Before you work on the mail merge topics presented in the Session 4.2 Visual Overview,
Joel asks you to insert a photograph into the newsletter.
Because a photograph is also a graphic object, all of the techniques you have learned
for manipulating and editing graphics such as clip art also can be applied to photographs.
Joel asks you to insert a photo of an apple in the paragraph below the heading “Preventing
Type II Diabetes.” Recall from Tutorial 1 that you can do this using the Picture button, in
the Illustrations group on the Insert tab.
To insert a photograph:
1. If you took a break after the previous session, make sure Word is running and that
the Health Newsletter file is open with the document in Print Layout view and
with the nonprinting characters and rulers displayed.
2. In the first paragraph after the heading “Preventing Type II Diabetes,” click at
the beginning of the line that starts “each day…”.
3. Click the Insert tab, and then click the Picture button in the Illustrations group to
open the Insert Picture dialog box.
4. Insert the photo file named Apple.jpg from the Word4\Tutorial folder included
with your Data Files. The photo of a red apple is inserted in the paragraph as an
inline graphic, and the Picture Tools Format tab appears on the Ribbon.
The apple photograph needs to be rotated so that the apple appears right side up.
Rotating a Photo
Digital photographs are sometimes saved with the image turned on its side, so when you
insert the photo into a document it appears sideways. You can rotate a photo by dragging
the Rotation handle that appears on the photo’s border when the photo is selected, or
you can use the Rotate button in the Arrange group on the Picture Tools Format tab.
To rotate a photograph:
1. Position the mouse pointer over the green Rotation handle at the top of the photo.
The mouse pointer changes to
2. Drag the mouse pointer down and to the right, around the photo. The pointer
changes to and a copy of the photo rotates to the right. The actual photo
remains in its original position until you release the mouse pointer. See
