Pasting photos in Office XP

  blewog 09:28 06 Oct 2004

Having upgraded to Office XP I find that if I paste photos (jpeg)onto either Word or Publisher the result is that the photo is blank. Only a box where the photo has been pasted in shown. If I paste some clipart onto the same document the actual photo that has been pasted previously shows up correctly.

I have removed Office XP and reinstalled Office 2000 and I have no problems.

what windows operating system are you using?

Whilst it does not solve your problem, I have Office XP and Windows XP-Pro, and have no difficulties in pasting a jpg photo into a Word document. It shows up immediately.

In Word, Tools/Options, View tab. Check that Picture Placeholders is NOT ticked.

Activate the Picture toolbar. Click on insert picture, browse to your jpeg and press 'Insert' button
