    How do I put text next to a picture in MS Word?

    Simple enough, say you insert a picture from file, and it takes up the upper left portion of the screen. Now the cursor is on the lower right side of the picture. I would like to type to the right starting at the top right of the picture so I type picture and text side by side like a webpage.

    thanks

    Probably the easiest way to do this is a table. While word can format pretty much anything in any way, I have found that if you want precision, tables are the best thing to use.
    Alternatively, you could do format -> wrap around text (or something like that, my software isn't in English), but that generally means that you need to readjust a lot.

    Right-click on the picture once inserted and you can chose from a number of formatting options.

    Thank you Mr. genius for using the kiss method to explain it to simple minded people like me
    I've heard many various ways which have all left me confused before, but yours is beautifully simple & easy to understand
