This looks like the image is being inserted inline (as one giant character in the paragraph) and the paragraph has line spacing set to "Exactly". Change the line spacing to something else e.g "At Least" and this should fix it self. This one is harder to guess what's going wrong. Make sure you position the caret in the correct place before pasting. Also you ...

The answer here was actually fairly simple, if you run your own webserver. If you do not, you'll have to point your host to this post.

Apparently the new Open XML Document ...
