Exporting and saving all embedded images in a Word document can surely be a pain especially if you’re dealing with large files. Microsoft Word doesn’t have a quick option to extract and save all embedded images/pictures as separate JPEG files at the same time. While you can always save pictures from a Word file by simple right-clicking the image and choosing “Save Picture” option if any, that process is just a whole waste of time. On top of that, you’ll get prompted to save the file in the form of multiple “Save As” boxes which can be very annoying sometimes!
So, how do you batch extract and save all images/pictures embedded in a .DOC file all at once?
The solution is simple: just save the .DOC file as HTM or HTML. By the time you save any .DOC file containing images, MicroSoft Word automatically extract those images and save them in a folder named as that of your .DOC or HTML file. Take a look at these screenies (click to enlarge):
