the problem is this property is exposed through the shape object not an inlineshape

so if your pictures are inlineshapes and you don't mind converting them to shapeobjects you could do something like

Dim iShape As InlineShape
Dim oShape As Shape
Dim lHort As Double
  For Each iShape In ThisDocument.InlineShapes
    Set oShape = iShape.ConvertToShape
    lHort = oShape.Anchor.Information(wdHorizontalPositionRelativeToPage)
    MsgBox lHort
  Next

that will display the horizontal anchor

if you want to keep the inlineshapes [because they can wrap text around them] then maybe someone else has an idea
