Default Word Table inserting Pictures

Hi all
At work we have a word template document with tables that we insert clients pictures into, at present we have sample pictures that the user right clicks and chooses change picture and selects the picture required, the problem is when the new picture is imported it comes out huge on the page and them messes up the whole layout of the document, is there a way to constrain the image to always go no larger than the sample picture?

A useful trick if you have multiple images to insert and you want to constrain them all to fit within a given size is to create & copy a single-cell table with a fixed height and width to wherever you want the images to go, then insert them into that. Any picture inserted into it will have its dimensions constrained to fit the space available, at the correct aspect ratio for the picture.

Any picture inserted into a table cell that has a fixed height and width will have its dimensions constrained to fit the space available, at the correct aspect ratio for the picture. To set the fixed:
• row height, use Table Tools>Layout>Properties>Row>Specify Height>Exactly.
• column width, first uncheck the 'automatically resize to fit contents' option under Table Tools>Layout>Properties>Table>Options. Then set the preferred column width under Table Tools>Layout>Properties>Columns.
You might also want to set the cell margins to 0 all round. It's also a good idea to format the cell paragraph with 0 before/after spacing.

For a macro to automate the insertion of multiple pictures, see: https://www.msofficeforums.com/drawi...ument-all.html
