Positioning Images in Outlook 2007

I was checking tweets this morning and found this one from @yangwong:

Will buy a drink for anyone who can tell me how to have two images side by side in Outlook 2007 with no “Microsoft” gap in between.

It is possible to do this, it’s just not obvious. Making the images touch requires adjusting the Text Wrapping properties of both pictures. Here are the specific steps.

  1. Insert both images.
  2. Right click the first image and select Text Wrapping > Behind Text.
  3. Right click the second image and select Text Wrapping > In Front of Text
  4. Drag the second image and position it up against or partially over the first image.

Voilà. The images should be side by side without a gap.
