    Okay guys I had to type a poem that describes me and all that and just typed it in a word processor. Now i want to add images to it, but if for example i use openoffice to add an image, when i add it, it takes up too many lines and makes two pages. What i want to do is add or insert or paste three images, each nice and big and on the corners of the paper, while the poem is centered. If anybody knows how to do this please help me. And im on a slow internet connection so i dont want to download any program cause it'll take hours.

    well I've never used openoffice, but I know that in any other word processor that supports images you can resize and image by either clicking it to reveal the size handles in the corners or putting the cursor right in front of the image and pressing backspace to reveal the size handles. grab one of the handles and drag it inwards to resize the image.

    Whenever I do stuff like that i just have Office show the picture toolbar, and then set text wrapping on the picture to put the picture behind text and then it lets you put the picture anywhere you want without affecting your text.
