    mini-Web pages for online portfolio

    How do I create miniature versions of Web pages?

    I want to be able to display multiple minis on an online portfolio page. When the user clicks the mini, they are taken to the actual web site where the page exists.

    Just take a screenshot of the page, trim off the browser stuff, and reduce the size

    If you hit the "Print Screen" button it will store a copy of whatever is on the screen, then just open upo your favourite image editor and paste it...

    You can also use "control + print screeen" to get just the active window. Or, if you'd like even more help than that, try a program called Capture from Analogx.com . It's free and easy to use.

    Then, get a program called Irfanview . It's a graphics viewing program that has some basic editing tools built in. You can use it to create a thumbnail gallery automatically resizing the screen caps you made with capture.

    Obviously you would get better results doing it yourself with Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro but these tools might suit your needs.

    capture/edit all-in-one

    Thanks for the input. I need to make alot of screenshots, so I'm also considering buying a capture tool that edits out the browser stuff during the capture and allows you to resize it too. The ones I have found are:

    CapWizPro pixelmetrics.com
    SnagIt techsmith.com
    Capture By George screencaptureutility.com

    Anybody have any experiences here? They're all the same price ($29.95).

    Paint Shop Pro has a very useful screen capture facility, doing things like taking a screenshot of only the client window, without the browser bits, every time you right click, or press a key, or you can just set it to take a snapshot every n seconds
    it rocks
