1.3.5 Pictures


Pictures in the Word Binary File format can be either inline or floating. An inline picture is represented by a character whose Unicode value is 0x0001 and has sprmCFSpec applied with a value of 1 and sprmCPicLocation applied to specify the location of the picture data. A floating picture is represented by an anchor character with a Unicode value of 0x0008 with sprmCFSpec applied with a value of 1. In addition, floating pictures are referenced by a PlcfSpa structure which contains additional data about the picture. A floating picture can appear anywhere on the same page as its anchor. The document author can choose to have the floating picture rearrange the text in various ways or to leave the text as is.
