How to convert shapes in word document programtically to image?

Hi

Can you give me suggestions on how to convert shapes in word document programtically to image?

We need this because we need to convert word document with shapes to PDF.

but as pdf does not support shapes at present(discussed with Aspose.Pdf team),

we need to manually convert shapes in word to image and then go for pdf conversion.

Thanks

Thank you for your interest in Aspose products.

Currently there is no way to convert any vector shape to raster. When you are converting DOC to PDF some shapes are supported. There are about 200 different autoshapes in MS Word and we don’t support all of them. If you’d like to export some particular shapes and they are not supported yet please let me know. Let’s consider extending their set. Just attach here the test document with shapes you’d like to have and I’ll make an estimate whether I can do this fast or not.

Regards,
