    a bitmap image ???

    i dont know

    I just go into paint

    copy it whilst paint is still open

    and then paste into word

    all images are BMP in paint naturally

    Are you using a bitmap image? I think that's the native image for Word.

    yes

    but when I resize , its just an estimate of what the original picture looked like

    it is usually one or two pixels bigger or smaller than the original

    how do i find out the resolution in word

    Well unless you figure out the resolution used by word, and then resize accordingly in paint, thats just how it works.
    Last time I used that process I remember it not really being that time or effort intensive...

    thats what I did

    copied it to word, Then I resized it in word.

    I use the classic 2003 version

    It's just a nuisance having to do it,

    its not that simple.
    the image is being scaled into the resolution of the document.
    just because it looks a certain size on the screen within Paint, doesnt mean that it will be that same size within a word document.
    Either resize the image first in paint, or (depending on the version of word, ) use Word to resize.
    What version of Office are you using?

    When I copy an image into Microsoft word it resizes smaller

    Okay

    Situation : I have image in Paint

    I copy it

    Paste it into Microsoft Word

    It is smaller than original image


    So I have to manually resize it ?


    Is there a way i can just copy it straight in without resizing it ?
    thank you
