Extract Embedded Images

Word documents containing embedded images can not be easily extracted. Attempts to copy and paste the images result in poor quality images or the document contains too many images to copy them individually.
 
To extract embedded images from a Word document save the document as a web page using the following steps:
 
1. On the File menu click Save as Web Page
2. In the Save As drop down select Web Page (*.htm; *.html)
 
Images will be extracted from the document and placed in the folder named <DocumentName>_files in the same location as the saved web page.
 
The information in this article applies to Microsoft Word 97, Microsoft Word 2000, Microsoft Word 2002, and Microsoft Word 2003
