That Word Document You Made …

“… I love all the image samples in it and I want to turn them into a gallery. Any ideas how to save them all in one go?”

This question came up recently regarding a large Word document with a substantial number of images in.

Word allows you to select and save individual images to a variety of formats from the right-click menu:

Word document - save an image

However, this feature does not work for multiple selected images, so what do you do?

It’s An Easier Hack Than You Thought.

After considering several options, testing and rejecting them I realized that the answer was hidden in the FILE tab in the menu bar of Word.

Simply go to the File menu > Save As > select from the File Type: Web Page (*.htm, *.html) and where-ever you save this a subdirectory will be created containing all the images saved as *.png files.

Word document - Save as web page

The Warptest POV

This is a nice, easy solution that requires no scripting, complex manipulations or indepth technical knowledge and grants you free access to use all the images embedded in your Word document as you see fit.

This might just be my favorite Word hack right now. What’s yours?

 

Before making this blog into Warptest.com it resided on Google’s blogger (or blogspot).

Google’s services work using Geolocation; just go to Google.com in your browser and see if it redirects to a domain for your country.

Google becomes image

The Problem:

When you are running your or a clients blog on Blogger you want actionable intelligence from your site analytics.

Having every visitor to your site redirected by Google Geolocation or Geodomaining can turn your analytics into a mess.

The Solution:

If you want to bypass this there is a relatively simple solution as I shared with some friends who were dealing with this and discussing it on Twitter.

If you were sharing your blog URL as:

http://yourblogname.blogspot.com then instead share http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/ncr

Where the /ncr = No Country Redirect

This is a relatively easy fix and should see your analytics back as useful again in no time at all.

I haven’t discovered any downside to this. If you know of any I would love to hear about it.
