Admittedly, tech things that should be simple for me have in the past turned into frustrations. So you may be more intuitive than I am when it comes to photo editing.
Here’s the easiest way I’ve found to add a photo to your newsletter template:
Step 1: single-click on an existing photo. You will notice that blue dots will appear on the four corners of the photo, and little blue squares will appear at the midway points on each of the 4 sides. These can be moved in order to resize your picture. You’ll also see a green dot above the top of the picture. That green dot can be clicked on if you have a need to rotate the picture.
Step 2: Click on the “Insert” tab, located next to the Home tab in the upper left corner of Word.
Step 3: Select “picture”. Then you’ll be able to choose a picture from your My Pictures files or wherever you keep your pictures.
Step 4: Single click on the picture of your choice. It will then appear in your newsletter, but probably not in exactly the place or size of your choice.
Step 5: Resize the new picture by dragging its corners (using those blue dots referenced above). Place the picture where you want it by holding down the left mouse button and dragging it to the right place. You can also delete the picture you’re replacing by selecting it with one click of your mouse and then pressing the ‘delete’ button on your keyboard. And as always, save your document/newsletter.
There are other ways of accomplishing the same thing, but I’ve found this to be the easiest.
To your success!
