I've just started using Adobe Photoshop 6.0 and wanted to know how I can get an Image of a webpage (thumbnail image of a webpage). In Ulead I just click on File>Import>Webpage and then type in the URL. How do I do this on Adobe Photoshop 6.0. Thanks in advance.

I have always just done a PrintScrn, File-New and paste. Does this help?

I don't think I quite understand. Could you explain that? I would like to insert links on my pages with pictures of the companies' website page. I am sorry if I am acting slowly tonight. Thanks again

Get the site you want an image of on your screen, if you have IE push F11 and then push the print-screen button. Then go to PS and go to File, New, click ok and then paste the screenshot into the new image. Good luck!

I don't have a print screen button on my IE 6. I pressed F11 and then got the full screen image of my webpage and then pressed print, but it sent it to my printer. It doesn't work that way for me. Is there anything else I can try?

Take a screen capture image, then edit the resulting image file in photoshop?

With all due respect to mahlon, I think F11 is the "Full Screen" - not "Print Screen" - key.

To copy an image of the entire screen, press PRINT SCREEN on your keyboard. To copy an image of the window that is currently active, press ALT+PRINT SCREEN.

That image is now in your clipboard - open Photoshop, and paste the image into a new document. There may be easier ways to make a thumbnail, but that will capture a screen and get it into PS.

<<added>> Ah, mahlon - went back and read your post again - you threw us all off with that Full Screen thing...your directions were otherwise on the money though...<</added>>
