How to Center a Picture in Word

Documents that have pictures and graphics scattered randomly on a page can look unorganized. You can use the Align and Distribute features to organize the objects in your document.

Distribute or Align an Object

The Align command aligns objects relative to one another, while the Distribute command spaces objects evenly.

  1. Select the objects you want to distribute or align together.
  2. Click the Format tab.
  3. Expand the Arrange group, if necessary.
    Flip or Rotate an Object
  4. Click the Align button.
  5. The Align commands let you align the objects to the left, right, top, or bottom edge, or to the horizontal center or vertical middle.

    The Distribute commands will take three or more selected objects and space them evenly horizontally or vertically.

    You can also toggle the Align to Page or Align to Margin options. Select one of these before selecting an alignment option to align the selected objects to the page borders or margins. Select Align to Selected Objects to return to aligning objects amongst themselves.

  6. Select an alignment or distribution option.
    Flip or Rotate an Object

The selected objects are aligned by the selected setting.
