Word Preview Image

Is there a way to create and/or retrieve a preview image of a word document using Aspose.Word?


Not yet, but we are working on viewing and printing control where this will be possible. Please check back in 2-3 momths or so.

Did this ever get implemented?

It is implemented to some extent in Aspose.Word.Viewer Beta which is part of normal installation of Aspose.Word. See the demo project and output to the viewer.

We are happy to tell you that the new Rendering Engine has replaced the “old Viewer Beta”. The Rendering Engine can print, save as images or draw onto .NET Graphics object any document page.

Please see Aspose.Words documentation to learn more about new features.

Saving to image

In additional, new Rendering engine allows you to convert Word document to PDF directly (without using Aspose.Pdf).

Saving to Pdf

The latest version of Aspose.Words is available for download from downloads section or from NuGet
