Default Can I dertermine the files types of images in an existing Word document?

Background:

There is a large report containing hundreds of TIFF-file-photo-images.
The TIFFs are brutally large, creating widespread havoc. The person who
created the document begins the process of replacing the TIFFs with
JPEGs.

Now:
The person mentioned above is no longer available. Now I have a report
containing some combination of JPEG and TIFF files, and the TIFFs are
wrecking machines.

Problem:
I do not know which images were replaced (from TIFF - JPEG) and which
were not.

Is there any way - any reasonable way - for me to identify the
original format of the images, so that I can identify and change only
those that were originally TIFF? Or, should I just accept the fact that
total replacement is the only option?

Hi Gary

Try http://www.gmayor.com/extract_images_from_word.htm

If that doesn't help, then you may need to replace them all.

Hope this helps.

You can look at the document structure with the script editor -
alt+shift+f11 - The tifs will have been converted to png, so it's worth a
try. You should be able to see what images are where in the document.
