i am doing a party invite using word 2007 i had got images via internet to insert into doc but when i insert them the pic inserts fine but it is surrounded by a white box does anyone know of a way to get rid of the box but keep a circle shaped pic inside it.

Try right clicking the picture > Properties and see if there is a transparency option or similar.

I think you will need to open the picture in a graphics editing programme, crop the picture to how you need it, change the background to transparent and save the edited picture to your hard drive. Then import it into Word.

I use Paint Shop Pro - but there are many graphics editors that will do the job.
