    I may be wrong, but I never knew you could resize images in microsoft word. I just use Paint (it should come with your computer) and go from there.

    Are you on a Public computer? How did someone steal Microsoft word? Maybe someone else can help you, I'm not too familular with Word, other than writing essays.

    Where did you go to get 100/100? If you go to "Image", then to "stretch/skew"...it will say horizontal and verticle with ___% in each one. 100% would be normal size, 50% would be half, and 150% would be stretching it another 1/2.

    Go to www.download.com Do a search under "resize". They have a free utility called "resize your picture" that will make it easy.

    If you have xp there should be a built in editor, but a free photo editor will work just as well.

    I always recommend Irfanview for simple image editing stuff. It's free and has a really small learning curve. www.irfanview.com
