How to Convert a JPG File Into Word

By Filonia LeChat

Microsoft Word handles graphics such as JPG files quickly, converting them into its own documents with a couple of quick clicks. You can convert a JPG file into a Word file to use for illustration in a report or proposal, or to let the picture stand alone as its own document.

Step 1

Open Microsoft Word. A blank 8.5-by-11-inch page appears by default on the screen.

Step 2

Click the "Insert" tab at the top of the screen. Click the "Picture" button below the tab on the ribbon/toolbar.

Step 3

Browse to the location on the computer with the JPG file, such as the desktop. To find it more easily, click the "All Pictures" button and select "JPEG File Interchange Format" from the drop-down menu, which will narrow the choices down to just JPG/JPEG extensions.

Step 4

Double-click the picture to convert and it will open on the Word page. Position it as desired.

Step 5

Click the "File" tab at the top of the screen. Select "Save As." Type a name for the document. The default "Save as type" is "Word Document." Leave it as "Word Document" and click the "Save" button.
