Importing Fireworks Image to Word

Posted on 2004-10-21

I use Fireworks to resize my images and use the export wizard to push them out to a file.   This works great when I am web publishing, but I am placing the pics in a Word doc and they lose their clarity.  I have tried the Desktop publishing option  in the wizard, which creates a .tif file, but this is still not successful.

    Try the following - apols for the number of steps - I don’t mean to sound patronising.

    With your image open in fireworks, again choose the export wizard to keep it simple.

    Continue past where you choose - a desktop publishing application, - brief explanation called "Format Selected" - click the exit button -

    It should display another window called "Export Preview".  

    On the options tab, there should be a drop down box called 'format'

    Select BMP24

    Once selected, click the 'export' button on the right (beside the ok and cancel buttons) and export to a desired location - 'save'

    When in word - Insert > picture > from file

    Chose the location and file you exported from fireworks - see how it looks now.
