How to Position or Drag Pictures Anywhere on MS Word?

Are you having trouble positioning images on MS Word? If yes, follow the steps below on how to freely drag pictures anywhere on your document.

Positioning Pictures on MS Word

This guide is applicable to Microsoft Word 2007 users. If you are using 2010 version, the procedure is still the same. The only difference is the user interface is changed. If you are using 2013 which is the latest one, kindly search for a guide online about “how to wrap text around a picture”. I haven’t purchased yet the 2013 version that’s why I won’t be able to confirm if the process is same with 2007.

Step 1: Open your document in MS Word.

Step 2: Click the picture you want to position in the document.

Step 3: Go to Format tab then select “Text Wrapping”

By default, when you click on a picture, the Format tab (Picture Tools) will open up automatically in the toolbar. All you need to do is find Text Wrapping option.

Step 4: Choose Behind Text.

Step 5: Drag the picture in the corner or anywhere you want to place it.

Alternative Option

There’s another way of positioning images on Microsoft Word. There’s an option called “Position” in Format tab as well. It is located beside Text Wrapping. You may also use that feature to position images on your document with text wrapping.
