Save web pages as PDF

Wkhtmltopdf is a very flexible open source HTML to PDF converter. It's a command line tool, but don't let that put you off - it's still very easy to use.

Saving a remote web page to PDF, for instance, is as simple as entering:

wkhtmltopdf http://www.google.com google.pdf

The results looked good and had working links, most of the time (they can link to local files or remote URLs, and occasionally the program got it wrong).

You can probably already guess how to convert a local file:

wkhtmltopdf c:\folder\MyFile.html MyFile.pdf

Point the program at multiple HTML documents and it'll combine them into a book with a cover and a table of contents:

wkhtmltopdf cover cover.html toc chapter1.html chapter2.html chapter3.html book.pdf

If you need more flexibility then there are plenty of more advanced switches available. You're able to set the PDF's page size, orientation, dpi, margins, headers, footers, and much, much more.

And although PDF will be the output format of choice for most people, wkhtmltopdf can also save Postscript files. Just specify .ps as the extension of your export file:

wkhtmltopdf http://www.microsoft.com microsoft.ps

Verdict:

Wkhtmltopdf is a powerful tool which generally does a good job of rendering HTML files into PDF. It's relatively easy to use (by command line standards), but also has plenty of advanced options if you need them.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
