1.What is png format?
PNG is short for Portable Network Graphic format.The image file stored in PNG format like .GIF file, contains a bitmap of indexed colors under a lossless compression, but without copyright limitations.PNG format is commonly used to store graphics for Web images.
Images saved in the PNG image format potentially have a much higher color depth than their GIF counterparts —- while GIF limits its palette to 256 colors, PNG can be true color. This allows for a much higher fidelity of image than GIFs are capable of, allowing for images on a par with their JPEG cousins.

"C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Temp\htmltools\htmltools.exe" "www.verypdf.com" verypdf.png
"C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Temp\htmltools\htmltools.exe" is the path of htmltools.exe,which can be dragged into cmd.exe dialog box if you don’t want to input a so long directory.
"www.verypdf.com" is the URL of the webpage which is needed to be converted.
verypdf.png is the name of target file.If you don’t define the name of target file,the source file will be converted to pdf file automatically.
