How can I place multiple pictures on a page in Word?

Postby TWVyZWRpdGg » Thu, 30 Jul 2009 02:54:01 GMT

Used to using Publisher -- but forced to use Word to create a manuscript for 
a friend for self-publishing... Mostly images, and I can't figure out how to 
place them accurately on a page. They seem to 'drop' in randomly almost and I 
can't position them precisely relative to each other. I do understand about 
how to position them re wrapping w/text but that isn't the issue here.

Thanks!

What version of Word are you using.
From your describption is sounds that the default settign for the paste of 
images is set to a floating layout, if you are pasting anywhere near another 
floating image then you can get the reaction you describe.
Personally I would change the default so the image comes in as 
InLineWithText and insert the images into cells of a borderless table? 
Remember that you can merge serveral cells in the table to get different 
layouts for different sizes of images, this can work very well.
You can change the default paste setting in Tools, Options, Edit, 
Insert/Paste Pictures as: options. This option is only in 2003 and later.
If you must have floating images, get used to the options in the Format 
Picture, Layout, Advanced dialog. These can help you control the positioning 
of the images.
Hope this helps

thanks, Dean -- I'll give the borderless table idea a try; that makes some 
kind of sense. I really miss being able to precisely place images .. am using 
Word 2003.

I just tried your suggestion -- but, don't understand how to use the merging 
cells feature to place, say, 2 images side by side but where Image #1 might 
be placed partway next to Image #2, rather than strictly side by side (does 
that make sense? I think I'm trying to say offsetting them ..)?? I don't see 
how to make that happen with a table?

In the past when I have needed two (or more) images - say - overlapping, I 
tend to use another application, Photshop/Powerpoint to get the images as I 
want them, then save them as an individual image file, then insert that into 
Word instead of messing around in Word.
All the best.

Hi All,
I need some information about placing the same data in multiple places in an 
MS Word Document. For instance, the way we place the data in a single place 
using a Book mark, how can i handle to place the same data in multiple 
places. as we can not create multiple book marks with the same name, i am 
finding it difficult to handle this programatically.
Early response will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

3.How to place multiples on one page, not take full sheet for ea

Did you use a Catalog (or in Word XP, a Directory) type mailmerge 
maindocument?  It also sounds like you put a <<Next Record>> field in the 
first column which would be the reason that it skipped the first person in 
your data sheet.

You would also need to make sure that the paragraphs in the mail merge main 
document are not formatted with Page break before.

4.How do I place a different picture watermark on each text page

5.2 pictures on same page, can not place the second one

Hi,

I don't want I'm doing wrong. I have one page with a picture = object and
text around to the right. That's perfect.

Now I want to place a second picture on the left side bellow the picture and
text, but I cannot. What happens is one of these:

- the second picture comes to the top of the page and pushes the text down
- the picture comes on the next page

This is one page in a document of 150 pages that will be formatted a couples
of time, so I don't want to use columns just for this page.

Thanks for all help
Best regards
Georg
