Default Resizing pictures

Hi


when I use word 2007 I can easily resize pictures(and see the changes while I'm doing so) but when I try to do the same thing with Word 2010 or 2016 I can't view the changes while making them. Is there any solution?

Hi,

Just to clarify, which method are you using in Word 2010 or Word 2016 to resize your images?

If you use the resize handles located on the corners of the graphic then the image should resize as you click and drag the resize handles.

If you use the Size group located on the Picture Tools > Format tab then it should also change the image size as you increase or decrease the size using the height and width fields.

The behaviour you're seeing in Word 2007 exists in the later versions also. As you drag a corner or side of the image, a ghosted version of it should appear overlying the original, this showing the resizing effects as you make them. If you're not seeing that, perhaps your graphics driver needs updating. Check, too, whether you have disabled hardware graphics acceleration (see under File|Options|Advanced>Display).
