    Word 2003 - JPEG transparent background problem

    Hey guys. Need urgent help. I have an image in .jpeg extension which I need to embed in Word 2003. The image is having transparent background but when I embed it in Word, the transparent area gets turned into black automatically which I don’t want.

    Can anyone please tell me what could be the reason and how can I fix this? Many thanks in advance

    As far as I know, transparency is not supported in jpeg images. How can you say your image is having transparent background? You will need to edit and change the image format to .gif or .png extensions which are best compatible with transparent background images. And then embed them to your word file.

    Instead of editing and changing the extension, I think you can also do it directly from Word itself. Try out the below steps:
    Insert=>Picture=>
    View=>Toolbars=>Picture > transparency tool

    I have Word 2007 and I go to View but there is no Toolbars choice.
