HTML files aren’t all that common to come across on the Internet during everyday use. That being said, you may eventually stumble across some, most likely when trying to download image files from websites. If you have come across a HTML file or just want to save an entire website to a JPG file, this guide will show you how.
Although HTML files aren’t all that common, they can be a pain in the ass to open and use. In situations like this, it’s often far easier to convert them into other formats like JPG. It's worth noting before getting too far into this guide that some HTML format files don’t convert very well, for example, if your HTML file contains images, CSS styles, and some other intricate details, it won’t convert as cleanly as you’d expected. Generally, basic text formats work best. Don’t like this dishearten you though, it is still possible to convert websites directly to JPG using their URL.
How to Convert HTML Files and Websites to JPG Format Using ‘Convertio’.
If you have read some of our articles over the last few months, you will probably be familiar with the first online tool Convertio. Convertio is one of the best online tools available for converting just about any format you can think of into just about any other format you can think of. Obviously, you're not going to be able to convert a JPG into an MP3, but I'm sure you get the gist of it.
Using Convertio is super simple, all you have to do is upload the HTML file you wish to use from your desired source, then wait for it to be converted into the file type you need. You can also take advantage of the URL upload option, which you can use to capture entire web pages as image files. Using this tool is far easier and way more accurate than using screenshot and screen capture tools.
How to Convert HTML Files to JPG and Other Formats Using ‘Free File Conversion’.
Another free online tool you can use to convert HTML files to other formats including JPG is called Free File Conversion. This free online tool doesn’t allow you to convert from URL but does have a very impressive list of file formats you can convert HTML into, 17 to be precise. Although I didn’t try all 17 of the file types, the image formats worked quite well. To use the service, simply upload your file, then follow the steps shown on the website. The entire process shouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes from start to finish.
Although I personally prefer to use Convertio for most HTML and website conversions, Free File Conversion does have a far larger range of conversion options available. The best strategy would be to switch between both services to utilize the different formats to your advantage.
