How to Print a Received Email in JPG

by Faizah Imani

There are simple ways to print a JPG image of an email message that you have received. Most computers have a built-in snapshot tool that will allow you to take a picture of your computer screen. By using the snapshot tool and picture-editing software that is already on your computer, you will have your printout in no time.

Step 1

Launch your email program and open the email message you would like to print.

Step 2

Press the "Alt-Prt SC" (Print Screen) simultaneously on your keyboard to capture the email message.

Step 3

Open your picture-editing software, such as Microsoft Paint, Photoshop, or Corel.

Step 4

Press "Ctrl-V" simultaneously on your keyboard to paste the capture.

Step 5

Edit the pasted capture if you don't want the "Toolbars" and "Email Headers" to appear on your printout. Generally, you can edit by clicking on "Tools" and "Crop" from the menu bar of the picture-editing software. This may vary depending upon the program you are using.

Step 6

Click "File" and "Save As" from the menu bar of your picture-editing software.

Step 7

Give a file name to your capture. Ensure that "File Type" is set to ".JPG." Press the "Save" button.

Click "File" and "Print" from the menu bar of the picture-editing software to print the new image.
