Can't see embedded image in Word on Windows

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've tried this several times: paste an image in a Word 2004 document on the Mac (the images were cut from a variety of sources, including Preview), open up the Word document in Windows (Office 2003), and I see the following error placeholder message for the image:

"quicktime and a tiff decompressor are needed to see this picture"

I've installed Quicktime on Windows, but still see the same message.

Any ideas?

TIA,
Eric

Try converting the pic to a JPG or PNG or other platform-independant image. The problem probably stems from the fact that the TIFF is a Mac TIFF not a PC TIFF (yes, for some stupid reason there is a difference).

I investigated this and found the solution for me (can't say whether this will sort out the problem for you)

The problem occurs if you drag the image from the internet straight into word. Then the picture will not embed properly. The rule to remember is always drag a picture from the internet to desktop first. It will then embed itself properly

If images in word not showing on print preview or when printing

mac procedure (im sure you can translate this for PC )

1) "word" "preferences"
2) in the print section make sure include drawing objects box is ticked
3) if its greyed out (no access to change it) then save document under another name then open new document and follow procedure
