Acrobat - Capture a Web Page

Did you know you can "capture" a web page with clickable links, graphics etc using Adobe Acrobat 7 and above? This is great for saving tutorials to your hard drive for future review and the best part is, any links are live right in the PDF and launch in your browser.

If you have Adobe Acrobat 7 here's how:

1. With your browser, go to the web page you want to capture and copy the URL line to the clipboard.

2. Run Acrobat and go under File > Create PDF > From Web Page.

3. In the following dialog box, paste in the URL from your clipboard. Here you have an option to dig down into the web page and set the "level" of how deep you want to go following links on the page. Most Photoshop tutorials are only 1 long (scroll down) screen so I usually leave this at levels=1. There are also advanced options for page size, book marking etc. which I just leave set to defaults. You can play if you want.

4. Click on the "CREATE" button and Acrobat will start downloading the page.

5. You will next get a progression box. At the bottom of this dialog box is a "twirl" arrow by the words "Files Downloaded". Open that up and you can watch the names of the files being downloaded.

6. When complete, your page will open as a PDF document. Save your page where ever you keep such things.
