When I drag or "Insert->Picture->From file" a .jpg into a Word 2004 document, it shows up as a solid black rectangle, appears as a solid black rectangle when I Print Preview, and prints as a solid black rectangle.

The jpg is not, fyi, an image of a solid black rectangle.

Am I doing something wrong? How do I get a photo into a Word document in Word 2004? It was an easy drag and drop procedure in XP.

Sounds like a loose nut behind the keyboard.

Seriously though, I just followed the exact procedure you describe and it works just fine. Have you tried more than just one particular JPG? What happens in NeoOffice?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

cwa -- It happens with all jpgs that are sent to me by my company. They open in Preview just fine, but they are black rectangles in Word. If I save them as png's in Preview and then convert the png back to a jpg it works fine. But it's a bloody annoyance.

And I don't care if you tried to help, I'm not giving you any rep so there!

Weird - I don't get it. The only difference I can think of off the top of my head is that I have all image file types set to view with CocoViewX instead of Preview. I may experiment with switching back to Preview and see if there's a difference.

EDIT: Nope, no difference. Have you tried dragging the image and dropping it on the document?

Not even for the "loose nut behind the keyboard" comment? I thought it was funny....

You "would have." I "didn't." Different tense.

Humor apparently not quite as dry as the air in Arizona. :ninja:

I know I'll lose, but you didn't because you wouldn't have if you could've. I "would've" because I would have if I could!

On the contrary, I read his post and before I knew it my little mouse cursor was darting for the rep button. That's when I remembered I couldn't, so I didn't!

*sigh* The best man won. Actually, the man won.

I find myself looking for the little checkmark all the time as I read and laugh!

I am having that same problem. When I insert a .jpg file, it turns the entire picture black. I have to convert my file to a .tiff and then I can use it. It is very annoying.
