Learn the quick way to convert GIF to JPG.

Changing graphic file formats for an image is quite easy. You don't need an expensive software package, nor do you have to download and install anything. This little feat takes only a basic word processor and a few clicks of your mouse. There are applications where you will find that a JPEG file may fare better than a GIF for various reasons, and being able to switch file formats can be very handy. Of course, GIF files have their place as well, and the process can be reversed if needed.


Step 1

Launch Microsoft Word, open a new document ("Ctrl+N") and drag your GIF file into the workspace. You can also click the "Insert" tab, then click the Picture icon from the main menu task bar.
