OT - Images out of Word Document
on Mar 10, 2011 at 2:25:42 pm

Hi,

A client sent me a bunch of pictures that are embedded in an MS Word document.

Is there a way to save the photos to the desktop or otherwise get the images OUT of Word, so I can work with them in FCP?

Thanks in advance,

Wayne

I really hate it when they do that.

Try dragging them from the word doc page onto your desktop.

Hi Chris,

Thanks.

I'm actually using Neo Office [the Open-Source version of Word] and your suggestion doesn't work, unfortunately.

Thanks,

Wayne

Copy from word, paste to any picture editor like photoshop.

For some reason, that didn't work last night - but voila, it works today.

Even into Preview.

Thanks a lot,

Wayne

The other way you can do it, without resorting to using the clipboard, depends on whether the software you use can save as the latest Word .docx file format. You'll also need to have a software utility that can handle .zip files (Stuffit on the Mac, for example, or something like WinZip if you are playing on Windows).

Save the file (works even for older .doc files too) as a .docx file, then in Finder, change the file extension from .docx to .zip.

Once you've done that, unzip the file using whatever your archive software is on your chosen platform. In the resulting folder, you'll see another folder called Word and inside that another folder called media - all of the graphics in your document are all sitting in there in their original formats and resolutions, ready to use.
