When using the right-click option Save as Picture to save an image from a Word document, the image is saved in very low resolution.


This issue has been fixed in version 16.0.12527. If you have not updated to the latest version, you can still work around this issue. Copy the image from the Word document and paste it into a PowerPoint document. From PowerPoint, you can use the Save as Picture option to save a full resolution image.
