How to save and Insert an Image from Internet Explorer,
Firefox, Opera or Google Chrome into a MS Word Document

It's nice to add images to your documents and this works for adding images from most internet browsers to your Word documents. The method is similar for all variants of Word - 1997/2003, 2007, 2010 and later.

" "

We are going to save the Google logo image/picture
above and then insert it into an MS Word Document.
The procedure can be used for most images
on a webpage.

NOTE: Be aware that certain usage of webpage images may infringe copyright. This usually occurs when using images for commercial gain.

Also: Animated gif images don't work in MS Word

" "

In Internet Explorer on the Google Search Page :
1. Right Click the Google logo.
2. Left Click "Save Picture As".

Note: The same method
applies if the Google
image is being viewed in
other browsers
such as Firefox
or Chrome.

" "

In the Save Picture Window:
1. Select "Save as type" from
the drop down box - usually
Gif or jpeg (Gif for a small file
size or JPEG for better quality
if the image is a photograph
for example).
2. Give the image a name -
we have called it 
in the "File name" dialog box.

" "

To insert the image into a Word Document:
1. Open MS Word - Word 2003 is shown, but
the method is similar for all versions.
2. Place the cursor at the point in the
document you wish the image to appear.
3. Left Click Insert then Picture then
From File.

" "

In the Insert Picture window:
1. Locate the image file - in this
instance we have saved the
file in "Desktop" as
2. Left Click the file to select it.
3. Click "Insert"

The image is now inserted
into the Word Document
and can be resized
or moved around then
saved along with the rest
of the documents

NOTE: If you don't wish to save the webpage image as this tutorial suggests - simply right click it in the browser and select "copy". You can now paste it from the clipboard wherever you wish!.
