Assuming you're using an M$-Windows variant you should consider -graph
export path/to/file.emf, as(emf)- or -graph export path/to/file.wmf,
as(wmf)- as you should then be able to resize images easily (in fact
you should be able to do this to any inserted image within word, not
sure if thats possible if pasting things in though and don't have
access to Word to check).

See -man graph export- for more details/help.
