Suppose you want to share a document with the rest of the world but do not want them to be able to edit or modify it, then the best option for you is to share that document in form of an image. Images are viewable and printable, but they cannot be modified as easily as a Microsoft Word or PDF document. You can make use of the free Image Printer software to convert just about any type of document into an image. It can save the documents in JPG, BMP, PNG or TIFF formats.
You can download the free Image Printer from the Code Industry website. The download is a very small file of less than 1 megabytes. It comes as a setup installer which installs a printer driver on your Windows PC. This printer driver acts as virtual printer on your system. After the installation is over, you should open the options for Image Printer either by double-clicking on Options Image Printer shortcut on your desktop or in the Start Menu. In the Image Printer options window, you can choose the folder where the resulting files would be saved, the resulting file format (from BMP, PNG, JPG, TIFF or PDF) and the compression level.
After this, you can just open any document and print it (usually by pressing the Ctrl + P hotkey). Do not try to use the quick print command found in some applications like Microsoft Word. The quick print command would actually print the document using your default printer without any confirmation. Instead, when the printer selection dialog pops up, select the Image Printer from the list.
When you click on the Print button, the document shall be converted to a format you selected in the options and saved in the pre-specified output folder. You will not get any notifications or confirmations. It will just do the job silently. You can find the generated files in the output folder and open them in an image editor like Irfan View or upload them to a website for sharing with everyone.
The free Image Printer is a useful utility for Windows users. It allows you to save any type of document (that you can print) into various types of image formats in addition to the PDF file format. It works in Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 and supports both the 32-bit and 64-bit editions. It can convert your documents in multiple image types in just one click.
