Insert online picture, online video in Word document, it sounds very familiar, right. I have had a tutorial on how to insert pictures into Word and you probably already know how. But what if you already have the photos or videos to insert, what if you don’t have it on your computer, or you can’t download them? Luckily, Word has integrated a feature that can help you insert pictures or videos directly from the web into Word.
Note that only version 2013 or later can be used.

Or you can type in the search section of Bing image search. I will search for “number”, Enter and after a while searching you will see the tool returns a lot of images related to the phrase you searched for, all taken from the internet.
After selecting, click Insert.
Note: If your operating system is Window 7, please update Internet Explorer to version 11 to use this feature.
4: Now you can adjust the image you just inserted to, by dragging the 4 corners of the photo to zoom in or out.
Or click at the image, go to Format, there are many editing options to choose from such as styles, borders, effects, … here I have slightly edited the style the effect of my image already.

Step 4: And here are the results after I’m done. Youtube video has been successfully inserted, you can align the position, size, border, effects, … manually.
