What is the best way to put pictures into a word document?
Posted on 2008-11-11
There seems to be more than 1 way of putting pictures in word. I am using word 2003 and making docs that need to be compatible with 2000 up to current release word.
My pictures will typically be annotated with text boxes, incidently - putting text boxed in line with text seems to change the way they behave as a drawing object (who'd have guessed!?), and I typically need to have arrows overlapping the pictures.
Primary objective is to have everything stay together... picture text box and arrows and move together if the text shrinks or expands...
My preference is to insert from a jpg and put image in-line with text, others are telling me to use canvas...
Basically I'm advocating in-line-with-text but want to be sure of my reasons...
Please provide some sound technical reasons why various methods are preferred or to be avoided.
