Word allows you to insert photos in the text and move the image in the document. The software allows you to move images so that they do not interfere with the formatting of the text and are arranged in an organized way. In some situations, the action of moving the images with the mouse may not solve the formatting of the document. For this, it is possible to use resources such as grouping elements, editing the layout of images, changing alignments and other editing possibilities. See below how to use Word settings to move images.
