I have a grid covering some area and roads shapefile on the map. Now I want to make a screenshot of each grid square and save it as a picture. How I can do that using qgis? I have searched for plugins but with no success. Also I have tried to use print composer but I can't do the right thing for each square.

  • This can be done with the print Composer. What goes wrong when you try?

  • @BERA I want to do that automatically for whole grid. There is a lot of squares. If I use print composer I should go square by square manually.

  • No you can automate it using print Composer. See "Atlas generation": docs.qgis.org/2.0/en/docs/user_manual/print_composer/…
