Illustrating Image Alignment

This document is designed to help illustrate the different image alignment options available through the Picture Properties dialog box. For all examples, the insertion point was at the very beginning of the paragraph. As you will notice when reviewing the various options, some look almost identical to other selections (e.g., Top and Texttop). For more information about adjusting alignment, refer to About the Picture Properties Dialog Box.

NOTE: The alien graphic below is from About.com.
