Why use Skitch?
Authored by: sapporo on Oct 15, '08 07:59:05AM

Using Skitch would only help while you're initially producing the Office document. In that case, I'd rather save the images to disk and import them into Office from there (avoiding the problems with drag&drop).

Peter Clark's blog describes a method to fix the images after you finished your Office document and found out the images won't display on a PC. Of course you could also save and import the images at that stage, but using the redeye remover is much more convenient.

Unfortunately, the redeye remover is no longer available in Office 2008 for Mac (or at least I couldn't find it). I guess there's a different tool that produces the same effect, but I never took the time to research that. If anyone knows, please leave a comment.

I don't think the redeye tool is necessary. I think any of the graphic editing tools will fix the issue. Even just double-clicking the image within the Office document and clicking a few buttons should make the "magical changes" necessary.

I've also found that using Insert->Picture from the menus will not result in the problem. The problems seems to occur from copying-and-pasting or dragging images into the document. YMMV, however.
