  • Photoshop .JPGs and MS Word

    How come sometimes when I save a .JPG in PS MS Word won't let me import it. It comes up with a red box with an x through it (just like the broken link icon)? [img]/emoticons/frusty.gif[/img]

    P.S. I effing hate MS Word, but I'm sometimes forced to use it so that Ad Execs can use certain files. [img]/emoticons/frusty.gif[/img]

    i've only ever had problems importing jpgs into word when the image was saved from a mac. if i were you, i'd bribe the imps inside...they like licorice.

    btw - i feel your pain. i once had to layout an entire systems manual in word. i think i actually lost hair over that one. and friends.

        God! Word is the crappiest program for anything other than typing a letter in.

        You should use TIFs. I went through tons of troubleshooting trying to get anything done in Word when I approached it with my knowledge of Quark and Print. You cannot use any logical form of thought when working with Word.

        Also, keep in mind that when you eMail the Word Doc to the recipent, your JPG or TIF, or GIF is no longer what it was... it will be automatically converted to a WMF. Which is compltely worthless save for viewing onscreen or printing from a desk jet.

        Word SHOULD NEVER be used for Layout or Design! IT SUCKS!

            Better yet, try converting your Word doc to a PDF... it will convert, but is not always editable or able to be disassembled later in Illustrator. A good PDF that has been properly generated should be able to be opened in Illustrator and the text show up on text paths and be totally editable.

            Word has a tough time with this. Plus it screws with your resolution.

                LMAO @ unc, holy poohyness....

                Yeah, I'm making a proposal for Acct. Execs to use for ad selling. They want to be able edit them, but I have to insert graphics, logos, etc. b/c none of them are competent enough to know how to insert a picture in Word. They don't have to be .JPGs, I just assumed that being one of the more basic file formats it should work. I found out the .EPSs work really well, although I don't know how it will turn out post e-mail. If it pancakes up I'll have to PDF it and hope they don't need to edit it. Otherwise I'll be stuck in edit-relay hell. ARG.

                  You can always try to copy and paste into Word. That usually works.



                  If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would ever get done.

                      Were the JPGs saved as 'progressive' by any chance? CMYK? There is no reason why an RGB non-progressive JPG shouldn't be able to be inserted into Word. But if you are still having problems, use TIF. Universal raster format in my opinion. Try and avoid EPS as the typical office printer will not be postscript and therefore will only manage to print the low-rez TIF preview of an EPS. If you need a vector image in Word, use WMF.

                        Thanks for the advice. I think tried both progressive and non, but I can't be sure. I figured MS Word wasn't quality enough to accept TIFs, but then again I'm not sure I tried.

                          Word doesn'timport images very well. I get the big red X when the image I'm trying to import is too big.

                            I always run into the big red X when the image is CMYK. I change the color mode to RGB, and presto! I hate word, and I'm sure you do too, but sometimes we just have to use it. I'm pretty sure CMYK won't import or paste into word regardless of file format.

                                I created my first signature in 12 years of not touching Photoshop or any graphics program in general. What do you guys think?

                                Oh, I wouldn't go so far as to say ''never use it for wide format.''
                                It gets used all the time for some very very large things. I recently did a 16' x 87' backdrop built in Photoshop. It was printed...

                                Generally like it a lot. Pretty different and that's cool.

                                Was thinking that I might like it better if I didn't have to click on the icons, that content would appear as you scroll down....
