Autocad to jpeg

Is there any way of converting an Autocad drawing to a jpg image. I'm looking to use some drawings in a sort of montage on a web page.
TIA
Chris

Download PDFCreator (virtual printer). With it you can "plot" to pdf, jpg...

Use the Prnt Scrn key on your keyboard. Open Paint and paste the results. Use the crop tool in Paint and save the result as a JPG.

No, don't! This works if you have two lines. If you have any kind of half serious drawing image done this way will be useless.

If you are using 2009 JPGOUT is an Autocad command.

If Chris needs a "jpg" for "whatever" use, the "right" AutoCAD command is jpgout.
Q:Why PDFCreator? AutoCAD already has its own internal PDF printer. Q:Why PDF? Again, useless vectorial image... the way is DWF not PDF

Jpgout creates something that is closest to Printscreen. It is just useless snapshot.

Because PDFCreator can "plot" to JPG, but high res jpg, that can be zoomed in to see all details of the drawing.

If you ve got problems of res with your jpg, you find a "PubblishToWeb JPG.pc3" profile under your printer settings and you have full jpg resolution control.

If you want to export a format that can be zoomed you don't want a raster based format like JPEG, you want a vector based format like wmf aka windows metafile.
