Word file to jpeg via paint

Word file to jpeg via paint I have been doing this so my notes can be viewed with photos on digital photo frame. Problem - when word file is more than half A4 size, Paint says to increase page size. All I can find is zoom, which increases page AND increases font size. Any ideas?

word - pdf - jpg perhaps

IrfanView 4.2 (if on XP) has tools via F12

How about just open the picture in paint, use paint's text tool to add notes to it, then save it again?

Thanks, I may not have been clear. I'm puting the notes as a photo (jpeg) so they come up on foto frame which can't handle text. Um, pdf? could you add details please.

if you save the text file as pdf then save [convert] that to jpg it splits it into pages, at least it did when i did.

Will download IrfanView Thank you for your help

geek_tabitha, Dec 2, 3:40 pm

grab the 'irfanview plugins' while you are at the site too.

Do a print screen and open it in paint then save it as a jpeg

In Irfanview, do Image, Add Canvas (this adds a rectangle at the bottom edge, or any edges of the image to add text onto)
