    I have four photos on Microsoft Word. If I remove them one by one, I get a file called scrap. If I open them with Paint and save as JPEG, the quality goes down and the color gets distorted. What should I do?

    I usually paste into Photoshop and save as JPEG.

    I figured it out. I right clicked on the individual image and clicked copy. Then I opened Microsoft Photo Editor. The important thing to remember is not to open a blank file and insert the image into the file. That is the wrong thing to do. Once Microsoft Photo Editor is opened with nothing but a gray window showing, click edit and then paste the image as the picture. It will put the image from Word as a crystal clear picture of the same quality and resolution as it had on the Word Document. Then make sure to save it as a JPEG.

    I assumed you were already cutting/copying the pictures from the word document and only had MS Paint.
