How do I convert an MS Word 2007 file into a JPG file?

I need a method that will work off-line for Windows XP, preferably that does not require installing software.

@Sathya The portable part might make it less of a duplicate, but you're probably right. – alex May 27 '10 at 13:21
Please don't use JPG for this. JPG is designed for photograph-like images, with every pixel a slightly different tone from the one next to it. A word document is usually 90% pure black and pure white. If you must convert to a bitmap image, use PNG. – rjmunro Jun 30 '10 at 8:54

The simplest way is using PDF Creator or something similar to it. It's free, it's offline and it's available for Windows XP. The only problem is that it's not portable, from what I know.

However, there's a second way, but it's a bit longer. You can save the documents as a PDF (Word 2007 has that option). Then, use PDF-Xchange to save the PDF as an image.

MS Word 2007 has "Save As PDF" tool download. If you have this, then you don't need any 3rd party software/ – kamleshrao May 27 '10 at 12:32
@kamleshrao You need third party software to save as jpg, which is what the OP wants. PDF Creator can save documents directly as jpg, that's why I recommended it. As for PDF-Xchange, it's useful if you have a PDF and want to save it as jpg. – alex May 27 '10 at 12:39
