    Hi all,

    Total web design newbie here, but I'm helping out with a (WinXP) computer kiosk at a museum display. We've been trying to display (saved) websites, but the application running on the Kiosk (ESRI ArcReader) crashes every time it tries to launch a browser to open the saved web pages.

    Is the there a way to export a web page essentially as rendered on screen by the browser a into a PDF or some image format? Printing to a PDF obviously messes with the formatting. I don't have any professional web-creation/publishing software, unfortunately.

    At this point we've been reduced to taking a couple screenshots (the page is longer than a single screen will display) and stitching them together in Photoshop to create an image that we can link in ArcReader, but it's a cumbersome, time consuming and rather silly workaround...but in absence of a better solution it works. I'd like to find a more elegant (and faster) method if possible

    Any help?

    If you're looking for a Mac application, Paparazzi! might do the trick.

    Another nice tool is the Firefox add-on Abduction. Lets you save any page as an image (even when you're behind a login or similar).
