    Printing labels with graphics (Windows XP Professional 2)

    Hello everyone!

    I have some labels that I would like to print out using the wonderful label templates that Word provides. I would like to use a picture that I created in photoshop on my label. I'm having trouble getting the entire picture to fit onto each label without showing any white. What is the best way going about this? I have inserted "pics from a file". That doesn't work at all. It won't allow me to move or expland without distorting the pic. Iv also inserted it as an "object" from photoshop, but notice that I lose a lot of detail when I do that. Just wondering if there was a better way. Any help would be appreciated.<img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I will be using the labels for my daughter's soccor team treats. Just to have a little fun.

    The picture looks terrible on here cuz I had to decrease the file size so much but you get the idea. <img src=/S/anigrin.gif border=0 alt=anigrin width=19 height=19>

    Does the attached look like what you want? I used a low-quality .jpg version of your picture to keep file size down.
    I started by creating a blank label document using Tools | Letters and Mailings | Envelopes and Labels...
    I used Insert | Picture | From File... to insert the picture in the first label cell, then deleted the space before it and used the Format | Picture dialog to restore the picture to 100% of its original size.
    I then copied the picture and pasted it into the other labels.

    Hans....I could kiss you! lol! <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/bow.gif border=0 alt=bow width=15 height=15> I spent hours trying to figure out different ways to get that to work.

    Yes, that's it!!! I tried it again on my own. I had never changed the percentages before. I knew I was missing something!

    Thank you so so much!
