htmltools.exe stands for the called program which is the executable file in software HTML Converter Command Line.
–rotate value is the parameter about rotating page.
www.verypdf.com can be seen as source file.
output.png is the target file.
Please see Figure4 to see the example command line inputted in the dialog.
"C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Temp\htmltools\htmltools.exe" -rotate 90 www.verypdf.com verypdf.png
"C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Temp\htmltools\htmltools.exe" is the path of htmltools.exe.If you don’t want to input a so long path,please drag the file into cmd.exe dialog box directly.
-rotate 90 stands for the rotation angle of source file and the source file will rotate 90° clockwise in the conversion process.
www.verypdf.com is the URL of the webpage.
verypdf.png is the name of target file,which you should set yourself.
Step3.Find the target file
This is the easiest step and you can find the target file in current directory because you didn’t specify the path for the target file in command line.Of course you can set the directory you like for the target file such as C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Desktop\New Folder\verypdf.png.
