Microsoft WordArt

If you would like to upload to your site logos or graphics made in Microsoft WordArt to your site, consider the following steps:

Microsoft Word (MSW) files are not interchangeable. MSW maintains its own formats, which makes it impossible for MSW files to be displayed on the web. However, there are two tricks to get these images out of a MSW document.

  • First option is to use a screen or screen region capture tool. There is limited, to none, loss of image quality from this approach, however not everyone has this capability or is familiar with it.

  • Second option is to edit the word document and "Save as". Under the "Save as type," choose "web page" in the box at the bottom of the save manager. When you finish saving, there will be two things saved. One will be the main document, perhaps called Doc1.htm. The other will be a directory of supporting files, perhaps called Doc1_files. In this directory is a ".gif" file for each of your images. If you open the directory in the file explorer and do a view thumbnails you will find your image.
After you use either of these approaches to create the .gif or .jpg file, it can be uploaded to a storeroom or image gallery just as any other image.


There is one advantage to the "Save as" approach and that is that the .gif file has a transparent background. This means that the word art would not appear in a white box but instead would show the page's normal background.
