    I want to screen shoot the entire safari page of a website. Anyone mind to teach me how to do it?

    I tried using Grab, even by clicking the "window" option, it will only capture the part that showed up on the screen, it can't capture the part that I need to scroll down.

    Thanks.

    You can't take a screen shot of something that isn't visible on the screen. You could try printing to a PDF as an alternative. Or you could zoom out to make more of the page fit before taking a screen shot. Or you could take multiple screen shots, scrolling down for each one, then join them in one image.

    There are free web services for that, but I would have to search for them myself...shouldn't be hard to find though.

    Wrong. Even some Mac OS 9.x.x and Mac OS 8.x.x applications allowed this.

    My post is right, as it refers to taking Mac OS X screen shots (Command-Shift-3 and Command-Shift-4). It doesn't reference 3rd party apps. As I mentioned, there are alternatives, such as printing to PDF.

    Give Skitch a try.....it is free.

    http://skitch.com/

    There is an option called "Snap Safari" it will capture the whole page that you are currently viewing plus all the rest of it that you need to scroll down to view.

    It works really well and has a ton of options plus the ability to annotate your captures (great for creating manuals and stuff).

    You can also just drag the URL onto Skitch and it will do this. Great app.

    I wasted a lot of time earlier today trying to find an app that would take a screen capture of an entire webpage and Skitch totally works great on 10.9.2. Thank you!

    Hi! How can I make a capture of all files in a Finder folder (which is more than one screen) with this program?

    Hi, I have installed Awesome Screenshot and "Capture Visible Part of Page" and "Capture Selected Area" all work great. It is opens a second tab, were you can annotate, save or upload. But "Capture Entire Page" doesn't do anything on my iMac... I tried it on this particular page, but nothing. Did I do something wrong? I have an 2009 iMac with latest OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 and using the latest Safari available... Help would be appreciated very much as this sounds promising!

    ----------

    Ehm sorry! I don't know why, but after posting my reply it all worked great!

    That's all I need! Wouldn't mind paying a small fee for something similar for Finder though...

    Beware that Awesome Screenshot on Safari is considered by some (e.g. thesafemac.com: http://www.thesafemac.com/screenshot-extension-injects-ads/ ) to be adware. I see his point because it is "sneaky" about it.

    You've revived a 3 ½ year old thread to post an answer that doesn't work for the problem mentioned in the OP. It's a good idea to take the time to read a thread (including the dates) before posting, so your posts are more likely to be helpful.
