Adding borders to your images prevents photos with white backgrounds from ending up in your document. It’s also an easy way to give them a little extra flair. Here’s how to put borders around pictures in Microsoft Word.
To add a border around your picture, open Word on your Windows 1
Once selected, the “Image Format” tab will appear. Click on it and choose a style from the “Picture Styles” gallery.
You can click the down arrow next to the displayed styles to expand the gallery.
To select a frame you like, click on it. The style is then applied to the image. For example, if we select the Metal frame style, the image will look like this:
You can also adjust the border of your image. Click on the picture and in the “Picture Styles” group of the “Picture Format” tab, select “Picture Border”.
A drop-down menu will appear. Here you can choose from different colors for your frame. You can also apply a border thickness (the width of the border) and dashes (the line style of the border).
To remove the border around an image, click on the photo and select “Restore Image” in the “Adjust” group of the “Image Format” tab.
This will remove any borders, styles, and effects applied to the image.
While it is certainly not known for its image editing suite, Microsoft Word offers a decent library of basic tools to help you adjust your images, such as removing a background from an image and placing text over an image. Play with Word’s feature set to see what you can do!
