Firefox extension to convert current web page to pdf file and image

PdfIt is an extension to Firefox that allows converting and saving a web page that you are viewing to PDF format or image file. This is very useful when you want to save a webpage for future use instead of saving it directly. While converting the page to image, user can apply some image filters such as rotate, reflection, emboss, sepia, etc.

The Pdf It extension runs on any platform; Windows, Mac OS X and Linux and the menu item will be installed at Browser-Tools menu as well as context menu.

For some image filters like emboss, the processing takes a while when apply to whole page, so resize browser window to proper size and select 'Visible Area' function only to save time.

While testing, it is found that the quality of pdf file not that much better, however as it is free and very easy to use, it is quite impressive.
You can install PdfIt from here.
