I have a document with hundreds of images. When I save the first image (right click and save picture) it ends up with a good resolution as shown below:

enter image description here

However, when I save the document as Web Page, Filtered, all the images end up really low-res. Here's the exact same image afterwards:

enter image description here

I've tried the following options in the Save As dialog with no luck:

  • In Tools > Web Options... > Pictures > Target Monitor I've set the Pixels Per Inch to the highest value, 120.
  • In Tools > Compress Pictures > Target Output I've set it to Print (220 ppi).

Any ideas would be appreciated.

If what you really want to do is display the document on a kindle, you can print/save the word document as a PDF, and then use MobiPocketCreator to turn it into a file that the kindle can read.

Kindle 2 and up support PDF natively.

I'll give it a shot, but do you know what it does to the Arabic? – Abdullah Jibaly Jun 18 '12 at 8:31
Nice suggestion! I should have tried emailing this to a Kindle (as a PDF) earlier but for the most part it looks great without much changes. – Abdullah Jibaly Jun 18 '12 at 8:42
So it doesn't look like Mobipocket Creator is working... I give the PDF file (same one I sent to Kindle) but it's not generating the .mobi file from the PDF. Do you know of any other options? – Abdullah Jibaly Jun 18 '12 at 9:40
Does this link help? – soandos Jun 18 '12 at 9:44
Also, it seems to me that the PDF rendering technology and the ebook rendering software are mutually exclusive. PDFs are not meant to dynamically reflow so it probably won't help me that Arabic shows up in the PDF. I'll keep you posted on what I find though. – Abdullah Jibaly Jun 18 '12 at 9:45

Any ideas would be appreciated.

You wrote "any ideas" so I'm assuming you mean any.

If you can transcribe it into text, that will work best. It does require that the person reading the resulting web page has a suitable font containing those characters, however most people have Arial Unicode which covers a large number of scripts.

If you can use OCR, that might help with the transcription task.


Kindle's proprietary AZW format supports Arabic script - so you may be able to convert Word documents containing Arabic text into Kindle documents by using Amazon's online conversion tools (for which you pay a small fee) - the resulting AZW document being delivered by email to the Kindle device.

That's a good point, it won't work for this case though since I need the Arabic to be in an image so it can be displayed on a Kindle. – Abdullah Jibaly Jun 17 '12 at 22:08
Just for further clarification, it actually is already text in Word, and I'm using a macro to copy and then paste-special it into an image. – Abdullah Jibaly Jun 17 '12 at 22:09
