PrintScreen application - ziggywas1 - 10-23-2011

Some sites let you preview their content ( pdf files, etc.) but don't let you to download it. :(
If you don't want to give to them your credit card number, here is one primitive solution: it works like print screen button.

1) Select the folder where you want the files to be saved (preferably create a new folder).
2) Scroll to the page you want to capture. Mark the exact screen area that you want to capture (click the upper left corner with left mouse click and let the button at the down right corner).
3) Hit the capture button to save the contents of the marked area into a file. Go to the next page and hit the capture button again. If the page margins change re-mark the capture area and then hit the capture button.
4) (optional) When done capturing edit the bitmap files created
5) Hit the create pdf button. For 100 pages it takes several minutes - be patient.
6) Open the folder you created at step 1. Copy-rename the pdf file. Delete the folder and contents.

NOTE: The quallity of pdf created is very poor. It gets better the bigger screen size you use. Used it with double monitor pc and scanned these samples in 5minutes each.

NOTE: Don't be hard on it. It was created just for fun and practice. No hard error checking, exception handling, help etc. Looking forward for comments though.
NOTE: It requires .NET Framework 4 installed. Keep dlls and exe in the same folder.
