- [Instructor] Here we've opened up a Word document full of images and thought, I'd like to have a copy of those images. Maybe store it on my computer for future use. So you scroll through the document, you see there are many images. Sometimes more than one on a page. And the process of copying them one by one could be very time-consuming. Well, there is a faster way and we're going to explore that in this week's Word tip using this file, Best of Landon Hotels Guide 035. You'll find that in your exercise files. Yes, you could go to an image, right click, choose Save As Picture.
And choose the location where you want it to save it. Give it a name, click Save and then repeat that process for every single image in your document. Let's click Cancel. An easier and faster way is to trick Word into placing all of the images in this document into a folder of your choosing. And you do it by saving this as a web page. Let's go up to File. Down to Save As. From here, we'll click Browse.
And we'll choose how about the desktop so it's easy to find. Next, we're going to change the Save As Type from Word Document to Webpage. You can see, HTM, and HTML are the formats we'll be saving to. But more importantly, what's going to happen is a folder is going to be created on our desktop named Best of Landon Hotel Guide 035. And in that folder, will be all of the image files all stored nice and neatly together in one location. So let's give it a try, we'll click Save.
Now that will display a webpage document. So our Word document suddenly looks more like a webpage. But we're not worried about that, we don't even want that. Let's go up to the View tab and change it from Web Layout to Print Layout. And we can even close this up without saving it, we don't need it at this point. We're going to minimize Word and go to our desktop where we do see a file. It looks like it's a webpage file. Best of Landon Hotel Guide, you can see that's the HTM file.
There's also a folder using the same name. Double click that folder to open it up and you're going to see all of the images. In fact, you might see duplicates of most of these images. There's our Landon Hotel logo, for example. The phone booths. You can see all of the images that appear somewhere in that document appear here at least once, sometimes twice. And now it's a simple matter of renaming the folder if we wanted to. We don't really need the HTM file. All we need is this folder full of image files.
And if there are some that we want to move around to other folders, it's a simple matter of clicking and dragging them here in Windows Explorer. Close this up and now you know how to harvest the images from a Word document and store them altogether in a single folder.
