To save a Word document as a JPEG file, first take a screen shot of the word document. Next, paste it into a graphics program, and use the program to save the graphic as a JPEG file.
- Take a screen shot of your Word document
Adjust the zoom in your word processor so the entire page is visible on the screen without scrolling up, down or sideways. Take a screen shot of the screen. This process saves a picture of your screen into the memory of your computer. For a multi-page document, handle each page individually. You can take the screenshot by using a the print screen key on your keyboard.
- Open a graphics program on your computer
The Paint program is a good option, but others also work. Make certain JPEG is an option for saving. You probably want to choose a program that lets you crop a picture as well, so you can isolate the Word document from the rest of the screen image.
- Paste the screen shot image into the graphics program
A simple paste command allows you to paste the image into a graphics program. If desired, trim the picture to include only the document image you want to save.
- Select the option "Save As"
Under the File option, choose "Save As." Give your document a name, and select the file type as JPEG. Hit Save.
