Extracting Images from Word
So a client has supplied their images embedded in a Word document? On a PC, if you copy that image (such as a photo) from the Word document and paste it into Photoshop or another image program for further editing before placement in a layout application, not all the pixels are carried across from the clipboard, (although it appears to be possible on a Mac). The result is a low resolution image which appears pixelated when printed.

To ensure all the pixels in the image in the Word document are extracted, you will need access to CorelDRAW or Microsoft Photo Editor which was supplied with Win 98 (the newer version with Win XP doesn't do as good a job).

Continue on to page two for CorelDRAW instructions or skip to page five for Microsoft Photo Editor instructions.
