Line up your pictures in Word 2007

Aligning pictures in a document is easy with Word 2007's picture tools. Mary Ann Richardson explains how it works.

When you need to line up two or more pictures in a document, you don't have to fumble with the mouse. Let Word 2007 do the work for you. For example, say you want to have two clip art images line up along their bottom borders. After inserting them in your document, follow these steps:

  1. Select the picture on the left.
  2. Under Picture Tools, in the Format tab's Arrange group, click Text Wrapping.
  3. Click the In Front Of Text option.
  4. Select the picture on the right.
  5. In the Arrange group of the Format tab, click Text Wrapping.
  6. Click the In Front Of Text option.
  7. Press the Shift Key and then click each picture with the mouse.
  8. Release the Shift Key.
  9. In the Arrange group of the Format tab, click the Align button.
  10. Select Align Bottom.
