Add Photos to Your Pages Documents

You can choose from two methods of adding a picture within your Pages document: as a floating object, meaning that you can place the image in a particular spot and it doesn’t move, even if you make changes to the text; and as an inline object, which flows with the surrounding text as you make layout changes.

  • Add a floating object. Drag an image file from a Finder window and place it at the spot you want within your document. Alternatively, you can click the Media button on the toolbar and click Photos, navigate to the location where the file is saved, and drag the image thumbnail to the spot you want in the document.

    Note that a floating object (such as a shape or image) can be sent to the background, where text will not wrap around it. To bring a background object back as a regular floating object, click the object to select it and click Arrange→Bring Background Objects to Front.

  • Add an inline object. Hold down the Command key as you drag an image file from a Finder window and place it where you want within your document. You can also click the Media toolbar button and click Photos to display the Media Browser.

    Navigate to the location where the file is saved, hold down the Command key, and drag the image thumbnail to the spot where you want it in the document.
