How do I insert a photo into Word?

Hi
I am using Microsoft Word Starter 2010 and have a problem with inserting pictures. I click on Insert, Picture, and am able to browse in my Pictures file. When I click on a photo from my files, only a narrow strip of the bottom of the photo appears in the Word document. However, if I use Works, the picture appears correctly. Does anyone know what I need to adjust? Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. I just entered my question into Google and found this answer:

The symptom of seeing only the bottom of the picture indicates that
the paragraph in which you're inserting it is set to an "exact" line
spacing. In the Format Paragraph dialog, change the spacing from
"exact" to "at least" to allow the line space to expand to the full
height of the inserted picture.

One click and everything works great.

The Starter edition does not have all of the features of the full edition, see here:

Thanks for the reply Mike. I checked the information on the link you enclosed but couldn't find any info that helped. Actually, I think I was able to include photos at one time but I have this problem with over-active fingers that adjust things they shouldn't.

Does it happen with all images and are the images quite large? If so try resizing the picture first, to make it about the same size as the final image. You can do this in 'Paint' which you will already have on your computer - make sure you save it as a different name after resizing so you don't over-write the original.

Thanks for sharing your answer. I just want to say that you may need to turn off the image compression in Word. That is something that I met when I am inserting image in Word. Good luck.
