Is it possible to take a word document, (.doc) and convert it into a jpeg file?

I am asking because in order to post on Facebook it needs to be a photo or video file. It won' allow posting a pdf file either.

I know I could post it like on my blog and attach a link, but thats not what I want to do. Is there a way to take a "writing" and convert it into something that could be posted?

I know I could take a screen shot, but just not practical when dealing with multible paragraphs.

Any ideas?

Thanks as always.

So, if I open the document, I go to file, save as? It doesnt give me an option to save it to the clipboard.

I am running XP. I can figure out how to copy and paste it into paint, but don't see an option for clipboard/

Any time you r-click to Save something,,, it's copied to what is called the clipboard.
open Paint
On the menu bar across the top of the Paint program should be a button that says Paste, do so.
The document you copied should now be Pasted into the Paint working area
Now you 'Save as' a JPEG file

Are you serious? You don't know how to Copy/Paste? Or how to use File functions such as Save As??

Yes, I'm serious. Yes, I know how to copy and paste. Yes I know how to use these functions. I just didn't realiuzed when i right click to copy something, it was saved in the clipboard. I always thought it was floating in the ether somewhere.

I will try that in a bit. I went ahead and uploaded these documents using, www.scribd.com, I was then able to copy theURL and post them as a link.

Yes, I know how to copy a URL!! LOL

I appreciate the input, looking forward to seeing how it works converting a .doc to a jpeg. Yes, I know how to do that too!!

Thanks again.

Actually, in the XP version of Paint there is no Paste button... the Paste function is under Edit, IIRC.

Just use this online doc to JPEG Converter, even easier. just choose file then convert file to JPEG.

That "ether" is the clipboard. :D

Anything that you use the copy (or cut) function with will be put into the clipboard so that you can then paste it where ever you want.
Good riddance PCWorld.

The other overall option is to take a screen shot of the part of the Word document that you want. Depending on how you do that screen shot, you can potentially get just the relevant text or you might need to edit the screen shot so that you eliminate all the stuff you don't want.
Good riddance PCWorld.

If you want to convert your word file into jpeg then open the file and press print screen > now open paint > go to edit and paste the file now save it as jpeg.

Coping to the clipboard means coping to a buffer in memory. So if you hit Alt-PrintScreen it captures the doc and saves it to memory. You then paste it to paint and save as and select .jpg. Alt-prtscr does a screen print on an active doc so click in the doc first. Just prtscr copies the whole screen.
