How to Edit a Word Document in Photoshop


Adobe Photoshop is a powerful graphics editing program. Although Microsoft Word is an excellent Word processing tool with many graphics features, it can't match the graphics features of Photoshop. Unfortunately, Photoshop does not allow the direct import of Word documents into Photoshop. If you want to edit a Microsoft Word document in Photoshop, then you will have to use a workaround, which involves you saving the document as an image file.

Things You'll Need

  • Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft Paint
  • Photoshop
  • Open the document in Word.

  • Click on the "Windows" button, then click on "Print" and then click on "Print Preview."

  • Press the screenshot key on your keyboard, The screenshot key differs from keyboard to keyboard. Look for a "Print Screen" or "PrtSc" key.

  • Open Microsoft Paint.

  • Click "Edit" and then click "Paste" to paste the screen shot into Paint.

  • Click on "File" and then click on "Save As."

  • Save the file as an image file, including a JPEG or GIF.

  • Open Photoshop.

  • Open the image file in Photoshop.

  • Edit the document as you would a normal image file in Photoshop.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you want to edit a document that is more than one page long, take a screenshot of every individual page and then edit those individual pages in Photoshop.
