Windows Movie Maker

This may be a simple question but I just can't find the answer! I want to transfer some pictures I have pasted on a Word document onto the storyboard of WMMaker. I don't have any problem with transferring/importing videos.

  eedcam 19:07 24 Feb 2010

I'd guess you would have to get it back in a suitable format say jpeg if you pasted into word why cant you jus import the originals

  Duncanf 20:10 24 Feb 2010

Thanks for response. The original pictures were already in a powerpoint presentation that came in an email. I couldn't see a way of checking their format at that stage. I copied and pasted each picture into a Word dcoc thinking I could then paste each individually into the WMM storyboard. I'm afraid pasting them is not working for WMM. I also tried to get them into My Pictures without success thinking I could then transfer them into WMM. I'm on Windows XP Pro.

Thanks, eedcam. I've now Print Screened, cropped image to size but how do I get it into the Windows Movie Maker storyboard ? I've tried to paste it with no success. Will it be in JPEG format at this point?

After cropping in "Paint", select: file > save as and notice at the bottom of the "Save As" window, is a box entitled "File Name".
It will probably say something like "Untitled.jpeg", which confirms the format.
If you want to change that, see line below entitled "Save as Type" click the down arrow at the right hand side and select the file type you want.
Before hitting "Save" check the top box in the window and navigate to your prefered folder.

In Movie maker, in the left hand pane, under "Tasks" > "Import" select "Pictures" and navigate to the folder and file that you have just saved in paint, it will then appear in the centre pane, from where you can drag it onto the storyboard at the apropriate position.

That's it fixed and images now in storyboard! Thank you both for clear instructions for an OAP!!
I had never used Paint before so it's downloaded and will be a valuable asset.
Many thanks again!
