Default Cannot remove line around picture

Hi there,



I put a picture on a word document and then put a text box around it so that i could write text next to picture, but now i cannot remove the line (frame) around my picture.

Please help. Thank you.

Just in case there are others looking to solve this, I'll put the solution up!

Different Solutions, for different cases

1st
  • Click once on the picture to select it
  • On the toolbars or ribbon look for the 'Borders' control
  • If it's highlighted, click it to remove the border

If that didn't solve it for you

2nd
  • Right-click the picture
  • cChoose 'Format Picture'
  • Go to the 'Colors and Lines' tab
  • In the Line section
  • Change the 'Color:' choice to 'No Colour'

And if THAT doesnt solve it for you, then the image must have had a border BEFORE being pasted in word, so

3rd
  • Click once on the picture to select it
  • You should now see (2003) a floating toolbar called 'Picture' (2007) have some new tabs in the ribbon to play with
  • Look for the 'Crop' symbol (it's like two corners, overlapping - if you hover the mouse over the icons, you'll find it in the end)
  • Choose this tool
  • Now, when you grab the picture handles you will find that, instead of resizing the image, it cuts bits off
  • Remove the frame!
  • (The only problem here is, Word isn't the most accurate cropping tool in the business - so, if you need a bit more finesse, I suggest you move it into a graphics editor at this stage!)
