Default Webpage screenshot in Ubuntu: large webpages

I just discovered this terrific solar system scale:
http://www.phrenopolis.com/perspective/solarsystem/

I would like to export it as a .png image, but I cannot figure out how
to do that. I have been playing with wget and imagemagick but I just
can't do it. Googling finds Firefox addons that do not support such a
large page and Windows software. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello Dotan

2009/11/27 Dotan Cohen <dotancohen@gmail.com>

I just discovered this terrific solar system scale:

http://www.phrenopolis.com/perspective/solarsystem/



I would like to export it as a .png image, but I cannot figure out how

to do that. I have been playing with wget and imagemagick but I just

can't do it. Googling finds Firefox addons that do not support such a

large page and Windows software. Any ideas? Thanks!


A few minutes ago, I experimented quickly with that site from Kubuntu 9.10. There are at least three ways to export the image to .png.

First method. Simply download the original .jpg file via Firefox, open and save it with Gimp. You can select from there .png and several other formats. !! But even after selecting the format, you need to manually give in the name, including "..png". Otherwise it will not work.

Second method. Go back to the website. Use KSnapshot or a similar screenshot package in Gnome. Save the image in .png.
Third method. Go back again to the site and download the original .jpg file. Open the file with Gwenview or a similar Gnome package. Save it under another name as .png.


I hope these three ideas will help you.

Respectfully yours,

Bas.

Have you tried Opera. I remember we used Opera to take snapshots of web pages -for a bookmaking application actually. We used it on ubuntu system. I don't remember details but It worths to check.---

Put your cursor on the image, right click, select "Save Image As".
Its a jpg but you can put sun.png as the name and it works just fine.

He doesn't want to download just the image of the sun, he wants the
whole webpage (it's half a mile wide) saved to a single image.

I think you missed a large part of that page. Did you read the text to
the right of the image of the sun?

Save as html, html2ps it, use imagemagick to convert it from ps to png.

Should work.

Am I missing something here?* Why not use any browser and then use Applications ->Accessories -> Take a Screen shot?*

Using the "select area to grab"* you can just grab the picture without the print (which I didn't do well).

If neither Cemal's or Avi's tips wrt Opera or html2ps are what you want:
the page basically consists of a table with a single row. The
table cells contain either a picture of a planet or a completely black
image. You could save the images of the planets and then use Gimp or
whatever to glue them together, thereby using the values of the WIDTH
attributes in the black parts to get an idea of the space between the
individual planet images.

That won't work because that would only give him the sun, he wants the
rest of the solar system too.
Just look at the page source:

<TD valign=center><A NAME="sun"><IMG SRC="sun.jpg" ALT="" HEIGHT=562
WIDTH=562></A></TD>

<TD valign=top><table width=300 cellpadding=20 valign=top><tr><td>
This page shows a scale model of the solar system, shrunken down to the
point where the Sun, normally more than eight hundred thousand miles
across, is the size you see it here. The planets are shown in
corresponding scale. Unlike most models, which are compressed for viewing
convenience, the planets here are also shown at their true-to-scale
average <I>distances</I> from the Sun. That makes this page rather large
- on an ordinary 72 dpi monitor it's just over half a mile wide, making it
possibly one of the largest pages on the web. This means you'll have to
do a bit of scrolling if you want to find the planets, but don't despair.
They are reasonably bright and labeled, so you can probably catch them
flashing by in the blackness even if you are scrolling fairly fast.<p>
(Note: users of older versions of Internet Explorer may not be able to
scroll manually all the way to the right edge. If you want to actually
see Pluto, you may need to click <A HREF="#pluto">HERE</A>.)<p>

Speaking of Pluto, I know it's no longer technically a planet, but it's
still included in this model for reasons of tradition.
