Question about pasting a table from word doc.

Recommended Posts

I want to convert a table from .doc to an image file.


If I screen print it and edit in paint.net the quality deteriorates.


I copied the table from the doc file and directly pasted in paint.net


This is what i get after pasting it, post-123062-0-10708900-1381744581_thumb.


My question:


How do I get a white background for this table? 

I want the quality same as you can find in the word doc.

I used paint bucket but again the quality doesn't look the same.


Please help me out, I am new to this software.

Thank you.

Here's where you can use the power of layers!  :-)  From where you are in that screen shot, click the "Add Layer" button ( :AddNewLayer:)  in the Layers window, then select that new layer and move it underneath your existing transparent background layer with the "Move Layer Down" button ( :MoveLayerDown:).  Now choose a color in the color window (you said you wanted white), select the entire layer (using Ctrl+A), and press the Backspace key to fill the entire layer with your chosen color.


As for your quality question, I'm not sure what you mean.  Everything seems to be in pretty good quality.  Try those steps and see how you fare.

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.

If you do PrintScreen in Word, you lose a lot of image quality.

I suggest you to save the document as a PDF and then use Adobe Acrobat to save it as PNG.

Adobe Acrobat allows you to save images at resolutions of 300, 600, 1200, 2400dpi and quality (and size in kB) will increase accordingly.
