Word processing


Insert picture option in microsoft word

Insert picture from file

In a word processing package, you can insert the following images:

  • shape outlines
  • images from other files
  • symbols
  • Clipart
  • diagrams


Most Word Processing packages will allow you to insert Clipart images. These are free from copyright and can be used in your DiDA project. However, don't get into a habit of using Clipart. Examiners have probably seen these images hundreds of times before.
