Cool size of imported images ???

I have an issue inserting images in a Word 2019 text document !!!
This is what happens:
I am trying to set up a quality document ready for industrial printer and I have a very strange result when I try to insert images in my text.


The available images are all .JPG with a size of about 1000Ko and when I insert them , reduce and config them to fit correctly in the text the remaining size is about 300Ko which is still OK for printing.
BUT... when I save the document with all inserted images and than open it again later for continuing my work ... suddenly all inserted images appear severely cropped with remaining sizes of about 30Ko (1/10th of original) insufficient for a quality impression !
What's going on ?
How can I save my work without loosing the quality ???
PLEASE can someone help ?

I am unsure what a Ko is as a unit.


see this support page.

If at all possible, edit your images in a different program so that when inserted into Word the are sized and cropped exactly as you want them. then insert them into Word.

Your description suggests you have Word's image compression activated, which gives a maximum resolution of 220ppi. See under File|Options|Advanced>Image Size and Quality.

... with this change in the options I now have to start over all my image import work again and since there are about 200 images this gives me a lot of extra work.
So I wanted to ask if there is a possibility (macro or other) for all the transferred images to be automatically set to the desired dimensions and style (which is the same for all)?

For bulk insertion of images into a given location, see: https://www.msofficeforums.com/word-...html#post47919

For the insertion of images at random selected locations, it is certainly quite possible to have a macro format them all the same. See, for example:
https://www.msofficeforums.com/word-...tml#post140329
Although that macro only reformats a single, selected, image, one could be written to reformat all images in a document. That said, you should seriously consider re-sizing the images to the equivalent of 300-360ppi/dpi at the final size before inserting them; otherwise you'll merely end up with serious file bloat.

That seems great and it would certainly save a lot of work and time for me to insert the .jpg images (about 200 in total) that way, but... I am very sorry not to know at all how to write in VB .

Would it PLEASE be acceptable to write for me such a small macro considering all the pictures (scanned at 300DPI) I have to import one by one must be configured with following 3 basic criteria:

- Layout: with text wrapping/move with text/behind text
- Size: crop/height = 3,5cm
- Style: Picture border/weight/1/2pt

That would be really SUPER !!!
Thanks a lot !

Try:
Code:
Sub Demo()
Dim iShp As InlineShape, Shp As Shape
With ActiveDocument
  For Each iShp In .InlineShapes
    iShp.ConvertToShape
  Next
  For Each Shp In .Shapes
    With Shp
      .LockAspectRatio = True
      .Height = CentimetersToPoints(3.5)
      .LockAnchor = True
      .WrapFormat.Type = wdWrapBehind
      With .Line
        .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(0, 0, 0)
        .Weight = 0.5
        .Visible = True
        .Style = msoLineSingle
      End With
    End With
  Next
End With
End Sub

Hello @macropod,
This is GREAT... I managed to import those VB lines into a personalised 'button' and it works perfectly !
However with one click ALL images in the doc are affected and that was NOT exactly what I wanted because there are a series of illustrations who must remain as they are... It would be much more easier for me if the macro command was only applied on ONE selected image at a time...
Could you PLEASE tell me what VB lines I have to delete to get that result ?
Thanks a lot !!!

Simply change:
ActiveDocument
to:
Selection
and change:
.Shapes
to:
.ShapeRange

Hello @macropod,
Would it please be possible to help me resolving a problem I encounter importing images in a Word 19 textfile ? I lost already 2 DAYS (!) and still did not found the error !...
As I told you previously I have to insert some hundreds of jpg images in the document and I found out that the layout option I chosed previously (Layout: with text wrapping/move with text/behind text) - (you made a macro for me) is finally NOT very convenient for me and I decided to change the layout option into 'Inline with text'...
I am now trying to apply this on each image, one by one, and it give me a much nicer document, BUT..... converting them some of the images (about 20%) disappear partially under the text and I only see about 2mm of the bottom board of them... I can select and move them but it looks like I only move an empty image !!!... ????????
Can You PLEASE, PLEASE help me ?
Many Thanks !
Yves

That's most likely because the paragraphs you're adding the images to have a fixed line height. Changing the line height to anything other that 'Exactly' should resolve that issue.

This is GREAT, Paul !

I found that for those badly inserted images the Paragraph alignment parameters where set to 'justified' and the Line Spacing to 'Exactly 10pt' and resetting these to (Centered' and 'Single' suddenly the images became fully visible...
Thank you so much !!!

... a final request please:
would it be possible to rearrange the macro you sent me previously with another layout option: 'Inline with text' and also to include these Paragraph parameter settings and to center the content ?

This would save me a lot,lot of work !

Presumably, since you're now working with inlineshapes, the code would become:
Code:
Sub Demo()
Dim iShp As InlineShape
With Selection ' or ActiveDocument
  For Each iShp In .InlineShapes
    With iShp
      .LockAspectRatio = True
      .Height = CentimetersToPoints(3.5)
      With .Line
        .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(0, 0, 0)
        .Weight = 0.5
        .Visible = True
        .Style = msoLineSingle
      End With
      With .Range.ParagraphFormat
        .Alignment = wdAlignParagraphCenter
        .LineSpacingRule = wdLineSpaceSingle
      End With
    End With
  Next
End With
End Sub
