If I include a screenshot or a photo in a MS Word document, will it be stored internally in a lossy or a lossless format?

MS Word will not convert the picture so it will be kept in the format you already have it in.

Ok that explains what happens when I drag an image from Explorer to MS Word. What if I do Print Screen and then Ctrl+V? What format will be used internally for that? – Borek Jan 18 '11 at 9:34
That is better as a separate question as is not to do with Word – Mark Jan 18 '11 at 11:18
Replace "MS Word" with "some MS Office application" and I think the question is still valid. – Borek Jan 19 '11 at 8:19
The point is that it is not internal - Print Screen provides its own form separate from MS OFFice – Mark Jan 19 '11 at 12:55
