Website review: Print the way you want!Archive
While surfing the internet, you may have come across many useful websites containing the information you have been looking for. But unfortunately, most of these sites contain ads and, if not ads, there is quite a lot of unnecessary detail. Copy and pasting the paragraphs of your choice seems a big hassle so this is where www.printwhatyoulike.com comes in handy — the site which saves the file and prints what you like, whether an image or some excerpt.
Printwhatyoulike works like a genie by giving you the material from a website just the way you want. All you have to do is to enter the URL of the page you’ve found interesting in the box given at the centre of the page and hit ‘Start’.
When you have entered the URL in the box provided, it will take you to the ‘print preview’ with a left panel containing different tools to edit the page, such as ‘format’, ‘text size’, ‘font’, ‘background’, ‘images’ and ‘margins’, with which you can work on your selected excerpt or image.
So once you hover the curser over the text, it will be highlighted; if you select it, the site gives you options to isolate, remove, widen, resize and save clip. So simply click on what you want to remove or keep.
Apart from that, there is an option of merging many pages in one place, which gives you the opportunity of printing the contents of two or more pages in one print, for example, while you are formatting some site, you can click ‘Add Page’ and enter the other url. It will make the latter’s content appear below the former, making it appear as a single page. Once you are done with the editing, you can also save it in HTML and PDF versions or, just like the site says, print what you like.
You can visit the site at: www.printwhatyoulike.com
