TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
If you open the DOCs in Word 2007+, you can save them as DOCX files.
Then run 7Zip file manager to browse the contents of the DOCX archive
as a folder tree (you could also rename the file with a ZIP extension,
but 7Zip lets you open DOCX files directly.)
Navigate to one of the folders where the images are stored, and drag
them out. This keeps the files at full resolution without converting
InDesign may be able to open PDFs directly. You may even be able to
save the DOC as PDF and open them in InDesign.
