- Click the picture you want to change. A border with handles (small squares) appears around the image.
- Click Format from the menu bar and select Format Picture.
- From the Size tab, check the box labeled Lock aspect ratio if you want the program to automatically adjust the image in proportion to a change in either width or height.
Set the scale and or size of the image.
Click a picture to select it. Then, drag one of the handles (small boxes) on a side to adjust the width / height without maintaining the aspect ratio.
To resize an image while maintaining its aspect ratio (proportions), drag any of the handles on the corners.
Set the baseline. The baseline of an image determines its vertical position on a line. By default, the baseline of an image aligns with the baseline of the text in the current paragraph.
Click the baseline (dotted line) or, if the baseline is at the bottom of an image, click to the left or right of the handle. The cursor will change as shown in the example. Drag the baseline to its new position.
You can also use the mouse to directly adjust the size of an image or set its baseline.

- From the Web tab, enter alternate Web text.
- Click OK to apply the picture format changes and close the Format Picture dialog. Or, click Apply to apply the format changes and leave the Format Picture window open. After you have finished, you may click Edit from the menu bar and select Undo to undo your changes.
