So you have this ms word page and want you to convert it into a .jpeg or .png image, but are unable to find a solution. If so, this post is for you.
I was also once stuck in a problem like this and spent hours finding a solution. I used ms word to create a poster(and it is good at it). I struggled a lot and finally found a solution.
Here is what we will be doing :
- First we will be converting our ms word document, where your page is, into a pdf file.
- Then we print (don’t worry, not a physical one) the page which you want to convert into image into OneNote.
- Finally we copy this image, paste it in paint and save it as .jpeg, or .png.
So you are also going to learn how to convert a pdf page into an image.
NOTE : You need to have OneNote on your computer.
Converting ms word file into pdf
Lets say this is the ms word page I want to save as an image.
- First go to ‘file’.
- Then click on ‘save as’.
- Select the place where you want to save it, and chose the file type as ‘pdf ‘. Then click enter.
Converting pdf file into an image
- Open the pdf file you saved. This will open in some browser you have.
- Now either press ‘Ctrl + p’, or right click at the page you want as an image, and select ‘print’.
- You browser will open an interface. This might be different for different search engines. For chrome, it is like
- Chose the necessary settings, like the page no. color (b/w or colored) etc.
- Most importantly select the destination as OneNote and click ‘print’.
- This should open OneNote, and it would ask you for a page where you want to save it. Select and continue. This should give you an image in that OneNote page
Saving the image (final step)
- You should now be able to get ‘copy’ option after right clicking it.
- Finally open ms paint and paste it there.
- Fit the image just inside the workspace and save it.
- You should have plenty of options including .jpeg and .png, and many more.
I agree there should have been an easier way, inside these kind of applications themselves, to do such simple kind of tasks. But Unfortunately there was a need to make this post.
I hope this tutorial was helpful to you. If you have any feedback or any other questions, feel free to mention that in the comments.
