Windows 7: Changing an .rtf test document to a .jpg.

Changing an .rtf test document to a .jpg.

I need to change 27 text documents to .jpg so I can view them as a photo.
Is there an easy way to do it?
Yes, I can take a screen shot and paste it into an image program, but that's not very efficient.

If you can open the document in an application that can "print" the document, then you can turn that document into any of these file formats:

Name:  P1.png
Views: 76
Size:  24.6 KB


However, I hesitate to suggest PDFCreator...
...because it is a pain to prevent extra junk/features from installing.
Download PDFCreator 1.7.2 - FileHippo.com

If you will follow these screenshots, then you should be safe on the installation:

Select Run or Save or Save as...

Deal with the User Account Control and OS security windows - if need be.

Remove every check - except the ones shown in the next two screenshots:

After you click on Install (as shown above)...
...you may be offered junk (as shown below):

I have moved the window to show you that this offer of junk is via a separate installer with its own window. Just click on Cancel to decline the junk. The other installer should continue.


Uncheck the option to Show help after setup.

Now you are ready to "print" to jpg.

Open the RTF document in any app that can print.

You do not have to use WordPad like I do in these screenshots.

You only need to do this step one time:

Edit:
If you are going to print lots of documents, then it is worth your time to learn how to use the auto-save (batch-print) feature:

Thanks.
How do you get to that "OPTIONS" page?
I don't want to try the .pdf solution.

In the string of screenshots, you should see where I said, "You only need to do this step one time:". That will take you to options.

Also, these two steps should get you there:

You said you hesitate to recommend PDF Creator, yet you just pointed me there.
Is there no other way>

I gave the reason why I was hesitant:
"...because it is a pain to prevent extra junk/features from installing."

Then I said:
"If you will follow these screenshots, then you should be safe on the installation:"

Even if you mess up during the installation, nothing that gets installed is malware. It is just junk that you do not need.


There are probably plenty of other ways to do what you want, but I don't know about them. I've used PDFCreator for many years now - so I've not had to ferret out any other ways to print to a file format.
