Copying a jpeg into work question/issue

When copying a jpeg into Microsft Word 2010, the picture never maintains its size but if it is copied into PowerPoint 2010 it does.  How can jpegs copied into Microsoft Word be setup so they maintain their copied size?  Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried inserting instead of copy paste?  And also you can just click and drag the corners of the picture to make it whatever size you want.

Inserting does the same thing and we have 100 pictures we need to put into Word and it will take time dragging the corners for 100 pictures.  Why doesn't it just paste the actual size into Word?

regsamp,

Please check this in Word Options. It might help to your issue.
1. File -> Options
2. Advanced tab -> Image Size and Quality section
3. Put a tick on "Do not compress Images in this File."

Sincerely,

Ed

regsamp,

Did you check the margin, page size, columns of your document? Images inserted into document will automatically fit according to the size of the document page.

Let us say for  example you have 2000X1900 px image. If you insert that into 4X6 size document, Word forced the image to fit into the size of the document that make it smaller.

Sincerely,

Ed

That makes sense Mind.  But how large do you have to go in the margins or is it just a process of elimination?

No matter how high I go on the margins or page size, it is still not large enough for the docs.

regsamp,

If things will not work out as what we want, then we need to find another way.
If your object is to have a uniform size of images you inserted into the document, using a table is an efficient way. If you want 2 pictures in one page:
1. Create 1 column and 2 rows table.
2. Adjust the size of the cell of the table in your desired size.
3. Ensure that Automatically resize contents is not checked.
4. Start inserting your jpeg images.

Sincerely,

Ed

That option is really not working out.  Just keep fighting with the size settings.  I guess there is no easy way to take a jpeg and maintain it's size in Word.

If you don't mind using some VBA to achieve this, you could run the following code after all the images have been added to change them all to 100% original size.
Sub ForceOriginalImageSize()

Dim shp As InlineShape

For Each shp In ActiveDocument.InlineShapes
    shp.ScaleHeight = 100
    shp.ScaleWidth = 100
DoEvents
Next shp

End Sub

Open in new window

Thank you for the option.  How exactly should this be inserted and run in Microsoft Word 2010?

It seems to work.  Thanks atomsheep.

Sorry for my absence, I was at a conference last week. I assume you've figured out how to insert and run this in Word, but if you haven't, then in the Developer tab, click Visual Basic, then copy and paste the code into the ThisDocument (Code) window. Then from the Developer tab, click Macros, select the ForceOriginalImageSize macro, and click Run.
