Default Auto formatting pictures

Hello. I create documents that typically have 20 - 30 pictures in them. I insert the pics from a folder onto a page and then want to automatically format them to be a certain size (always the same) and have a double line border. That's it.... Right now that takes about 8 mouse clicks to accomplish. I'd like to make it one click.... Should i create a "style" to apply or is there another "one click" option for formatting the pictures? I've tried to create a style with no luck...

Thoughts?

Thank-you very much for the reply Paul. I created the table and it does center an inserted picture nicely. I also formatted the table so the border is a double line which is good. However, if I insert a pic that is smaller than the table it does not get enlarged to fill the table. Likewise if I insert a pic that is larger than the table the pic is not reduced in size to fit (only a portion of the pic shows up).... I have the "automatically resize..." option turned off. Seems like there should be some way to auto fit the picture to the table....

Maybe I'll try the macro, though it seems like overkill for what I want to do...

Cheers,

Tim.

Using the macro in the link I posted, the pic will be resized to fit the table cell, regardless of whether the pic is oversized or undersized.

PS: Please keep all the discussion in this thread.
