I recently had a client who asked for some business cards using Avery Template 8371. Although the images showed up fine on my Windows 2008 for Mac saved as a .docx file, when saved as a .doc file for the clients pc version of word, the images changed to black boxes.
“Humph!” I said scratching my head. I saved them as .jpgs, high enough quality to be printed on their own office printer. What could possibly be the problem.
I did a little research and this is what I found:
Word doesn’t like .jpgs saved from a cmyk photo documents (like photoshop)
So I went back into my photoshop image, changed the image mode to rgb, resaved as a .jpg (and unchecked the “embed color profile”. I then reinserted the images into the word document and VOILA it looked and saved just fine.
