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 1.78inch height and 3.17inch 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;

4: Click Run button to run the VBA

The VBA code on resizing images:

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)
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

Note: In shp.Height = InchesToPoints(1.78 ) and shp.Width = InchesToPoints(3.17) 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.
