I am trying to make a collage with a bunch of pictures.

I got several images from the web, pasted them into word doc.
Is there anyway I can convert these into a collage to use for a forum avatar?
I cannot get it into doc, any advice, please share.

Thanks.

Open the page in any Word document.
Click on [PrintScreen] aka [PrtScn]
Open in Paint.
Save as JPEG ????

I am only answering to the title of your message.

In the Word Document..

- Press Ctrl+A (Select All)
- Open up MS Paint
- Press Ctrl V (Paste)

This works with any modern version of Windows and Office.

I think Ctrl+A (for Select All) needs to be followed by Ctrl+C (for Copy).

You're right. I actually left out the Ctrl+C

- Press Ctrl+A (Select All)
- Press Ctrl+C (Copy)
- Open up MS Paint
- Press Ctrl V (Paste)

Windows clipboard can now contain metadata that helps applications of different formats (text vs image vs object) copy and paste back and forth.

Due to this, you can copy directly from Word and paste into MS Paint.

I have forgotten that many times myself. I'd go to the second app and try to paste only to find out the clipboard was empty. Sometimes it's OK to be picky.

I'd ask why you're using Word to do this?

Use an image editor, there is lot of free ones available.

GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program

Paint.NET - Free Software for Digital Photo Editing

Certainly. I need people who know what they're doing (like you) to compensate for the fact that I'm absent-minded.
