Default Embed a map into a word document based on an address?

Hi there



Is it possible using an address to embed a map from either google maps or microsoft etc ? I have unique addresses and would love a map to mailmerge those into the individual documents based on a given address.

Any help much appreciated. Its to show parents where their kids can get a bus from for their first day of school.

Only if you've saved those maps as pictures on your PC and they're referenced in your data source.

Saving that google map.
What is the best way to get the sharpest image?

Make it as big as possible on screen.
Clip! Nope.
Print Screen. Nope. Still fuzzy
Paste in Photoshop the specs are
3000x1900 at 72dpi. This is the problem. The dpi.

Suggestion?

Unfortunately, the best you'll ever do via screen capture is a screen-resolution image. You can boost that by zooming in & capturing different parts of the image then stitching them together in a graphics app.

The dpi, per se, reported by Photoshop isn't the issue, since you can scale the image down. A 3000x1900 image scaled to 10in wide in Word would have a 300dpi print resolution; more than enough for most printed documents.
