Screen Capture Entire Web Pages On Your Mac

If you need to capture an entire web page as an image, it can be difficult to do so because macOS screenshots don't allow you to capture all of the contents of a scolling window. However, you can use many different techniques to get the entire contents of a web page. Safari has a hidden feature to do this, but sometimes it won't work on certain pages. You can buy third-party pro capture software that will let you take perfect screen grabs of entire pages. You can also use a feature of the free Firefox browser, though it sometimes doesn't work perfectly.

    I have found the best way to clip from the Web is to use Evernote Web Clipper with options to save full page, article, simplified article. Of course you need an Evernote account as this only saves to Evernote.

    Joe: Do you mean at 2:23? Are you Control+Clicking on the "body" like I am? What version of Safari do you have? You can always post a screenshot to and link to it here.

    The iOS option "Create PDF" seems to save the web page in a very similar manner: a long image.

    Darrell: As I mention in the video, saving as a PDF won't get you the same look as exporting as an image. But it is a great way to save an article to read later. It just doesn't work for those that want a pixel-perfect image of what they see in the browser. At least for most websites.

    Great video, Gary. I used to use SnagIt every day when developing internal company web pages. It was a very useful piece of software, but even it would occasionally have trouble capturing an entire web page. Nowadays I need this functionality only occasionally, so it's good to know about the Safari and Firefox options versus shelling out $50 for SnagIt. Thank You!

    I've been using Paparazzi for years. Easy to use, free, always updated, and just for Mac. :)
