Hi,
Here's a suggestion:

Save the Word document file as HTML. Then catalog the resulting image files
using a DAM (digital assets management) program. Then use that program's
file comparison tools to find like (or identical) files. I think I could do
this using Photoshop Elements 5 but I haven't tried it. I'm itching to try
out Lightroom.

And, there's the possibility of www.riya.com. But... pay attention to the
"Grant of License" notice in Riya's terms of use. (First use of humor in a
legal document that I ever saw.)

I loved it when (at a major computer manufacturer where I used to work) we
put the names of the graphic files into the document. I think this was done
with an option in the tool we were using (Arbortext Adept with an
internally-developed information development workbench). Writer heaven.

Once the graphic is put into Word, the source name, if it was inserted from
a source, is not available. Often, graphics are just pasted in the
document, so there is not a filename. You can view thumbnails in Windows
Explorer and compare the pics to your document. You can also copy the pics
in the document and paste them in a graphics program to save them as new
graphics. If you want a list of just the graphic names based on caption
names, if that would help, then generate a Table of Figures from your Word
document.
