3. Browse for media content. Here, media files are present under ‘\word\media\’ folder. The sequence of the embedded images in the document are preserved.


4. Extract the images to any folder of your choice.

Images Extracted


Use the same technique to download the images from any website by copying-pasting the webpage to a word doc and then extract the images. This method is better than saving the page to the hard disk using browser ‘Save As WebPage’  option and manually searching for the media content from the HTML reference folder.
