    Hey guys and gals. I have Paint.NET v. 3.36 No MS though. How can I turn a CL ad into a JPEG with words and image?

    The CL ad I'm using is an image now because I placed it on CL earlier using very basic html.

    Thanks in advance!

    Maybe there's a free online program that I can do this with? :confused:

    easiest way, post the ad and take a printscreen or two then paste and chop in paint or PS.

    Definitely. Imo this program is pretty much a must have anyway!

    Just use the Prt Scr button on your screen, open Irfanview, CTRL+V and crop the ad and you're done. :)

    I never bother to open Photoshop for something quick like this - by the time PS loads up, I'd already be done with Irfanview.

    1) Go into MS word..
    2) Change page layout to landscape
    3) Insert Text Box
    4) Type your ad
    5) Click outside the text box, then right click the frame of the text box & 'Save as jpg'

    This method is also pretty good because you can shape the txt box to the same format size as the ad space on which ever website you are posting. - This will make it look less like a pic file for people with really quick internet.
