MOVE and RE-SIZE a PICTURE
1.Click and Drag a photo with the mouse: Notice the mouse arrow has a tiny square attached called a “lasso”. This means something is attached to the mouse and when you let go it will drop it at that point.
2. Re-size a picture: You can resize using the white handles around the picture frame; and you can use the Size options on the Picture Tools ribbon
1.The tiny symbol next to the picture is the “Layout Options” tool. This allows you to choose how the picture aligns within the text of your document.
2.Click through the options and observe what happens as each is selected.
- There is no right or wrong answer when using Layout Options; it is simply up to you and your document design choices.
