Inserting a picture from your computer
5 Click the down-arrow on the Insert button and do one of the
following:
Click Insert to store a copy of the picture file in your Word
document.
Click Link To File to insert only a link that connects the Word
document to the picture file. This keeps your document file as
small as possible. If you edit the picture file, you can then update
the Word document to show the revised picture. However, if you
share the document with others, they’ll see an error message
indicating a broken link instead of the picture.
Click Insert And Link to store a copy of the picture file in your
Word document and link it to the original picture file. This
method lets you update modified pictures like the Link To File
method, but you can share the file with others without breaking
any links to the original.

TIP Word 2013 can insert files saved in the following formats:
.emf, .emz, .wmf, .wmz, .jpg, .jpeg, .jfif, .jpe, .png, .bmp, .dib, .rle,
.gif, .pcz, .tif, .tiff, .wpg, .cgm, .eps, .pct, .pict, and .cdr. To filter the
display of files in the Insert Picture dialog box to a specific format (and
make it easier to find the file you want), click the drop-down list to the
right of the File Name box and select that format.
TRY ThIs If your document contains pictures that were
inserted by using the Link To File option or the Insert And Link
option, you can edit those links. To do this, first click the File tab to
display the Backstage view and then click the Info tab. On the right side
of the Info page, in the Related Documents section, click Edit Links To
Files. (Your document must be saved at least once to make this link
appear.) In the Links dialog box, you can change the source file of a
linked picture or break the link and store a copy of the file in the
document.
