Posterizing After Copy From MS Word Into PhotoShop?

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by (PeteCresswell), Feb 27, 2006.

  1. I'm trying to set up an MS Word document for somebody to use in creating a web
    site prototype.

    The idea is that they're comfortable with Word and can insert various pix into
    the document, type blocks of text, re-arrange things and so-on and so-forth.

    Then, when they're done, I take the MS Word doc and use it as a basis for
    creating a web page for them.

    But when I copy one of the inserted JPEGS from my sample and paste it into
    PhotoShop, it gets posterized pretty badly.

    Anybody know a workaround?

    Check you color management settings in PhotoShop,
    and make sure that PhotoShop is set to warn you and
    ask you about color space conversion when pasting.

    If you don't know what color space was used for
    the JPG, the posterization could be the result of
    an incorrect conversion or assignment between the
    JPG's color space and your working space in

  3. You can extract the original pictures at their full quality quite
    easily, use Word's save as HTML option, and it will put all the original
    unaltered images in a folder.
