How can I save a Trove newspaper article as an image?

Sometimes you want to be able to save a Trove newspaper article as an image. Unfortunately, the Trove web interface doesn’t make this easy. The ‘Download JPG’ option actually loads an HTML page, and while you could individually save the images embedded in the HTML page, often articles are sliced up in ways that make the whole thing hard to read and use.

So how can you save an article as an image (or multiple images if it is split across pages)? Here’s a little web app that does just that.

Just paste in the url of a newspaper article and click the button! If you’re interested in how this works, all is explained in this GLAM Workbench notebook.


Just tried out this little app. It works beautifully.
