Now that you’ve learned all about importing pictures, scanned images, and screen clippings into your notes, it’s time to learn how to make them appear in your notes the way that you want.

1. Resizing or Scaling a Picture

Whether you insert a picture from an image file, by using your scanner, or by creating a screen clipping, you can modify its dimensions by resizing or scaling the picture.

Resizing lets you shrink or enlarge the appearance of pictures that contain text or small details that you want to preserve even at a smaller size in your notes.

Scaling can be used for making pictures appear taller or wider so they fit into your notes. Scaling usually distorts the original image, so it works best with pictures containing sketches or drawings, instead of photographs or screen clippings.

To resize a picture on a page without abnormally stretching or squeezing its appearance, do the following:

1.
Click the picture you want to resize. Eight dots (called “handles”) appear around the picture selection (see Figure 1).



Figure 1. The eight dots that appear around a picture when you click to select it are selection handles. You can click and drag some of them to manipulate the selected image in different ways.

2.
Click the round, dot-shaped handle in the lower-right corner of the selected picture and then drag the handle to the left or to the right to make the picture smaller or larger. Release the mouse button when the picture is the size you want.

To scale an image horizontally or vertically, do the following:

1.
Click the picture you want to scale. Eight dots appear around the picture selection.

2.
To scale the image horizontally, click the small, square-shaped handle in the middle of the picture’s right border and then drag the handle to the left or right.

3.
To scale the image vertically, click the small, square-shaped handle in the middle of the picture’s bottom border and then drag the handle up or down.

If you make a mistake, especially when scaling a picture’s dimensions (which can cause the image to appear distorted), remember that you can use the Undo command on the Quick Access Toolbar (or by pressing the Ctrl+Z keyboard shortcut) at any time to undo the damage and then try again.


If a picture is pasted outside of a notes container, you can resize or scale the picture with more precision by using the arrow keys on your keyboard instead of dragging with the mouse.

To resize or scale a picture with more precision, follow these steps:

1.
Make sure the inserted picture is not inside of a notes container. If it is, click to select the picture, press Ctrl+X to cut it, click the page anywhere outside of the notes container, and then press Ctrl+V. When you reselect the picture now, you should only see the eight selection handles around its border, not the gray notes container.

2.
Click to select the picture, right-click it, and then click Resize on the shortcut menu. (If the Resize command is not available on the menu, the picture is still inside of a notes container.)

3.
When the handles around the image have disappeared, look for a white, four-headed arrow to appear over the middle of the selected picture. Use any of the four directional arrow keys on your keyboard to make the picture as small or as large as you want. If you want to resize the picture proportionally without scaling it, you’ll need to press the up or down arrow keys the same number of times as the right or left arrow keys.

4.
If you distort the image too much, press the Esc key and try again. When the picture appears the way you want, press the Enter key to accept the new dimensions.

2. Restoring a Modified Picture to Its Original Size

Changing the appearance of pictures in OneNote by resizing or scaling them does not actually modify the size of the picture file itself.

For example, if you size down an inserted photo to a very small size on your notes page, the original, underlying image file is still saved in its original file size and dimensions. This lets you restore any picture that you’ve modified in OneNote to its full, original glory at any time.

To restore a modified picture, follow these steps:

1.
Right-click a modified (resized or scaled) picture on your notes page.

2.
On the shortcut menu that appears, click Restore to Original Size.

If you don’t want to restore an image on your notes page but want to save the original picture file to your hard drive, you can right-click the picture and then click Save As on the shortcut menu. When you open the saved picture file in Windows Photo Viewer or any other image viewer or editor, it will appear in its original size and appearance, not in the way it may have appeared in OneNote.


Preserving the original dimensions of picture files that you insert into your notes is just another way in which OneNote keeps all of your source information together in one place, while still giving you full control over how such items show up in your notes.
