    jpg pictures (Word 2002)

    I have a page of text with a .jpg picture(s) inserted (either in the middle of a paragraph or at the margin with the text beside it). Is it possible to delete the .jpg but still have a blank space for where that picture should be (with the text exactly where it was when the .jpg was still on the page). The reason for removing the picture(s) is because e-mailing the report with the picture(s) will be too large. We want to show the recipient that there is a blank space for the picture.
    Thanks.

    Place an empty text box or rectangle (from the Drawing toolbar) on top of the picture. Specify that the text must float around it. Then delete the picture.

    I have tried to do as you suggested (text must float around it?). It sort of works. Can you give me specific (detailed) steps. thanks.

    Start with a setting:
    Select Tools | Options...
    Activate the General tab.
    Make sure that the 'Automatically create drawing canvas when inserting AutoShapes' check box is OFF.
    Click OK.

    Now, go to a page with a picture.
    Activate the Drawing toolbar.
    Click on the Text Box or on the Rectangle button.
    Draw a rectangle on the document that roughly covers the picture.
    With the text box/rectangle still selected, point to Format | Text Box or Format | AutoShape.
    Activate the Layout tab.
    Click the Square option.
    Click OK.
    From the Drawing toolbar, select Drawing | Order | Send Backward.
    The picture should now be visible again. Delete it.
