Insert or embed images in HTML

Word to HTML offers you the option to embed your images in the HTML or to store them as separate image files uploaded via File Manager. Traditionally images have always been separate files from the HTML, but a new technique lets you directly embed the images into the HTML. The advantage of embedded images means you only have one HTML file so it can be convenient when pasting into a Content Management System for example.

Upload and convert your documents to HTML

One of the most powerful features of Word to HTML is that you can upload your document and have it automatically converted to HTML. We can convert the following formats:

  • Word files – doc and docx
  • PDF files
  • Rich text files (RTF)
  • Open document format (ODF)
  • Txt files

Embed images - Embed images in HTML (no need to have separate image files). This option is useful for small images but use with caution with large images. The image data will be embedded in your code so your HTML file will increase in size and complexity.

Full page mode - This option adds the <head> and <body> to HTML, you need this so the page displays correctly if you create standalone HTML pages. If you are pasting into a web-based system like Wordpress, Amazon, eBay etc. you will not need this option.

Fixed HTML - If you need your HTML to look exactly like your input document then tick fixed HTML option, but please be aware that fixed layout may not look great on mobile devices. It's useful when used as standalone HTML page or when shown in an <iframe>. This option enables Full page mode option which is required to correctly display fixed HTML page.
