Carin M-

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go! :)

What website are you tring to copy and paste to? Generally, you don't copy or save pictures in the way you save text- but more details should help answer your question. :unsure:

Hi underscor3,

Thanks for the reply, I manage allaboutroboticsurgery.com and needed to add a patient testimonial, sent to me as a word document with a picture on the document but I don't know how to take the picture from it to add with the text, unless there is some way to convert the document? Usually people will send me their picture in .jpeg format

You can right-click on the picture in the word doc and select copy, then open up paint (go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint) and press CTRL+V to paste the image. From here you can save it as a JPEG file.

If you're having trouble, upload the word document and I'll grab it for you. :)

I'm embarrased to say it's 2003, is there a newer version that I don't have to buy?

You can always use Open Office, which is free, but I like 03. I use it myself, and I haven't had any problems copying images embedded into word documents.

I'm not sure what else to try, but again, if you'd like to upload the document, I would be happy to get the picture for you.

Yeah, yesterday I downloaded open office and I still can't figure out how to save the image although it lets me select it so that's a step in the right direction, anyway it would be nice to know if the image can be saved out of word document, just in case I need to do it in the future....Well now I'm not permitted to attach the file

Once it's selected, can you right-click on it and selected "copy"?

No, don't worry about it really, I already uninstalled the program, it was huge and slowing down my computer, thanks for all your help, if I need help in the future with something else I know who to ask.....
