    I was wondering if there was some other application that could allow you to capture a whole window, instead of only what appears on the screen. For example it is impossible to capture a 5 page web site unless you take 5 different shots using Grab.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    I like to save websites as PDFs.

    Print, save as PDF, choose destination.

    Again, Paparazzi will serve you MUCH better than printing. :)

    You don't actually print it. It saves it to the computer as a PDF. You hit control P (or choose Print... from the File menu) and go from there.

    I know, man. But check this out, behold the difference. Let's say I need to make a PDF of Nasa's website...

    PDF made by file -> print -> safe as PDF:
    http://idisk.mac.com/tedroddy/Public/nasaprint.pdf

    PDF made with Paparazzi:
    http://idisk.mac.com/tedroddy/Public/nasapap.pdf

    And Paparazzi is free! All you do is type paste the URL in and boom! :D

    small problem...

    Paparazzi is pretty cool. thanks! Unfortunately the website I want to copy requires you to log in, and Paparazzi doesn't allow me to log in before taking the snapshot. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    Navigate to the website in Safari and go to File -> Save as ...

    Save it as a web archive, let's just say you saved it on your Desktop as ebay.webarchive

    Now open Paparazzi! and this would be the URL:

    file:///Users/Ted/Desktop/ebay.webarchive

    But obviously my name is Ted but you would put your name. :D
