One of the problem I encounter with Microsoft Word while creating document (documentation, Knowledge base etc) is pasting images into Word is always a problem. The exact problem is, Word bloat (increases) the image and reduces the sharpness.
‘The Stig’ wallpaper in my laptop.
With a snipping tool, I have selected a portion of the Stig wallpaper and pasted in on Microsoft word. As you can see the size is increased (Word document viewing is set to 100%). This makes the pasted images in word lacks sharpness. You don’t want this in your documentation.
Using a ‘middle program’ solves this problem. I am using Paint.net (free applicati0n) for this. Let me explain.
Copy the desired area with snipping tool -> paste it in Paint.net -> press Ctrl + C
Now paste it in Word.
I dont know whether you can see this or not but the pasted image size in the Microsoft Word is 100% and no more bloated image.
