Steps

  1. 1
    The first thing you need to do is to select a picture, which I have already done and have hidden away somewhere.
    We're going to go to Insert at the top and click on Picture, then click on From File because we've already saved it.

    We can select some other filters as well, such as Mosaic.
    You can change the pixel amount which will make it into a mosaic style. Now you can see it looks like a lot of pixels. We can undo this by pressing Command + Z again.

    The next option is color, this is where we can change the amount of colors in the images to give it more hue or upgraded shading.

    The next option is transparency.
    This is a very useful option if you want to add text over the image. You could put the picture in the background and allow the text to come to the foreground.

    We can also flip it vertically.
    Now he looks like he's going to drop down on a school children's picnic.

    We can also wrap some text around this.
    So, we created a document about flying frogs and we've inserted a picture. Now we want to insert some text. We have some text here that I've pasted in using Command + V and now we want to wrap the text around.

    We're going to select it, then increase the font size to make it more readable.
    Now we want to wrap it around the photo. We're going to move the picture by clicking on it and dragging it, you can also change the size by clicking and dragging on the green boxes in the corners and sides of the image. Now we have found the place we wanted, we can use the buttons up on the top where my mouse is to wrap the image around the text.

    The text will move to accommodate the image.
    So, if you place the image on top of the text and press the wrap text button, the text will move to form itself around the image. It has become an image surrounded by text, sort of like a newspaper. This is very useful for creating research documents or anything where you want to connect images and written text. Now you can see it looks very professional. We have a title, we have some information about the frog and we also have the image to support the text.
