Screen Capture of a complete email message

  howard64 12:50 19 Feb 2011

I have a Hotmail email which I have to scroll down to read it all. I would like to use a Screen Capture to pick it all and then save as a jpg. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can use free photo editing software to do this. It involves taking two (or more) separate screenshots & joining them together.

I usually use click here for this. If you need the steps involved just ask. G

Copy paste into note pad -select all - reuce font size - print screen - open your photo (paint) software - paste in the screen and save as ???.jpg

FB's method is easier, but if you need to save exactly as displayed on screen (without editing/formatting), then you'll want to use my method. G

Ashampoo Snap 4 - 40 day trial from here click here

Ashampoo Magical Snap adds an expandable toolbar to the top of your window that lets you capture entire Web pages or specific selections. It also captures desktop and window screenshots--basically anything that appears on your screen.

Can be saved as PNG,BMP,JPG,PDF,APCDOC

I have used this for several years and found it to be excellent for my personal needs.

Good find northumbria61. I forgot that I actually have the previous free version (when they were running the offer) that does most of what the latest version does click here. G

Well, the Ashampoo free offer's still on. Visit click here, enter ASH-111PR in the coupon code field & click on 'Get downloads now'. Four more good free programs offered there as well.

We'll get there - eventually ;-)! G

After you capture what you want how do you then post it on here.
Have you still got to use Photobucket or something like that.
