You’re on Facebook. You see a clickbait title you can’t resist. You click on it only to discover you have to click through 20 different pages just to see the whole article. Annoying, right?
Luckily, there are a few easy to use tools out there that can quickly convert an annoying slideshow article into one convenient and easy-to-read page.
With Deslide you can copy and paste the link into their website and choose from a variety of ways to have the page displayed. You can control the size of the image, and how much of the text you want displayed.
Deslide actually makes things much easier for you by also providing a bookmarklet. Just drag the bookmarklet into your bookmarks bar and every time you come across an annoying multipage article, just click the bookmarklet and you can view the article on one page.
This is one of the easiest to use and most consistent tools that we found to get rid of those annoying slideshows.
PageZipper, which we’ve highlighted in the past, is another great option that offers a bookmarklet and a Chrome and Firefox extension. At the time of writing, however, it wasn’t working with all the sites that we tested.
You can see Page Zipper in action in the video below:
