If a website is a few pages long, how do I do a screen capture that display the full length of the site?

Please advise. Thanks!

    Hi Stephen,

    There are a couple of ways you can do this. Do you just want an image? Or are you needing the text with images for something like a PDF?

    I know Snagit will capture the entire screen. It may even take a snapshot of a highlighted area, but I'm not sure about this last bit.

    If you want images and text to use for a project, I know Adobe professional 8 will capture an entire website and turn it into a PDF.

    If you want to do this last bit and don't have that program, I can do it for you if you send me the URL you want capture.

    Hope this helps ...

    If you are using Firefox (everyone should), check out https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...apture&cat=all

    Mary: Agreed. But once you discover the wide range of available add-ons for Firefox, you don't want to go to other browsers. That's the reason why I prefer Firefox. By the way, I use Chrome too. In fact, I have even started a wiki on it.

    That said, for capturing scrolling screenshots, I use SnagIt.

    For me, Webpage Screenshot simply do the trick. Go to its site, and use it for free.

    Be VERY CAREFUL about some of these screen cap plugins for browsers. They can have nasty (and silent!) payload bombs that install malware. I've uinstalled all of mine from Chroma, because of it.The only one that's decent is Screengrab! for Firefox. Even then, it's not perfect.

    I prefer Greenshot. Shoot what I see, move, shoot again, stitch in Photoshop.

    I like to use skitch for screenshots, dragging a URL from the browser will take a full screenshot on a mac, not sure if PC is the same, I will check it out later. The advantage with skitch is that it is really easy to annotate the image after you have captured it. I have used the Firefox plugins already mentioned, but for a free app you can't go wrong with skitch.

      I've been looking for a Mac app like Greenshot on Windows.

      This might be it.

      Confirmed PC version does not do full web page capture, real shame, let's it down really, otherwise a great app
