The Microsoft Word word processing program allows you to insert PDF images into a Word document by dragging the PDF file that contains the image onto the document. If you are working with Microsoft Word and wish to insert a PDF image into your Word document, you can do so in a few simple steps.

Double-click the Microsoft Word application icon to launch the application and start a new blank document. If you want to insert the PDF images into an existing document, click the "File" tab and select the "Open..." option. Then, locate the file on the computer's hard drive, highlight it and click the "Open" button.

Click the point in the document where you would like to insert the PDF image to place the mouse cursor there. Locate the PDF file that contains the image you want to insert into the Word document on the computer's hard drive. Click the PDF file icon and drag the PDF file onto the Word document.

Click the arrows in the "Select Page" window to select the page of the PDF file that contains the image you want to insert into the Word document. Click the "Insert" button to insert the PDF image into the Word document.

Repeat Steps two and three for any other PDF images you want to insert into the Word document.
