Is there any free way to convert a word document to an image? I suppose you can print screen, but that is pretty painful.

Easiest way I would think is to install Bullzip PDF Printer and then go to the document, print it and change the settings to Image.

Bullzip FAQ -

Multiple output types supported: BMP, JPEG, PCX, PDF, PNG, and TIFF.

+1 for decent free PDF software. PDFCreator can also that. –  ta.speot.is Feb 1 '10 at 23:02
Easiest and probably the best way, +1. –  John T Feb 2 '10 at 17:45

What is so painful about a screen shot?

Faststone Capture provides for scrolling screen shots.

Version 5.3 is free and portable, it doesn't even have to be installed.

enter image description here

All it takes is pressing Ctrl + Alt in addition to PrtScrn, you can choose to save the capture as BMP, GIF, JPEG, PCX, PNG, TGA, TIFF or indeed PDF, it doesn't get much easier.

+1 Because this has the ability to automatically scroll through a full window to screenshot the parts that are not visible! –  Jeffrey Blake May 2 '13 at 19:33

Snagit takes a lot of the pain out of taking screenshots. I believe there is a 30-day free trial.
