Quickies: How to Capture a Full Web Page Image


By Laila | 15th Mar 2016 | Posted in Quickies

We’ve created a series of bite-sized blog posts just long enough to give you the downlow on all kinds of digital wizardry, because we love sharing our knowledge and know-how. Get tips for improving your social media efforts, discover powerful PR tricks, and learn all kinds of hacks to make your work life easier. Here is our super quick tip of the week.

What?

A simple and quick way to turn a full web page into an image, whatever browser you’re using.

Why?

Taking a screenshot of a web page often means not having the entire page in the image, especially if you’re working on a smaller laptop screen.

There are times when I need a screenshot of an entire blog post. Taking multiple screenshots as I scroll down the page, and stitching them together in an image editing program, is one solution – but it’s time consuming. There’s a much quicker way!

How?

The instructions below are for Chrome users. But don’t worry! Firefox users can check out the FireShot add-on, or you can even try out web-capture.net which will process an image from a web page for you without having to install any extras.

  1. Download Full Page Screen Capture from the Chrome Web Store here
  2. Once the Chrome extension is installed, click on the extension in your browser bar
  3. Wait for the image version of the web page to be generated
  4. When it opens up in a new tab, right-click and save-as or just drag to your desktop

For best results, ensure the zoom of the page you are capturing is set to “Actual Size” from the “View” menu.
