This article contains a process for converting multiple items on a Microsoft Publisher page into a single CompuServe Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) file.

More information

To convert a Publisher page to a GIF file, follow these steps :

  1. On the File menu, click New.
  2. In the Catalog, click the Blank Publications tab.
  3. Click Web Page, and then click Create.
  4. Click Table Frame Tool on the Objects toolbar. Draw the table frame. The Create Table dialog box will appear after you have finished drawing the table frame. In the Number of Rows and in the Number of Columns, type the number 1.
  5. Using the sizing handles, stretch the table cell and make it as large as necessary. Insert anything you want in the table cell. For example, insert picture frames, text frames, pictures, or drawing objects.
  6. On the File menu, click Save As Web Page. If you do not see this command on the File menu, you are not in Web Publication mode. To enter Web Publication mode, click Create Web Site from Current Publication on the File menu.
  7. Select a destination folder and click OK.
After Publisher converts your presentation to a Web Page, the destination folder will contain a GIF image of your entire page.

This method works because Publisher saves overlapping objects as GIF images.
