I'm writing a report and a lot of the images are fairly big, and when an image is too big to fit on a page, it starts a whole new page. I was wondering if it is possible to have word split images automatically over page breaks so you don't have big white space everywhere.

I think so... what version of word are you using? What operating system? – wizlog Nov 28 '11 at 20:23
Word 2010, Windows 7 – sooprise Nov 28 '11 at 20:34

Not as far as I know.

You can scale the images in Word to ensure they fit on a single page, but the default it to import the image at 1:1.

If the image is truly too big to fit on a single page then you'll need to split it in a paint package (Paint.NET for example) and insert it in sections.

Ah, I guess this is the answer I have to live with. The problem with manually splitting images is that if I add things later on, the splitting would have to be adjusted. Anyway, thanks for the help :) – sooprise Nov 28 '11 at 20:24
@sooprise - I could be wrong :) However, I am assuming that you've tried various things before asking here. – ChrisF Nov 28 '11 at 20:26
