Capturing full page images in Firefox and IE

Post by Sat31March1928 » Thu Jul 09, 2009 8:16 am

Not sure what the best forum for posting this.

I've discovered this great add on for firefox (and IE but I haven't tried it from there). FIRESHOT

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5648

"FireShot is a Firefox extension that creates screenshots of web pages (entirely or just visible part)."

It is great for capturing a complete screen e.g. a page from the SDA which is made up of 5 or 6 individual jpgs and saving it as a single image.

You can eitherr copy it to the clipboard or save it as a file. You need to crop the resulting image to get just what you need.

So you get this

Image

rather than smaller images.

I just drag and drop to my desktop and the files are automatically saved as a single jpg. Another alternative (for Mac users anyway) is to use Grab (inside Utilities) which can copy a window, a selection or the full screen.

In full screen mode, Grab only grabs the visible part of the screen and includes browser toolbars, etc.

This would be a useful addition for Macs, if it were available.

Command-Shift-3 does a full page grab.
Command-Shift-4 turns the cursor into crosshairs.

Images are saved to the desktop...

True, which is why I usually just drag and drop and edit (if need be) with Graphic Converter. Grab is best used for actual screen grabs, being able to take full screen grabs for under 200k as opposed to the huge files created in OS 9.
