In spite of a rather convoluted installation process, this convenient application performs its one simple job quite well. As you're likely to infer from its name, Doc to Image Converter transforms Microsoft Word files into various image formats, including JPEG, BMP, and TIFF. For each format, you can select resolution and color depth, but that's the extent of available customization options. It's quite handy that the program appears as a self-explanatory toolbar in Word itself, but we think installing Doc to Image Converter could be an easier affair. For some unknown reason, you have to download an additional component from the Web to make the utility function; we don't understand why this additional software wasn't included in the main installer package. Happily, the program worked just fine in our tests and demonstrated good speed. Webmasters are likely to find this application to be a useful download.
