictures in later versions of Office or in Office for Mac, see Insert pictures.

  1. Click where you want to insert a picture in your document.

  2. On the Insert tab, in the Illustrations group, click Picture.

  3. In the Insert Picture box, browse to the location of the picture on your computer, select the picture, and then click Insert.

    Note: To add multiple pictures, press and hold CTRL while you selecting the pictures, and then click Insert.

    The original picture is embedded in your document. If your picture has a large file size and makes your document too large, you can reduce the size of your document by linking to the picture instead of embedding it. In the Insert Picture dialog box, click the arrow next to Insert, and then click Link to File.

  1. On the Insert tab, in the Illustrations group, click Clip Art.

    When you search for clip art and pictures online, you'll be directed to Bing. You're responsible for respecting copyright, and the license filter in Bing can help you choose which images to use.

  3. In the list of results, click an item to insert it.

  1. Open your document.

  2. From a webpage, right-click the picture you want, and then click Copy or Copy image.

  3. In your document, right-click where you want to insert the picture, and then click Paste.

The From Scanner or Camera option for adding pictures to a document is not available in Word 2007. Instead, you can add pictures from your camera or scanner by downloading the pictures to your computer first and then copying them from your computer into Word.

After you download a picture to your computer, do the following:

  1. On the Insert tab, in the Illustrations group, click Picture.

  2. Locate the picture that you want to add to your document, and then click Insert.
