How to Convert Png Files to Docx File

By Marina Martin

A *.PNG (Portable Network Graphic) file is a high-resolution image file that compresses more effectively than other image file types and supports image transparency. A *.DOCX file is a Microsoft Word 2007 or later text file that can also contain images. Converting a *.PNG file into a *.DOCX requires just a few steps in Microsoft Word.

Things You'll Need

  • Microsoft Word 2007 or later

Step 1

Open Microsoft Word 2007 and create a new blank document.

Step 2

Click the “Insert” tab.

Step 3

Click the “Picture” button.

Step 4

Select the *.PNG image you want to convert and click “Insert.”

Step 5

Click the “Save” button in the upper-left corner. Name your new *.DOCX document, choose a save location that you can easily find later, and click “Save.”

Tips & Warnings

  • Click the "Format" tab in Microsoft Word 2007 to make changes to your *.PNG graphic, including adding a border or resizing the image.
