I have a .doc which I will convert in PDF. In this .doc I have an image.

When I convert the doc to PDF and then zoom it, the images became ugly pixel-ized.

I found a tool that converted my bitmap .png image to vectorial .PDF image.

Now how could I import the PDF image in MS Word (that finally I will convert to PDF once again)?

It isn't possible to insert PDF files into Word documents (I haven't tried Word 2010 yet, so I don't know if this has changed in Word 2010).

The only way to insert vector images into a Word document is by using the EPS (encapsulated postscript) file format.

Converting a PDF to EPS

Adobe Illustrator

Open the PDF file in Illustrator and save it as an EPS file.

Adobe Acrobat Professional

Open the PDF file in Acrobat Pro and then Export it to EPS

File > Export > Postscript > Encapsulated Postscript

Inkscape (Open source vector graphics program)

Open the PDF file in Inkscape and save it as an EPS file.

EPS is not the only way, Word supports WMF/EMF as well. – Karan Jun 5 '13 at 15:16
