You'll learn how to get a reference to the Word Editor of an Outlook email and use this to create a new Inline Shape object. You also see a few basic techniques for resizing and formatting the picture that you've inserted.

You can improve the resolution of the video using another icon at the bottom right of the frame. This will slow down the connection speed, but increase the display and sound quality. This icon only becomes visible when you start playing the video.
