Default Graphics resolution


I have charts that I created in Excel that I want to place in a Word document. However, I have never successfully embedded Excel charts as objects without a lot of issues so I've always pasted them as an image type.

Most recently I've pasted images into my document and they look immaculate upon pasting. I go back days later and notice they've lost their sharpness, as though they've been compressed and enlarged. I repaste the original image and they are fine again. Days later, same thing. Thinking they were JPEG artifacts I pasted them in as TIFFs. Again, looked good immediately but later not so good.

This is a formal document intended for a customer. I have to find what is causing this and stop it.

Ideas?

Have you tried BMP? That used to be the standard for Word.

No because in the past bmp files were HUGE.

The issue though (I don't think anyway) isn't the format, because the jpegs and tiffs import perfectly...it's over time I discover that at somepoint they were...messed with.

Problem is now the laptop hardrive crashed and took all my examples with it. Until my IT guy has the time to try and recover it, not much I can do.

You need a different solution to the problem entirely because pasting the image over and over would get old real fast! Not to mention the fact that your laptop crashed. Good grief hope you don't have a deadline to meet. I would recommend starting with a backup or file storage so that loosing examples isn't even an option, I never have time to be waiting on IT people. Our office uses http://www.fpweb.net/sharepoint-hosting/ and I have always been very happy. Also when you run into issues coworkers can see/ experience the same issues and work to resolve together. I have no idea what could be the problem without seeing myself. Good luck=)

Actually, the problem was fundamentally simple. the softeware I use to collect and/or edit images is IrfanView, a great tool. However, it had somehow been set to 75 dpi so when I pasted an image in, manipulated it for presentation, and then copied it to the clipboard for pasting into my report, it came in fuzzy. Not sure why it looked OK after pasting and bad later, but when I readjusted the DPI setting, the issue went away.
