Default Inserting image into Word

I have a PDF document which has an image. I want to transfer the image from PDF into docx document. How can I do it with highest quality? I screenshot of PDF image, save it as JPG and inserted it in Word document.
1- Is it the best way?


2- When the image is inserted in Word document, if I make inserted image smaller, does the quality of it become lower or the quality does not change by making image smaller?

It depends...
If I were doing this, I would first zoom the pdf so the image has as much of your screen as possible, then do the screen capture and edit it in an image editing application. In that application, size it to the size you want in your Word document. Then import it.

I use SnagIt for my screen captures. It includes a good editor. A free trial is available for download. A good free program for editing/conversion is Irfanview.

The more conversions something goes through, the more distortion you get. With Word 2013 you might also try opening the pdf directly from within Word.

Since you already have Word 2013, simply open the pdf and copy the image from there and paste it into the Word document. You cannot possibly get better quality than that. Simply zooming in and doing a screen-shot cannot improve the quality; all it can do is add pixels.

I use snagit to. I make a screenshot, edit in snagit, save as jpg file and finally insert into Word.
But snagit has not sizing tool to change the sizes of photo. It is my question what do you mean with "size it to the size you want in your Word document."?

Your original post said only that you needed to:

It said nothing about editing the image. So this isn't a Word problem at all. Regardless, you can open the PDF in Word, then copy the image from there and paste it into your image editor.
