HP Smart Web Printing - organize web clippings before you print

Posted by ClifNotes, May 2008, permalink Printing Tools


CC wrote in with another tip. In his classic no nonsense style, he didn't give me anything but a link. I know better than to pass over his recommendations.


Who would have guessed? HP has freeware? They've made this application called HP Smart Web Printing and it's free. It's also a brilliant application that can save you tons of time and considerable amount of printer paper and ink.


I didn't care for the installer that they used, but it certainly did the job. When it was done, I had a new sidebar in Internet Explorer and Firefox. That's a great trick considering that I use a portable version of Firefox. Firefox didn't even give me a warning that someone was trying to install an addon. That's the only issue that had me worried.


HP Smart Web Printing allows you to copy web clippings in the sidebar. Once you have a few clippings, you can preview them in a page, edit or adjust them, and then print or publish them to PDF. The program seems to work flawlessly with no hiccups or lag.


Quote from the website

Save paper by combining portions of numerous web pages onto one page before printing. No more wasteful prints containing clipped pages or a few lines of useless text. Now you'll get an accurate print of the web page you see onscreen.


Once you transfer content to your custom document, you can edit the text and graphics and even resize and delete them. Then print exactly what you see on screen. HP Smart Web Printing will also save your custom document as an Adobe PDF file.
