Default Inserting pictures without resizing

Hello,

I would like to insert a picture into my header and footer (logo etc)
and have the ability to move it around.

A picture by itself is not movable in Word, so I first create a
text-area from the drawing options and then insert a picture into it.

Problem is, the picture is always resized! I have a regular 72 DPI
picture for the web and I would like it to be imported/inserted at
EXACTLY its original size.

How can I do this?

Thanks

g'Day,

Whether you need it in the Header/Footer, or on the Page...
InsertPictureFrom File...
and insert your prepared Picture.

Now Right-Click the (inserted) Picture, and choose 'Format Picture'.

On the Layout tab, DO change the Wrapping style to something other
that 'In line with text' - for now I suggest 'Tight',
AND
Set the Horizontal alignment to suit
Use the Size tab to set the size
(Use the Colors and Lines tab to set a border)
Click OK
OR
Click OK
Drag the centre of the Picture to set the Position
Drag the corners to set the size
(If you drag the sides you can Flatten/Fatten the Picture).

While the Picture is selected (i.e. you can see the 'handles') you can
adjust the Position with the Arrow keys, and fine adjust with
CTRL+Arrow key(s).

A picture by itself *is* movable in Word, but you have to change the text
wrapping style from In Line With Text to some other style.

Thanks Pat, I know how to resize a picture, but when I insert and then
resize by dragging the mouse, the resolution is all botched up. It is
not suitable for text images (logos and such).

So I would like to be able to import EXACTLY the size and dimensions of
the original image. Surely this should be possible?

Thanks, that's very useful. I can move it around with the layout set to
Tight. Now if only I could get my image, without resizing in Word, to
be original dimensions.

What's the size now? If you double-click the image and go to the layout tab,
what's the % showing? Change it to 100%. It should only resize if it's
restricted by a table cell or the size of the page or the area into which
you paste it.

Hi E.P.,

What graphic format are you using and how
are you inserting the picture into Word?

If the graphic does not contain a Pixel Per Inch (PPI)
setting embedded in the graphic (JPEG can store that
info, GIFs, for example do not and default to 96PPI)
the Word uses the value in Tools=Options=General=Web Options
as the Pixel per Inch value to determine the
display size of the graphics.

Hello-

You actually answered your own question in your original post.

Regardless of file format, 72 ppi (although you stated 'dpi') is ample for
web display, but totally inadequate for print purposes... unless the image
consists strictly of large areas of solid color (logos, not photos for
example) and is _not_ being stretched (much) in the doc where it is included
for printing. If both conditions are met, some low-res gifs and pngs may
print OK. Otherwise there just isn't enough image data. What you are seeing
in Word is what you will get on paper.

For printing, you need a second copy of the image defined in higher
resolution and appropriate print dimensions, and saved in tiff (or, less
desirably, jpg) format.

Regards |:)

Well I have my original logo in size 72 DPI only (DPI is what
Macromedia Fireworks and Adobe Photoshop call it, not PPI) which
includes some images. How can I make it bigger? When I make it bigger
it becomes blurry.
