Default Inserting / formatting multiple photos into Word doc.

Hello Team,

I have to frequently insert 10-15 photos into a word doc and would love to find a solution to automatically resize, position, and apply a border. As it stands now, I either drag over / insert picture - "wrap text - front of text" - right click to re size, then select / drag the picture into position on my document - add line border. Repeat 15 times.....

Would a macro work here? I've messed with macros a few times, but find them hard to set up.

Anyone know of any software applications that may do this for me?

My goal is to select up to X number of photos from the home folder they are in and bring them over to my document. Once inserted into my document, I would like to see them automatically resize and format themselves as well as position themselves into a spot on my document.

Any help would be fantastic.

Thanks all.

Hi Jeremiahts,

If you insert a table into your document with column widths and row heights set to the size you want the pictures to fit within, then any pictures you insert into the table will be constrained to those dimernsions.
