Hi, I have the website on my laptop but when I go to Alt>print screen it won't copy the page, I want to show them what it looks like to see if they want to change anything regarding look and functionality. Do you think this may be somethind to do with the laptop?
I viewed it in browser, and saved it as a web page but there were loads of files per page and it is just too big. The pdf makes a mess of it and then I run out of options, as far as I can see. Is there any other way to let them see it. They don't have dreamweaver either so can't send that.

I'd have said print screen and paste into paint (if you are on a PC). That will give a .bmp file which you could convert in Photoshop and send. If print screen isn't working it may be your lappy.

Thanks Corrosive, I was thinking it was the laptop, bloomin hurdles all over the place, I don't think I passed the test on tolerance!

You need the patience of a saint to web design sometimes. I have thrown many a coffee cup at many a wall in the pursuit of the 'right' answer ;)

i use a small program from gadswin which captures and save to folder and format of your choice. its a one click process that uses print screen to activate. on windows at least

Nice one Dave. That's a really handy plugin.

I was googling around and I found this weblink, it literally downloaded in a second and that was it, it is like a mini camera, sooooo easy to use.
