When I insert a JPEG into a word document I sometimes want to manipulate it. I have to select -Format - picture -layout- In front of Text-OK
This is then more usable for sizing and positioning. What I would like to know is the format the picture is then in? Is it a word metafile (WMF) ?
Whatever the format I would like to find a batch conversion program to speed up the process when I have a lot of insertions to do. Any advice welcome.

as far as i know this will still be on as a JPEG, the formatting you are talking about is how Word will display it. This is simply telling word how you want it shown in regard to any written work.

Thanks for that. In that case I need a batch process to format each insertion still. I find that a macro will not accept any mouse selection clicks.

James, I have VBA code that automatically inserts and sizes .jpeg photo/images in to Excel, you may be able to adapt it for Word.

A few points:

1. Which version are you using?

2. Is "In front of" the same as "Float Over"?

3. Is your question actually "is it possible to change the default wrapping property of inserted graphics?"?

If the answer to #3 specifically is "Yes", try this article (method 2):

EDIT: if that isn't applicable, one thing you can at least do is display the Picture toolbar. Then when you select an inserted pic, setting the wrapping is much easier than the whole "Format - picture -layout- In front of Text- OK" rigmarole.
