Making colorful PDFs from web pages

This article show how to print the web pages into pdf.




Press Ctrl + P after completely loading the page.

Chrome


In Google Chrome select Save as PDF, set Margins: None and tick Background colors and images.


Now press Save button and give the filename. This is gives best pdf on my experience.

Firefox


For Firefox, in windows, you may not get print to pdf options by default. So you have to install either PDFCreator or PrismoPDF.

After pressing Ctrl + P

You get  a window, shown below, from which you have to select Printer Name ( PDFCreator here)
You can make sure it is color by clicking in Properties in the above windows

Now press ok. Then get another windows in which you have to select Save.

 If you like you can also try changing options in the above figure.
