  • Is it possible to extract all images and shapes present in word document into a jpeg file using Open XML SDK?

  • Hi Leemanto,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum. not all drawings or images can be extracted. Some of build in graph can't be extracted from document via Open Xml. The graph which insert by Customer can be extracted.

    Have a good day,

  • Hi Leemanto,

    I have no resource about what your want. However It's easy to found out whether the picture is a customized image via search whether there have ImagePart in the Wordprocessing Document.

    Have a good day,
