How to save embedded images separately when converting from DOCX to HTML

Is there a way to save the embedded images within a file being converted so that the HTML references them as a JPG/PNG available from the file system?


GroupDocs.Conversion for .NET doesn’t support such a feature. However, we have opened the following new ticket(s) in our internal issue tracking system and will deliver their fixes according to the terms mentioned in Free Support Policies.

Hi Atir, thanks for the prompt response. I think for larger documents having the embedded resources extracted and downloadable separately would be an advantage, If you are open to bright ideas I have the following suggestions:

  • For linked resources name them with the MD5 or similar hash so that the same content has the same name, this will enable CDNs/Proxy servers to more aggressively cache content and would mean faster load times
  • Have a size limit parameter under which embedded resources would stay embedded. It might be faster to load a 500k document than 10 separated.

Thank you!


Our investigation into the scenario has revealed that GroupDocs.Conversion does not have the capability to support it. However, we will take a look at your suggestions. But we cannot share any ETA when this could be investigated/implemented.

Atir, that’s absolutely fine. The previous solution (also OutsideIn based) was doing this. There are some speed advantages for smaller files but I notice larger documents are loading slower. I am in no rush.

Thanks again!


You are welcome.
