I’d like to print out an screenshot of a website, but it doesn’t fit in one screen. Is there any way I can do this without having to take a number of images and glue them all together?
Camille from Cupidopolis asked me this question when she wanted to print a screenshot from her website. Unfortunately this scrolled down for quite a few screenfulls, so taking individual screenshots and gluing them all together just wasn’t an option.
To solve the problem, I found a great Addon for Firefox called Page Saver that lets you capture complete images of web pages and do whatever you want with them. The plugin comes in two variants, a free one with basic functionality and a “Pro” one that has some extra features. The free one was adequate for what we needed so I proceeded to download it. Once activated, the plugin adds some options to your menus and a handy camera icon to your toolbar:
The toolbar icon is the simplest way to use the plugin. To test it out, I visited a website that sold dog supplies and clicked the button:
Mission accomplished, the entire page was now in a single image on my hard disk. Hope you find this useful too.
