If you are to convert many pictures perhaps a tool like this may prove helpfull

A simple way if only few pic.'s
1) insert pic. in a program capable of inserting emf/wmf (in msword: insert picture from file)
2) scereenshot ->clipboard [PrintScreen]
3) paste/pasteSpecial in photoshop

I use Irfanview to convert images. It handles almost every type of image and does batch conversion too.

find at: http://www.irfanview.com/

if it is just one image (I know its awkward) you can use the "print screen" button on your keyboard and paste it into paint, then cut it out and save it as a jpeg etc.
