Video: Inserting a Picture control

If I want to include an image in my form, I can simply insert it as I would in any other Word document. But when I want my user to be able to paste an image or insert an image in a form then I'll use this control which is the Picture Content Control. Using this control in a form allows a user to insert a picture here as easily as they would on a PowerPoint slide. So I'm simply going to click here in the table where it says Use this picture in the donor directory, and I'm going to click the Picture Content Control and it will drop in here real neatly.

Inserting a Picture control

If I want to include an image in my form, I can simply insert it as I would in any other Word document. But when I want my user to be able to paste an image or insert an image in a form then I'll use this control which is the Picture Content Control. Using this control in a form allows a user to insert a picture here as easily as they would on a PowerPoint slide. So I'm simply going to click here in the table where it says Use this picture in the donor directory, and I'm going to click the Picture Content Control and it will drop in here real neatly.

Notice that it already has a button for a placeholder. Let's go ahead and go into Design mode and Properties and you'll notice that there just aren't all that many properties allowed here. For example, there's no automatic setting for black and white picture or anything like that. We want make sure this Content Control can't be deleted. So very easy to set up: my Title, my Tag. If I drop back out of Design mode then you'll see that this Picture Control has "click here to insert picture". So from the user's point of view when they're ready to use this they simply click and it will take them automatically to their Pictures Library.

We actually want to go back to our Exercises folder, because I included a photo right here in the Chapter 2 folder that I can insert. Notice that it's neatly sized, the Content Control resizes to fit the picture, and it looks really good and it was easy for the user to do very simple. They can then go in and format it if they wish, because after all they're in Microsoft Word. So if they wanted that black and white picture, or if they wanted to touch it up like a professional studio, they could. I'm not going to give them instructions to do that, but some of them will find it anyway.

The Picture Content Control is very, very easy for you to use. So feel free to make it easy for your users to insert the picture that they would like to have used in things like donor directories, telephone lists, any photo gallery in your workplace, and so on.
