Well not with Vista. You need a Graphic editing application.
The Gimp may be able to do this. (It's free, Open Source but is a bit tricky 
yo get to learn)

Err - why would he <sigh> want to use some INFERIOR Open Sores product? 
Err.  Umm.  He would be better getting quality software that is current and 
not full of bugs.  Err. Umm.  <sigh>

Note that the nymshifter doesn't pay for software, the MS/Adobe kind. He 
claims it's given to him so he tries to put on airs and sneer at Open 
Source to be in the "In Crowd".

You have reading comprehension problems as usual.  I don't pay for Microsoft 
products.  If I want to use Adobe then I will purchase it.  No need to use 
that INFERIOR Open Sores software that is about 10 years behind the times.

GIMP will do that for you quite handily and it doesn't cost an arm and a 
leg.

Yup, that's the GIMP's huge advantage. Otherwise shell out bucks for
Paint Shop Pro (or whatever the heck Corel is calling these days), or
shell out BIG bucks for photoshop.

I think Irfanview (www.irfanview.com) also does this in some fashion.
But that's really it's job, and you might drive yourself nuts trying
to do it this way.

This freeware will probably work well for you. It will do just about 
everything you would want in a photo editing program.

http://paint.net/

For future reference, even though your OS is Vista you'll get better answers 
re: photos if you post to microsoft.public.windowsxp.photos

Open Source has some very good software.
It doesn't come in a big, oversized, pretty box...so you probably don't 
like it.
I use Linux 90% now.
Tons of choices.

Is it possible to insert pictures in an Excel spreadsheet and then in turn mail-merge the pictures along with spreadsheet information into a word document.

So, when you use Excel as a data source for a mail merge, the graphics aren't available.
