Question Line appearing over left and top of image when saving

Hi,



Has anyone had an issue with MS Word 2007 which having a border type line on the left side of the image?

It's not a full border at all, it's like a half border that is partially on the left side and on the top of the image. The only thing I do is insert an image, click save, and then all of a sudden this crazy black border line shows up around the left side of the image and top of the image. Some images do this, some do not and I'm not sure why.

If needed, I'll do a snap shot of it to help if no one knows what I'm referring to, just let me know.

Thanks

I suggest you upload a screenshot so that others have a better understanding.

Did you do a right click and checked out format picture? Anything there?

Same problem just started on my system as well. Easiest work around I've found is to right click the image, select "change picture..." and select the image file again. This will get rid of the black lines until you save again. I go through that procedure just before printing.

I've tried compressing images using Word's built-in tool with no luck. I've also tried JPG and PNG versions of the same image in addition to reducing the image dimensions (pixels) in Photoshop. Nothing is consistently getting rid of the problem so far.

The problem is being reported on Experts-Exchange as well, but the post I found doesn't have a permanent solution. One suggested work around was to crop .01" from the top and left sides. That seems to work for me.

I'm a member there and will report back here if there's any other solutions posted.

I've never had that problem, but I was going to suggest the same thing. If the pseudo borders are within the picture's bounding box. Magnify to 500% and use Word's cropping tool to shave off the problem edges.

You don't even have to zoom in, just right-click the image and select "size". Then enter .01" in the left and top "crop from" boxes.

Hi,

I've had this same problem, but I've just removed the 'automatically perform basic compression on save' option and it seems to have stopped the black lines appearing after saving and re-opening the files. (I've only tried it twice so I'm not 100% on if it works in all situations!)

To do this, click on any picture in the document, go to the 'Format' tab click on the 'Compress Pictures' button, then click on 'Options' and deselect the 'automatically perform basic compression on save' option, then click 'OK' and then 'Cancel'... You can now try saving and re-opening the files and see if it has worked or not!

You have to do this for each document you have the problem with though!

Good Luck!

Very interesting. I had to navigate to the option a little differently. Do you know how to turn off automatic compression on save universally rather than just picture by picture?

I could just turn it off once on the document and it would apply to the whole document (even after closing and re-opening the doc). As for setting it to off as a default for all new documents... I had a quick look but unfortunately couldn't find anyway to do it.

It may be worth someone else looking too, as I doubt I've looked everywhere!!

Awesome, finally a real solution.

To make it permanent, you have to edit the registry. Here's the instructions I found:

http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00862.htm
Quote:
  1. Open registry editor (Start /Run and type Regedit)
  2. Go to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\P owerPoint\Options]
  3. Create a new Dword value named AutomaticPictureCompressionDefault
  4. Make sure that the value of the new Dword is 0
That page is for PowerPoint, but the same solution works for Word and Excel by following the same instructions and substituting Word and Excel when PowerPoint is referenced.

It worked without rebooting for me. I'm running Win 7 Pro 64bit. I created 32bit Dword values.

Default Black Line Under Your Picture In Word 2007

Hi all,

I have been searching for a solution to no avail and then 'BINGO' I had a brainwave... what if it was something to do with how the picture is positioned?

So I changed the picture position of the picture in the format tab and hey presto it disappeared. The picture has to be placed in front of the text.

How to do this:

1. Select picture(click on it).
2. Click on the format tab.
3. Navigate to the arrange section and select the 'position' icon. This is object position.
4. Click on it and then select 'more layout options'.
5. Now click on the option 'In front of text'.

And now your black line disappears.

Pheeeew! Hope that helps folks.
