Great Instruction! One question: when I add border (or shadow), it was added to individual image, instead of the combined one. Any solution? Word 2007

No no no. I want to MERGE shapes, not GROUP them. You're using to terms interchangeably. I want to combine two rectangles to make an "L" shape. Or is there another way to make an "L" shape?

place your 2 images in that shape, then highlight them and then copy and paste as picture

I want to put several outline boxes on a picture. I followed all your steps, but the outline boxes did not group and they were not copied and pasted along with the picture. I have been trying to do this for years and years with several different versions of Word and have never found a procedure that allows me to copy any shapes I draw onto pictures.

my 4th attempt after signing up so will keep it short.
Use a screen capture after arranging a page in word and then use the pic of that page et voila!
I just wanted an arrow on my pic pointing at something and could not select both pic and arrow to group them and found that solution, a little different that what is suggested here but it may help too
