Get an Image from a Word Document

Extracting an image from a Microsoft Office Word document is something that, at one point or the other, you may find yourself needing to do. Perhaps one of the bloggers who you have hired through Upwork has just submitted  an article that has pictures in it.

WordPress Removes Images from Word Documents

One of the things that you will discover, particularly if you are working with WordPress, is that any Word Document that you copy and paste to your site gets stripped of its images.You, therefore, actually need to first extract the images, before uploading them separately to WordPress.

Extract an Image from a Word Document

If you ever find yourself needing to extract an image from a Word document, here is how you go about doing it;

  • Open the Word Document
  • Click on the Office Button on the top left corner of your document
  • Scroll down and click on the “Save As” button
  • Choose the place where you wish to save your document. I usually save mine on the Desktop for ease of access.
  • Click on the button in front of “Save as Type.”
  • Scroll down and choose “Web Page.”
  • Click on “Save.”
  • Go to the place where you have just saved the word document as a web page. In my case, its my computer’s “Desktop.”
  • You will see that two files have now been created (See below).
  • Saving a word document as a web page creates two filesThe first is a web page that you click on in order to view your newly saved document.
  • The second is a folder in which the files for the newly created Web Page are housed.
  • This is where all the images that were once embedded within the Microsoft Office Word document will be housed.
  • What you will discover is that you will have two versions of each image. The first one will have the exact dimensions of the original.
  • The second one will be a scaled back version. The quality on the second image is not the best, although it can be useful if you need to reduce the sizes of your images.
