Hi,

pls try
Sub macro()
For Each shp In ActiveDocument.InlineShapes
    If shp.Type = wdInlineShapePicture Then
        shp.LockAspectRatio = msoFalse
        sclH = shp.ScaleHeight
        SclW = shp.ScaleWidth
        shp.Height = shp.Height * 100 / sclH
        shp.Width = shp.Width * 100 / SclW
    End If
Next
End Sub

DO you want the images to still be contained in the Word files or are you looking for full size images only?
