How to Put Images From Photoshop Into a Word Document

Updated February 21, 2017

Photoshop is professional graphics editing software published by Adobe Systems. Graphic designers, photographers and advertising professionals rely on Photoshop to enhance, correct and modify images. The raw file format (uncompressed) format of Photoshop files is PSD. This type of uncompressed file format is not compatible with Microsoft Word. The image or graphic file must be saved as a GIF or JPEG format first and then inserted into the Word document.
