How to save a google/mapquest map as a jpeg

Mar 25, 2008 10:05 PM

hi there,

can anyone tell me how to save a map as a jpeg? I'm right-clicking a map on google/mapquest but they both seem to be protected - I've seen plenty of maps in website so I'm wondering how you guys do it.

Thanks!

    Just copy the embed code from the Google map and paste it in your site.

    or take a screen print and then edit it in your drawing/photo software -
    save a jpeg and upload to your site

    I know this thread is super old, but I've found MapQuest's "Static Map Web Service" to be helpful for tasks like this.  You basically make a request and include a few parameters and the service will return a static JPEG.  No screenshots, photo editors, etc., needed!  Hopefully this will be helpful to someone.

    In times like this I use a little program called printkey2000. You start it and it runs in your tray. Double click it, select Ctrl R, and it lets you draw a rectangle around the part of the screen you want to "grab." You then can save to .jpg format by giving it a name and selecting .jpg or simpler yet, put the .jpg on the end of the filename. It free for personal use. I have used it for years.

    Note: you might have to adjust the time setting in the program to a longer time... Options/Define delay for rectangle. The initial 1 second is usually not enough for an old slow poke like myself.
