Convert files to jpeg for Intranet site

By MKH@CR ·
I have approximately 900 report files of various formats (.xls, txt,rep) that I want to be able to view on an intranet site. Some are a page or 2, others are much longer. What is the easiest method to covert to jpg format? The .xls format is okaybecause it can be viewed by the Browser on the client.

Possible options:
Open the file, copy, paste into app (such as Paint), save as jpg. Acrobat can also be used.

Are there any other solutions?

Cut and paste this link:

(REMOVE SPACES from the pasted URL)

"This tutorial will cover the steps required to convert files to JPG format. The originals will still be intact, anew copy will be created."

"Some browsers (Netscape) can't display images if they're BMP or EMF/WMF format. To make things easier on potential visitors to our site who may be browsing our images, we'll convert everything to jpg."

NOTE - Thesetutorials are based on version 1.4 of Batch Thumbs. You can download a copy of Batch Thumbs version 1.4 at:

You _can_ convert to JPG, but GIF makes more sense for the files you're talking about. JPG is best for photographs (gradient colors). GIF is best for files with flat or no colors.

Personally, I would use the following: print screen, open Microsoft Photo Editor, paste as new image, crop image, re-size image, save as GIF.

If it's OK to capture the text from the TXT files, I'd consider taking the text and putting it inside [PRE] tags. If it's not OK, I'd stick with GIF.
