  6. Open the module by double click and paste following codes:
Sub InsertSpecificNumberOfPictureForEachPage()
  Dim StrFolder As String
  Dim strFile As String
  Dim objDoc As Document
  Dim dlgFile As FileDialog
  Dim objInlineShape As InlineShape
  Dim nResponse As Integer
  Dim strPictureNumber As Integer
  Dim strPictureSize As String
  Dim n As Integer  

  Set dlgFile = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFolderPicker)
  With dlgFile
    If .Show = -1 Then
      StrFolder = .SelectedItems(1) & "\"
      MsgBox ("No Folder is selected!")
      Exit Sub
    End If
  End With

  strFile = Dir(StrFolder & "*.*", vbNormal)
  strPictureNumber = InputBox("Input the number of the picture for each page", "Picture Number", "For exemple: 1")
  n = 1  

  While strFile <> ""
    Selection.InlineShapes.AddPicture FileName:=StrFolder & strFile, LinkToFile:=False, SaveWithDocument:=True
    Selection.Collapse Direction:=wdCollapsEnd
    Selection.TypeText Text:=Left(strFile, InStrRev(strFile, ".") - 1)
    Selection.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = wdAlignParagraphCenter
    If ActiveDocument.InlineShapes.Count = strPictureNumber * n Then
      n = n + 1
    End If
    strFile = Dir()

  For Each objInlineShape In ActiveDocument.InlineShapes
    Selection.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = wdAlignParagraphCenter
  Next objInlineShape

  nResponse = MsgBox("Do you want to resize all pictures?", 4, "Resize Picture")
  If nResponse = 6 Then
    strPictureSize = InputBox("Input the height and width of the picture, seperated by comma", "Height and Width", "For exemple:500,500")
    For Each objInlineShape In ActiveDocument.InlineShapes
      objInlineShape.Height = Split(strPictureSize, ",")(0)
      objInlineShape.Width = Split(strPictureSize, ",")(1)
    Next objInlineShape
  End If
End Sub
