Word lets you use different picture formats within documents. When you save a Word document as a Web page, Word creates a folder for files you've used within your document, such as clip art and images. The folder is placed in the same location as the saved Web page. Word saves a copy of bitmaps as JPEGs and a copy of WMFs (file format for clip art from Microsoft's Clip Organizer) as GIFs. You can convert any images that don't convert into JPEGs from there.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open the Word document that contains the pictures you want to convert.

  2. 2

    Click the Office Button and then "Save As." The Save As dialogue box will open. Change the "Save as type" option to "Web Page." Click "Save."

  3. 3

    Click the Office Button and select "Open." You will be directed to the file you just saved in the Open dialogue box.

  4. 4

    Look for a folder with "_files" extension. The folder's name will be the same as your document's name, but include an "_files" extension. For example, if the original file is named "myimages," the folder will be "myimages_files."

  5. 5

    Double-click the folder.

  6. 6

    Right-click an empty area in the dialogue box and select "View" and "Details."

  7. 7

    Right-click any GIFs that didn't convert completely into the format you need. Select "Open with" and "Paint."

  8. 8

    Click "File" and "Save As" from the Paint menu. Change the "Save as type" option to "JPEG" in the Save As dialogue box. Click "Save."
