How to Change a DOCX to a JPEG

By Wendy Lau

DOCX files may be viewed by computer users with Microsoft Word 2007 or a later version. Microsoft Word allows you to save documents in several formats, regardless of whether the document contains text or graphics, but the JPEG format is not one of those formats. There are several ways to turn a DOCX file to a JPEG, including first converting the file to a PDF. Adobe Acrobat is a program that can help you convert the file to PDF and then to JPG. You also can turn to online file conversion sites, such as Zamzar and Neevia Technologies.

Things You'll Need

  • Adobe Acrobat
  • Email
  • Zip program

Step 1

Turn your DOCX file into a JPEG file using Adobe Acrobat. Open the DOCX file in Microsoft Word 2007 or a later version. Click on "File" and select "Save as." In the "Save as type" section, select "PDF (*.pdf)" and click on "Save." The PDF file will automatically launch in Adobe Acrobat. Click on "File" and select "Save as." In the "Save as type" section, select "JPEG (*.jpg, *.jpeg, *.jpe)" and click on "Save."

Step 2

Convert your DOCX file into a JPEG file using the online file conversion site Zamzar. Click on "Browse" from its home page to select the DOCX file you want to convert. Select the drop-down menu in "Step 2" to select "png." Enter your email address in "Step 3" and click the "Convert" button. Check your email for a message from "Zamzar Conversions" and click on the link to download a copy of the zipped converted file. Click on the "Download Now" button and save the file to your computer. Navigate to a free online photo editing program, such as Picnik, Paint.NET or FotoFlexer, upload the photo to the program and resave it as a JPG file.

Step 3

Convert DOCX file into a JPEG file using the online file conversion site Neevia Technology, which offers the Neevia Document Converter. On the site's "Document Converter" section, select the "JPEG" in the drop-down menu for "Output format." Click on "Browse" to select your DOCX file. Select "Wait for conversion in browser" in the "Delivery Method" section. When the file conversion is complete, right-click on the file link to select "Save Link As" and click "Save."
