Open and save a PHP file to JPEG file format using an image file printer driver that operates as a virtual printer. PHP code files consist of formatted text that can be difficult to display correctly in documents such as Web pages. Converting a PHP file to a JPEG image file resolves the issue by capturing a picture of the formatted PHP code, so no formatting is required.
