Microsoft word is always a great tool for work, and from personal use, I would say it has so many features to explore. Although a lot of people simply use it as a tool for typing documents, it has so many more features that are waiting to be explored. Every time you think you’ve explored so much using Microsoft Word, you would always learn about a new way to create something when faced with a challenge using this amazing software.
A lot of times, when you want to send a document as a picture, and you simply do a screenshot and then crop, as you proceed to send it via social apps, the image resolution automatically declines. This is even more frustrating when the image is intended to be printed, hence one of the best formats to use is to send it in JPEG.
While there are other applications that are specially created to convert your document files to image format, they usually won’t give the image a high resolution eventually. But using Microsoft word would just about guarantee that your document would be converted to a high-resolution image, which you can confidently print.
To convert your document files to JPEG, you can either do it directly, if your Office version has the “Special Paste” feature or You can convert the document first to PDF and eventually to JPEG.
Using The “Special Paste” Feature
First, select the document you want to convert and Copy it. Next, you would open a new document and navigate “Paste Special”. Next, you select “Picture” from the options, and right-click the image, proceed to save it as a Picture. Next, a list would be displayed, there you would choose JPEG and save it.
Using the double conversion method varies slightly for Mac and Windows, so we’ll treat them separately.
