Default Word Images to PS

I am working on a journal in ID 3 (Windows). All the incoming files are in Word. Several include embeded images. I am certain most of them were copied from some web site and the chances of the author having higher resolution version is almost nil.

I wanted to get the images into PS to make them grayscale, then do upscaling and sharpening. Of course copy from Word and paste into PS does not work as one would expect. The images appear to be 256 color! But I did discover that pasting into ID preserves the color and copy from ID to PS also preserves color. There is normally some extra white space, but I have to edit in PS anyhow.

Does anyone know a better way?
