Make sure the image is publicly available to all computers that you want Word to open the image.

If you have a server, put it in a commonly available folder.

If that is not available to you, try embedding the picture in the document (that is, do not link it, but paste it right into the document).

If you go to Insert a picture from its file, you should see a drop-down arrow to the right of the Insert button on the dialogue. This reveals the choices; 'Insert', 'Link' to File' and 'Insert and Link'. Use 'Insert' unless you have a special need to use one of the Link options.

adding on: if you are sharing your document, it is best to Insert even though the file gets bigger because whoever you share with may not have access to the images or their path may be different if they do

If you really need your document to look the same on the recipient's computer, use PDF (or XPS, but that's another can of worms).

Your recipient loses the ability to edit the document, but will see the document as you created it even if he/she does not have the fonts or images you used.

HTH,
Dan
