"Save as Picture" saves images in low resolution

Last Updated: February 12, 2020

ISSUE

When using the right-click option Save as Picture to save an image from a Word document, the image is saved in very low resolution.

STATUS: FIXED

This issue has been fixed in version 16.0.12527. If you have not updated to the latest version, you can still work around this issue. Copy the image from the Word document and paste it into a PowerPoint document. From PowerPoint, you can use the Save as Picture option to save a full resolution image.
