Convert JPG to DOCX

Direct conversion from a JPG file to DOCX is not possible because JPG is a raster image format and DOCX is a text document file format. Alternative conversion options are extracting text information via OCR or inserting JPG image into the DOCX file. Let's see below the characteristics of each format:

DOCX: Microsoft Office Open XML since 2007 Microsoft employs a DOCX file format, which is created by using Office Open XML. The format is a zip file containing the text in the form of XML, graphics, and other data that can be translated into a sequence of bits using patent-protected binary formats. At first it was assumed that this format would replace the doc, but both formats are still used today. The benefit of having XML open is that it is capable of being read by applications, software and Internet platforms. However, to open it with a version of Microsoft Word prior to 2007, it would require converting the DOCX to a normal DOC format. These types of files improve data management and recovery. Any application that supports XML can access and work with DOCX. The DOCX format usually has much more advanced security standards than its predecessor and therefore the information is stored in XML and is much more secure.

JPG: It is an image compression format, both in color and in grayscale, with high quality. The JPG extension was assigned to such compressed image files. Many photos and web graphics are saved in JPG. To compress many bitmaps these are saved in JPG, which makes it easy to transfer and download these files on the Internet. The JPG format is based on the 24-bit color palette: the higher the level of compression applied to create the JPG file, the greater the decompression effect on the image quality.

To do JPG to DOCX conversion, it is best to use an online conversion service, as these avoid having to install software on your PC or MAC.

Alternatively you can just open DOCX file in Microsoft Word offline or online version and insert JPG file into it.
