How Do I Insert a Picture on My Address Label in MS Word?

By Greg Lindberg

Microsoft Word is a word processing application that is a part of the Microsoft Office software suite. The application allows users to create a variety of documentation, including essays, reports, user guides and manuals. Users also can create address labels to use when sending packages, and there is also a feature to insert a picture into the label. Inserting images into the address labels varies for both the Microsoft Word 2003 and 2007 versions.
