Make a table of images in MS word that all have hyperlinks convert into a jpeg and retain hyperlinks

I have an attached word document:

It is a table 3*2 with an image in each with a hyperlink to our different ICT systems.  Due to a problem with our Intranet system which is managed by a third party, I do not have the permissions to add a table.  When I copy and paste a table from word or elsewhere, this does not work either. This intranet system is very old and no money is going to be invested on the basis it is likely to be replaced.

So, the only way I can think of getting the images onto the page would be to create the word document as attached, add hyperlinks to all images, convert to a jpeg then upload the image.  However, I have tried to do this using Paint Shop Pro8, Fireworks4, MS paint wont work etc.  Unfortunately i'm limited to the design tools available to do this too.

Help on this topic would be greatly appreciated. logos-in-table-with-hyperlinks.doc

You cannot "map" areas of a JPG and retain unique links in each mapped area.  The entire JPG will get the link assigned.  You can use HTML to do that which is quite easy.  Do you have the ability to upload HTML documents?

"Due to a problem with our Intranet system which is managed by a third party, I do not have the permissions to add a table. " Can you add to the current table? Place your cursor to the right of the last cell and hit tab. This should add a new row. If you can do this, you should be able to insert an image into the cell.

We dont currently have a HTML function.  We will chase the Intranet support guys but this can sometimes take ages if it gets sorted.

The current page consists of

Text
Text with hyperlinks
More text

I was hoping to replace the text with hyperlinks with the hyperlinked images

If you do get ahold of the Intranet support guys, here's the HTML code for your page:
Assuming they can upload the images to "/images" folder - that can be changed to reflect the actual path.

<table width="500" border="0">
  <tr>
    <td><a href="http://ru234:8888/iworld/houlive.html"><img border="0" width="150" height="75" src="/images/clip_image001.jpg" alt="Northgate Live System" /></a></td>
    <td><a href="https://www.reactwhomes.co.uk/ReACT_live/loginpage.aspx"><img border="0" width="150" height="84" src="/images/clip_image001_0000.jpg" alt="REACT" /></a></td>
    <td><a href="http://www.learningpool.com/whomes/"><img border="0" width="150" height="75" src="/images/clip_image001_0001.jpg" alt="Learning Pool" /></a></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td><a href="file:///\\core\data\WCC$\WHS\Shared\Quality_Manual\Quality_Manual\Quality_ManualPage1.pdf"><img border="0" width="150" height="75" src="/images/clip_image001_0002.jpg" alt="WHMS &amp; Document Library" /></a></td>
    <td><a href="http://wolvesnet/FormsNet/form.aspx?formcode=whs001"><img border="0" width="150" height="75" src="/images/clip_image001_0003.jpg" alt="Support Services" /></a></td>
    <td><a href="http://homeslive/login.asp?sid=LKKSGCFHCGVWTBNEEGYBL"><img border="0" width="150" height="75" src="/images/clip_image001_0004.jpg" alt="CRM" /></a></td>
  </tr>
</table>

And you can try to see if the text insert will actually display HTML - if so here are the links without the table:

<a href="http://ru234:8888/iworld/houlive.html"><img border="0" width="150" height="75" src="/images/clip_image001.jpg" alt="Northgate Live System" /></a><a href="https://www.reactwhomes.co.uk/ReACT_live/loginpage.aspx"><img border="0" width="150" height="84" src="/images/clip_image001_0000.jpg" alt="REACT" /></a><a href="http://www.learningpool.com/whomes/"><img border="0" width="150" height="75" src="/images/clip_image001_0001.jpg" alt="Learning Pool" /></a></p>
<p><a href="file:///\\core\data\WCC$\WHS\Shared\Quality_Manual\Quality_Manual\Quality_ManualPage1.pdf"><img border="0" width="150" height="75" src="/images/clip_image001_0002.jpg" alt="WHMS &amp; Document Library" /></a><a href="http://wolvesnet/FormsNet/form.aspx?formcode=whs001"><img border="0" width="150" height="75" src="/images/clip_image001_0003.jpg" alt="Support Services" /></a><a href="http://homeslive/login.asp?sid=LKKSGCFHCGVWTBNEEGYBL"><img border="0" width="150" height="75" src="/images/clip_image001_0004.jpg" alt="CRM" /></a>

to get an actual link to the image so it doesn't have to be uploaded by your Tech support, try uploading the images to Imageshack ( http://imageshack.us/  ) then linking to them  The parts in the code you would change are the

scr="        "

If you did and this was your image (just an example):

http://imageshack.us/photos/learning/241/softdevelopmentyj3.jpg/ 

that part of the code would look like this:

scr="http://imageshack.us/photos/learning/241/softdevelopmentyj3.jpg/"

Thank you for excellent feedback.

I have passed on the HTML code to the tech guys.  

However, I won't be able to link to images elsewhere as this page is on our Intranet
