How to save a picture from Word to jpg
Any text that may need to be used separately from the text for some needs may be inserted into a text Word document. However, it is not entirely clear how to get a separate image from a text document.
If you need to pull out a few pictures, then in modern versions of the Word it is not difficult, since all the necessary functionality is available and extraction can be done in a couple of clicks. However, if you need to pull out a lot of pictures and / or the document has any protection, then it makes no sense to use the built-in Word tool, because either you won’t get anything at all, or the process takes too much time.
Consider all the available ways to save images from a Word document.
Method 1: Standard functionality
In this case, you only need Word itself. It is desirable that it was the latest version (not lower than the 2013 version). In this case, the process will take no more than a few seconds:
- Open the desired document.
- Find the picture you want to save. Select it with the left mouse button, and then click on it with the right.
- The context menu opens where you need to select the item “Save as picture” .
- Windows "Explorer" will start, where you will have to specify the location on the disk where the selected image will be saved.
- Do the above paragraphs with other images in the document that you want to save.

Unfortunately, this method does not always work, since the document can be protected from editing and / or viewing. It also makes no sense to use this method, if there are too many pictures in the document - you will kill your time, if you save it one by one.
Method 2: Through the archive
This method requires more actions from the user than the previous one, but it allows you to save an image from protected documents to your computer. It can also be used to access the very contents of such documents.
The essence of the method is to rename the Word document by changing the extension from DOCX to RAR or ZIP, so some users will have to make preliminary system settings in order to access the file extensions change:
- Open the "Explorer" . In it, select the "View" tab.
- Check the box next to “File Name Extension” .
- Now click on “Options” .
- A window will open with a more detailed view setting. Here you need to go back to the "View" tab.
- In the "Advanced Options" window , uncheck the box next to "Hide extensions for registered file types."
- Click "Apply" and "OK . "
It is possible that you already have all the settings by default correctly and you will not need to resort to the instructions described above. Also do not forget that to extract the archives on the computer must be an archiver program, for example, WinRAR.
Now you can proceed directly to the process of extracting images from a Word document:
- Select the document from which you want to get the images.
- Click on it with the right mouse button. In the context menu, select the "Rename" option.
- The file name itself is not necessary to change. Pay attention to the value that comes after the dot in the title. Write rar or zip in small letters.
- Press Enter to save.
- A window will appear warning that you are changing the file extension. Click OK .
When the document is turned into an archive it needs to be unpacked again:
- Expand the created archive. If you have any archiver installed on your computer, it will not be difficult. You just need to click on it twice with the left mouse button.
- In the archive itself, go to the “Word” folder.
- Then open the “Media” folder.
- Here you will see all the pictures and videos, if any, that are contained in the document. Drag them from the archive to the folder where you would like to save them.
- Wait for the dragged files to be unzipped.
Getting pictures from a Word document is not as difficult as it may seem at first glance. The whole procedure usually does not take more than a couple of minutes.
