Technology is rapidly changing, and Office does its best to keep up with that hurried pace. You can easily insert images that you scan on a scanner or take with a digital camera. Office makes inserting pictures from these devices as easy as inserting graphics from a file.
For example, suppose that you want to scan a child's drawing to insert into a letter to relatives. Simply select Insert, Picture, From Scanner or Camera. Word displays a scanner collection dialog box or digital camera dialog box from which you can control your scanner or digital camera's transfer of the picture to your document.
