Inserted Picture Size



  • 1. inserting screenshots- Word 97 vs. Word 2000
    I use ctrl-printscreen and then ctrl-V to document my work both at work in Word 2000 and at home in Word 97. Both computers run Windows XP. This works perfectly at work under Word 2000; the pictures come out after the last text line, and then I hit Enter to get a new line, and it looks great. But at home under Word 97, it's totally different; large white spaces appear between the last text and the screenshots, screenshots go all the way to the bottom of the page, and the margins get messed up so the text sometimes goes all the way to the right edge of the page! I vaguely remember a Word guru at a previous employer helping me through the process of getting pictures to appear in the right place, but that's been 5 years or so, and I can't figure out how to do it now. Help! Thanks. Jim Ford Laguna Hills, CA U.S.A.

Inserted Picture Size

Postby Q2Fyb2x5bg » Fri, 16 Mar 2007 09:16:31 GMT

Two employees are inserting the same image into Word from the clipboard. One 
employee's picture takes up the entire page, the other employee's picture 
takes up about two-thirds of the page in Word. 

I would like the second employee's image to be displayed as an entire page. 
I have compared their settings under Tools>Options but both copies of Word 
seem to have the exact same page margins and settings.

If anyone has a suggestion, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Go to Tools > Options. Click 'Web Options' on the General tab. Go to the 
Pictures tab. The default size of an imported graphic is the graphic 
resolution divided by the display resolution shown on this tab. (eg if the 
original is 10cm at 300 dpi, and Word is set to 96dpi, the picture will be 
displayed as 31.25cm (300 / 96 x 10).

You can adjust these settings; or more simply, right-click the graphic, 
select format, and set the size you want.

Thanks for your response. I checked the Web Options>Pictures tab, and both 
employees' Word is set to Screen size 800 x 600, and Pixels per inch 96. 
Shouldn't they display the image the same way in Word?

One would expect so. But it's hardly an issue, since re-sizing is so easy.

The reason it's creating a problem for us is that we are using a document 
imaging program, and we want to copy documents from this program into Word, 
using the clipboard. It's something that we will need to do frequently. The 
documents are several pages long, so each page copied into Word needs to be

1.Word Insert Picture Size is a narrow box

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Processor: intel

I am trying to insert a JPEG into a word doc.

If I create a blank doc, and insert, and set layout to in-line, it works normally.

I am editting a document from someone else, when I insert the same picture, only a narrow slot at the bottom is visible, the black outline of the picture is correctly size, but overlays the text above rather than being positioned in-line.

I also tried inserting clip art with the same result. I also tried inserting the image as a PDF file, same result.

It's as if the rectangle defining the size of the image is the bottom 10% rather than the entire 100% image.

And quite annoying too.


2.Default size for ALL pictures when inserting multiple pictures in

I have an End User that needs to insert 50 - 100 photos into Word. The photos 
are all very large in size and can only get one photo per page. She is 
wanting them all to be automatically sized to a certain size upon inserting 
into the document so she does not have to resize each one individually. Doing 
so is taking to much time.  Is there a setting so that all pictures that are 
inserted are automatically sized the same so that she can get two pictures 
per page? 
Thank You,

3.Size of inserted pictures / screen dumps in Word

Quite often I insert screen shots in my Word (2003) documents. I would like 
to know if it's possible to change the default scaling of these "pictures" to 
say 60% in stead of the default 100%. Or maybe it's possible to select all 
inserted pictures and format (resize) them in one step?
