Paste picture from clipboard then resize width?

Hi everyone.. is there a simple way to paste a picture in a word document that already has inlineshapes and set the size of the width?.. here is the code that I am using to paste but can't figure out how to alter the width of the image being pasted??


Selection.PasteAndFormat (wdPasteDefault) 'Pastes in the content 

RE: Paste picture from clipboard then resize width?

Try something based on:


Sub Demo()
With Selection
  .PasteAndFormat (wdPasteDefault) 'Pastes in the content
  .Start = .Start - 1 'move the start back one postion to include the image
  If .InlineShapes.Count = 1 Then
    'resize the image
    With .InlineShapes(1)
      .Width = InchesToPoints(3)
      .Height = InchesToPoints(2)
      .LockAspectRatio = True
    End With
  End If
End With
End Sub
