    microsoft word: attaching image = red X
    Okay for some reason when I attach my company's logo in Microsoft word it comes up as a large red X. The picture is saved as a .jpg and when i click on it it opens up in preview just fine. if i save the document and send it to a windows machine the picture shows up on there but here is my problem. If attach the image on my mac i get the red and and if i print i get the red x printed but if i send it to a windows machine it prints just fine. I was wondering if this is a preferences problem with word or something else? anyone else had this problem?

    Are you attaching the actual image, or a url to an image on the internet?

    Try opening it in Preview and then save as something else (tiff, png file...).

    okay it worked when i saved it as a .gif, but what should I do when other people in the office send me letters and other documents with our logo on it because it will show up as the red X and I dont want to find the exact logo they have there and re-save it as a .gif and then try to resize it to what they have in the document. is there a better way for it to recognize this image? and why is it giving me a red X
