Try right click> Format Shape (Picture)

Choose Fill
Tick "Tile as Texture"
Adjust Scale X and scale Y (keep them the same value as each other) till the picture fills the shape as closely as possible.

I have just repeated the steps which worked as advised last week but now when I do it when I tick the tile as texture box multiple pics fill the shape instead of the one original scaled to size, I don't think I am doing anything different

The picture you are adding is larger than the shape.

Try starting with a shape smaller than the picture.

Set it up as above and then untick tile and enlarge the shape.

At best though tiling is a cludge.
