How to resize all / multiple images in Word?

When we copy or import images from Internet or other files, the size of the images may be various. Everyone knows how to resize pictures one by one, but if we want to resize them to the same size all at once, how can we do? This tutorial will show you several methods of resizing images.

Note: With this method, you cannot resize multiple pictures all at once. You need to resize them one by one until all pictures are resized.


Resize images with VBA

With the following VBA code, you can resize pictures to your ideal size. You can get it done as follow:

In this example, we resize the picture size to 1.78 inches height and 3.17 inches width.

1. Please select a picture you want to change the size;

2. Press Alt+F11 to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window;

3. Click Module from Insert tab, copy and paste the following VBA code into the Module window;

VBA code: Resize one image to specific size:

Sub ResizePics()
Dim shp As Word.Shape
Dim ishp As Word.InlineShape
If Word.Selection.Type <> wdSelectionInlineShape And _
Word.Selection.Type <> wdSelectionShape Then
Exit Sub
End If
If Word.Selection.Type = wdSelectionInlineShape Then
Set ishp = Word.Selection.Range.InlineShapes(1)
ishp.LockAspectRatio = False
ishp.Height = InchesToPoints(1.78)
ishp.Width = InchesToPoints(3.17)
Else
If Word.Selection.Type = wdSelectionShape Then
Set shp = Word.Selection.ShapeRange(1)
shp.LockAspectRatio = False
shp.Height = InchesToPoints(1.78)
shp.Width = InchesToPoints(3.17)
End If
End If
End Sub

4. Click Run button or F5 key to run the VBA code, and the selected image has been resized to your need size.

Note:  In the above code,  In shp.Height = InchesToPoints(1.78 ) and shp.Width = InchesToPoints(3.17) are the height and width of the picture,  you can change the size to meet your need.

With this VBA code, you also cannot resize all or multiple picture at once. You need to go back and forth between the Word document and the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window to select the picture and apply the code. That’s too time-consuming.

    If you save your document as .docx, then you will be able to open it as zip-archive. There will be media folder with all images (mine had PNG images). You can then use programs like IrfanView, XnViewMP, FastStone Viewer to perform batch transformations like resize, reduce color depth, etc. Pack your images back into zip and rename it to docx.

    For example, in my docx full of screenshots I needed to reduce number of colors to 8, which is enough for documentation purposes. After processing my 10MB doc became 1.8MB doc, so savings can be significant. Always save your original docx in case you want to restore pictures after too much degradation/processing etc.

    I need to resize all images in a word document to the same width but not deform the images. so scale them to the same width. Is this possible through a macro?

    Does anyone know if an image placeholder/dropper/automatic sizing feature is available in Windows 365? No idea where to look or find assistance on this since the Microsoft chat help was SO unhelpful. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
