While it is possible to resize images in Microsoft Word 2007 so that they stretch across a page, it is not possible to span an image across multiple pages. To insert an image into a Word 2007 document so that it stretches across two pages, you must edit the picture in an image editor so that it is divided into two images, rather than one.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the picture you want to insert into your Word document in an image editor, such as GIMP or Adobe Photoshop. Use the selection tool to cut out a 1700-by-2000 pixel or 8.5-by-11 inch portion of the image.

  2. 2

    Copy the selected portion, and then paste it into to a blank document of equal size. Save the new image.

  3. 3

    Return to the original image. Invert the selection so that the remaining portion of the image is selected.

  4. 4

    Copy the rest of the image and paste it into a new document. Save the image.

  5. 5

    Open Microsoft Word 2007. Select a blank area on the page and click the "Insert" tab. Click the "Picture" button in the Illustrations group.

  6. 6

    Scroll through your list of files until you find the first half of the image you want to insert onto the page. Select the file, and then click "Open."

  7. 7

    Click "Blank Page" in the Pages group on the "Insert" tab. Click "Picture," and then select from your files the second half of the image you want to insert into the Word document. Click "Open" to paste the image into the page.
