Print to .jpg format


B

Bob O'Dyne

Is there a simple, *Win7-compliant* utility that will print to a .jpg
file? I used to use Snagit under WinXP but the program became so
bloated with "features" and unwieldy with "options" that I'm loathe to
install it on my Win7 machine.

I'm thinking along the lines of a Win7 gadget, perhaps. Is there such
a thing? I can't seem to find one.

Maybe this one that's included in Win7?

Download Irfanview. It's free and lightweight and a Swiss army knife
of image manipulation.

What exactly do you want to print? If you are looking for a screen capture
utility, I strongly recommend FastStone Capture

http://thedatalist.com/pages/Screen_Capture.htm#3

I normally use it to capture to clipboard, but it can be used to save to
file in any number of image formats, including JPG, PNG, BMP, others. It
is unobtrusive and very versatile.

or the Win 7 Snipping Tool under Accessories

What exactly do you want to print?
When I hit control-P in a program like Word, Excel, etc I'm presented
with a list of printer options: this printer, that printer, the fax,
and so on. I want one of those options to be an image file. This is
possible with WinXP and even with Vista: There are programs that
install a "virtual" printer that sends the output to an image file
(.jpg, .pdf, .tiff, .bmp etc). I have yet to find one that is certain
to work with Win7.

Snagit will but it's just too complex and unwieldy for my needs.

For what it's worth, I do use Win7's snipping tool for screen captures
and I like it very much. It's no good however when what I'm trying to
capture in a document or a page that doesn't all fit on the screen.

Have you considered 'print to PDF' or PS and then a conversion with
ghostscript?

One of the neat features of FastStone is that it can capture the entire
contents of a scrolled window.

You could try PDF Creator: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/


It installs a printer driver that can write out a .JPG file.

It is free software.

I use it regularly in Windows XP. I find that PDF output is flawless.
I just did a quick test of .JPG output, and it looked a bit "low rez"
to me. Perhaps there is a way to ask for more pixels. I did not take
the time.

The web page claims Windows 7 compatibility.

Don't know exactly what you're trying to do but have you tried printing to
the "Microsoft XPS Document Writer"? It saves the file as an .xps document
which is similar to a pdf file.

About all I can think of is to print the document to paper, then scan the
paper, then save it from the scanner software as a jpg file.

Probably less convenient that you would like.

OTOH, Google found this:
http://www.pdf-to-jpg.com/

So you could print to a PDF file with a utility such as CutePDF (there are
a few others), then convert the PDF with the above software.

I know nothing about the software - I just found it by Googling for "print
document as jpg".

You could Google for yourself and see if anything shows up that pleases
you.

Or Office Document imaging which saves as mdi (Microsoft's version of PDF)
or Tiff

I agree, Faststone is a very useful and powerful tool. I started using it
when I started running into problems with Viewprint Pro. I'm glad I
switched. On the other hand, Windows Snipping tool will do just about the
same thing as you want, which is capturing screen images, but if you are
talking about saving a document file or some such thing, what you are
looking for is a print to file option. I don't have enough information on
that. Try searching on Google for "Print to file" without the quotes. I
found a lot of useful information on Google, but you will have to weed out
the garbage.

Hope this helps, even a little.

Bullzip has a free pdf printer that I've used before.
Maybe that will help.

Before going to Office Home and Student 2007, I used CutePDF:

http://www.cutepdf.com/

The only caveat is that you also need to install free G{: Ghpostscript:

http://www.cutepdf.com/download/converter.exe

It installs as a printer so all you have to do is choose it as the
printer and it will save the file as a .pdf.

Office 2007 has the capability built in. It may be in earlier versions
as well, but I don't know about that...

I agree with David Arnstein's post- PDF Creator works well and has many
output formats to choose from. It also works very well with Windows 7- I
have installed and use it quite often with good results.

I often wonder if some of the people on the Internet suffer from V.D. or A.D.D. The guy asks how to create a JPG and many of you write about how he can create a PDF. Assuming English is your first language, perhaps you people can THINK before you REPLY. Google THINK to find out what that word means.
