Nerdy internet question

    How do you save a webpage as a graphic element, like a jpeg? All I can do is save it as a webpage, and it won't let me change it.

    Best way to make a screenshot of the web browser and save that as a JPEG. Here's how:

    MAC OS X

    Hit Apple-Shift-4. A little crosshatch will appear.
    Click and drag to define the area you want to screenshoot.
    As soon as you release the mouse button, you'll hear a little camera-shutter sound (if your sound is on.)
    On your desktop will be a file called "Picture 1." Open that picture in Photoshop and save it as a JPEG.


    Select the window you want to screenshoot and hit Ctrl-Alt-PrintScreen.
    Open Photoshop and create a new file.
    Go to Edit --> Paste (or hit Ctrl-V.) Your screenshot will appear.
    Go to File --> Save As and save it as a JPEG.

    When I say Photoshop, of course, I mean the imaging application of your choice (or the one you have available.)

    Done and done (took me a while because my laptop keyboard had the print screen button hidden with another one). Much thanks.
