Converting a .doc file into jpg

  NewestRoyWidd1 18:05 13 Feb 09

Hello,a cousin has sent me a photo that she scanned into a Word file as a .doc,is there a way that I can convert it to a jpeg so it can be altered using either Irfanview or Photoshop please?
I opened the file using MS Word Viewer,no real hurry for replies because I'm off to work soon until tomorrow morning.I'm on XP Pro sp2.
Many thanks in advance,NRW1

Don't think so, it will be part of the page

You should be able to right-click on the photo and choose to 'save as' then choose .jpg and save in My Pictures.

Technotiger;I tried that thanks but it can't be done,perhaps you are right woodchip,but I'll check for more replies-if any-in the morning,many thanks though for your prompt answers.

Yes, sorry about that, having re-read your post, I would not have made that suggestion. I was thinking more about photos in emails, not scanned into documents.

copy the doc file and insert it into PowerPoint, do whatever cropping and trimming you need and then save that slide as a jpeg.

Hope this helps :-)

Or, thinking alone the lines suggested by Fermat's Theorem, you could use FastStone Capture to do a screenshot of just the Picture. FastStone will automatically save the picture to your My Pictures in jpeg format.

Similar idea to Technotiger.
Open the document and zoom the page to a size where the photo looks good then use a free screen grabber such as MWSnap click here to capture just the photo. If you are going to work on it I would recommend saving it as a .tif or .bmp as these are "non-lossy formats" then you can open it in your graphics program and do what you like with it. You can save as a jpeg after you have finished with it to reduce the file size.

This is an example of what I mean by doing a screenshot with FastStone Capture ...

PS - click on the pic to enlarge it.

PPS - you can then right-click on the pic and save it in the normal way, in your My Pictures.
