Do you want to convert a Word document (or a portion of one) to an image? Microsoft Word has a feature that enables you to do so. You can convert documents to photos using “paste special” in versions 2007 and higher, and you’ll have the option of converting them to jpeg, jpg, png, and other formats.
This method is very easy to use and produces a good high-resolution image, which is far superior to the other online doc-to-image converters. You can also convert any document to a graphic format such as jpg, tiff, png, or gif.
Stop wasting time and money searching for scam converters when you can create an image without one by following these easy instructions:
Choose what you want to save as an image.
Copy the selection.
Open a new document, please.
A special paste.
Select the “Picture” button.
Right-click on the resulting image and select “Save as photo”
Select the format you want from the drop-down menu.
The instructions below will guide you through each step.
1: Choose what you would like to save as an image
If you want to transform your entire document into a picture, pick it all. You can do it by:
Pressing Ctrl+A on your PC.
Press command+A on the Mac.
Press Shift+Ctrl+End to pick from the cursor location until the end of the text.
Or select “Edit” > “Select Everything” from the menu.
If you just want to convert parts of your document into images, use your cursor to pick them.
Please keep in mind that only the material on a single page will be converted to an image. To convert multiple pages, select each one’s contents and proceed through the steps one at a time.
2: Copy Your Selection
Copy the selection. You can do it by:
Typing Ctrl+C on your PC.
Typing command+C on a Mac.
Right-click the list and choose “copy.”

Here is what the menu will look like on a Mac.
Choose your preferred format from the drop-down menu and save it. You’ve completed your mission, man!
I recommend saving it as a png file if you want to upload it to the Internet. It will provide you with the highest quality in a small file.
If you’re going to end up with a black background?
If the final converted image has a black background after running until the last stage, try saving it as a png or tiff again. Otherwise, use MS Paint to open the transformed image file.
