Have you ever wanted to add a picture to an email in Outlook? It’s actually really easy to do! Here’s how:

First, open a new email and position your cursor where you want the picture to go. Next, click on “Insert” in the ribbon above and select “Pictures”. From there, you can choose any picture from any folder on your computer and insert it into the email.

By default, the picture is inserted “in line with text,” which means it moves with the text as you add or delete it. However, Outlook gives you lots of options for wrapping text around the picture. To access these options, click on “Options” and then “Mail” and “Editor Options”. From there, select the “Advanced” tab and scroll down to the “Cut, copy, and paste” section. You’ll see an option for “Insert/paste picture as.” Click on the drop-down list to see all the different wrapping options.

For example, you can choose “Behind text” so that the picture floats on its own layer behind the text and you can type over the picture. Or you can select “In front of text” so the picture floats on its own layer in front of the text and you can type text over the graphic but not see it through the picture. There are several other options as well, so choose the one that fits your needs.

Once you’ve selected your wrapping option, click “OK” to save changes and then “OK” again. Now you can insert your picture and see that it stays in place as you add or delete text.

By following these simple steps, you can easily insert pictures in Outlook and make your emails more engaging and visually appealing.
