How to Create a Picture Out of Any File or Website
(Btw, I've created all the thumbnails in this blog post this way. Each are clickable and will open up into a new window or tab. My first example to the left is of my Pinterest page.)
The way I do it is by simply using the "Print Screen" key on my computer keyboard.
Then what I do is I open Microsoft Paint. (see thumbnail 2 on the right)
(Start Button > All Programs > Accessories > Paint) In Paint, I choose Edit in the menu bar at the top, then Paste. What was "print screened" to the clipboard now appears on the screen again in Paint.
Now, I choose File in the menu bar at the top, then Save As. (see thumbnail 3 on the left) A pop up opens where I can name the file and choose what type of picture file I want it to be. PNG is the best for resolution/clarity. (see thumbnail 4 on the left)
Once you've created your picture, you can use it in a number of ways. You can upload it to your iPad to use in a slideshow presentation. You can post it on Facebook or tweet it on Twitter. (People respond to / interact with pictures the most.) You could add it to one of your boards on Pinterest. (To view a collection of our company sites in this format, click here. The cool thing about Pinterest is you can add a link back to whatever site you want from all your picture/print screen uploads.)
As you can see, there are a number of ways you can use the picture you created. Have fun with it. :)
