Saving pasted JPEGs in Word 2007
Posted on 2009-05-08
Hello, If I take a screenshot of an active window and then paste that into a Word or Excel document, is there a way to then turn that same image into a JPEG file? If so, how do you do it? I've tried following the instructions shown below from the Word 2007 Help menu (i.e. I've tried to paste as a JPEG but after doing so, I still can't figure out how to save it to a file). Thanks for the help.
From Word 2007:
You can save your SmartArt graphic in a graphics file format such as Graphics Interchange Format (.gif) (GIF: A graphics file format (.gif extension in Windows) used to display indexed-color graphics on the World Wide Web. It supports up to 256 colors and uses lossless compression, meaning that no image data is lost when the file is compressed.), JPEG File Interchange Format (.jpg) (JPEG: A graphics file format (.jpg extension in Microsoft Windows) supported by many Web browsers that was developed for compressing and storing photographic images. It's best used for graphics with many colors, such as scanned photos.), or Portable Network Graphics Format (.png) (PNG: A graphic file format that is supported by some Web browsers. Short for Portable Network Graphics, PNG supports variable transparency of images and control of image brightness on different computers. PNG files are compressed bitmaps..).
Click the SmartArt graphic that you want to save in a graphics file format.
On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click Copy.
On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click the arrow under Paste, and then click Paste Special.
In the Paste Special dialog box, in the As list, click Picture (GIF), Picture (PNG), or Picture (JPEG).
To work with your file in another program, insert it as an object (object: A table, chart, graphic, equation, or other form of information. Objects created in one application, for example spreadsheets, and linked or embedded in another application are OLE objects.).
In Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 only, to quickly save your SmartArt graphic as a picture, right-click the border of the SmartArt graphic, and then click Save as Picture on the shortcut menu.
