Word to JPEG Conversion in Batch Mode
If you have multiple Word files to convert in bulk, no need to do this repetitive task manually. A good batch converter, such as DocuFreezer, can do the job for you and save you time. Just add several Word files to the List of files, select JPEG format, click the Start button, and the software will do the rest.
Printing multiple Word documents to JPEG
If you have batch printing software, you can easily convert several DOCX or DOC files to JPG in bulk, too. You’ll need to have two programs installed: Universal Document Converter and Print Conductor.
- Install Universal Document Converter and Print Conductor;
- Open Print Conductor;
- Add documents to the program’s List of Documents;
- Select Universal Document Converter in the list of printers;
- Click Printer Properties;
- Go to File Format, select JPEG Image, and click OK;
- Click Start Printing on the Print Conductor main window;
- Get the converted files in the “UDC Output Files” folder.
Disable “Save as” dialog pop-ups when batch printing to file
Where do the output files go? By default, Universal Document Converter asks where to save the output file and enter its name. If you have multiple files to convert, it can be unnecessary or time-consuming. To avoid “Save as” dialogs, select Use predefined location and filename in Universal Document Converter Printing Preferences:
Automate Conversion from Word to JPEG in the Office
You can automate the conversion of Word files to JPEG and take advantage of many extra features by using FolderMill. Based on so-called Hot Folders, it can simultaneously perform multiple file conversion or print jobs at once. Install FolderMill on the corporate server and pre-configure file conversion settings for all or certain types of files. They will be automatically converted into a selected format, e.g., JPEG, PDF, or other formats.

The Universal Document Converter can be used by software developers thanks to its public API and example codes. The functionality already existing in the program can be utilized to achieve other document conversion goals.
