How to make a text box into an image file?



I was wondering if there was a way to convert a text box on ms word 07 into
an image file such as jpeg? Any help will be appreciated.

There are a bunch of ways. One is to right click the outside border of the
text box and choose Copy. Then, press Ctrl+Alt+V (Paste Special) and choose
one of the picture options--Picture (Enhanced Metafile) gives good results

If you simply want a picture in your Word file rather than the text box,
you're done. If you actually want a file, then following some version of the
next steps:

Right click the newly inserted picture and choose Copy.

Open Windows Paint or some other graphics program and paste the contents of
the clipboard. If prompted to resize the area reserved for the picture, say

Now, choose File Save As, and you're done.
