Adding Pictures and Graphics
A graphic is cropped to just one line high
You might find that after you insert a picture or other graphic, it’s severely cropped, so
that only the bottom of the picture appears. This happens when an in-line graphic is
placed in a paragraph that has fixed line spacing. You can ix the problem—and show
the entire picture—in either of two ways.
● Change the text wrapping to an option other than In Line With Text.
● Change the line spacing for the paragraph to a setting other than Exactly.
For the simplest placement options, select a graphic and, on the Page Layout tab, click
Position. A gallery appears, and Live Preview shows the effect of each gallery option as you
hover the mouse pointer over it. Options in the Position gallery let you place a graphic at
any margin or centered between the margins.
To more precisely control the positioning of a picture or graphic in Word, you use the Wrap
Text option. You can get to Wrap Text by selecting the object and then clicking the Page
Layout tab; Wrap Text is in the Arrange group. (You’ll also find Wrap Text in the Arrange
group on the Format tab under Picture Tools or Drawing Tools.) Alternatively, right-click an
object to display a menu that includes Wrap Text.
