    I have an MS Word 2003 .doc file with 4 photos - 3 of which I don't want.

    If I open that document in GIMP it cuts off 2 photos and 60% of the photo I want saved before cropping.

    If I try to open the file or that photo in Irfanview, it gives me an error message.

    If I just copy that photo into MS Paint it comes out looking like a cartoon image.

    I'm not sure how to isolate that photo so the 3 photos can be cropped out of the photo I want or crop the photo of just the photo I want so it can be saved as a separate file?

    Is there any easy way to do this in GIMP?

    Thanks so much.

    Does that imply that you no longer (never had) a MS Word application to open the document?

    Try the free LibreOffice, that should open an old-ish Word doc
    https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/

    Locate the image, click on it to select, right-click brings up a dialog, one option is save image

    Hi Rich,

    I have Libre Office but when I open the MS file with the 4 photos side-by-side it only shows 2 of the photos - and not the one of the 4 I wish to save.

    Oh, That looks like a problem.

    Have you tried moving the visible images in the hope that the other two are hidden underneath?

    In the assumption that the doc file is not corrupt, you could try an online conversion

    There is this one, but I have never used it, so up to you.

    Try converting to PDF. Gimp should open that.
