    is there a way is there an APP by which I can take a partial (Selected area) or a full screen screenshot of the webpage ?

    For partial screenshot I know I can take a screenshot of the entire area and then crop it but I am looking to minimise steps a way to directly do it on the webpage using an APP or something !

    Try zoom the webpage,then take screenshot. Of course it depend on why you want a partial screenshot.

    Full webpage:
    Print to PDF. Use the share sheet and select print. Then when the print dialog comes up, use two finger pinch to zoom in to full page view. Then a new share sheet icon will appear and you can save as PDF to Dropbox or iCloud or Documents, etc

    Partial Screen shot:
    This will be natively supported in iOS 11 but for now you can take a regular screen shot and then go in to Photos and edit the screen shot by cropping it. Or you can use whatever phot editing app you like best to crop, smudge out identifying info, etc. I know that's not what you wanted to hear, but like I said that one-step native functionality is coming in iOS 11.

    Oh cool ! iOS 11 will support specific area screenshot just like Mac OS ? How cool is that !! Super excited about iOS 11 !

    I am not sure I have understood the full page screenshot trick that you have mentioned. Because to even to do a print to PDF I need to first take a screenshot the normal way by pressing the home and power button together and that way, only what is displayed on the screen is selected as screenshot ! Not the entire page is selected as screenshot. So how do I do it ?

    No, do not take a screen shot, just click on the share sheet icon in Safari. Then select print. Then zoom with two fingers to full screen. Then tap the new share sheet icon and select add to icloud, save to dropbox, etc.

    When I click on the share sheet icon and then select print in the print option it gives me this (Please see the attached screenshot) it does not let me zoom out with two fingers. Can you please post a screenshot of what you mean. If you can post a video that would be great.

    It does work. Place two fingers on the first page thumbnail preview (it’s important the fingers are on that) and spread them as though you’re trying to zoom in on the thumbnail.

    You can use the extension when in safari (the app shows you how when you open it the first time after installing) or open the webpage in the app and tap 'full page' in the upper right.

    In iOS 11 when you take a screen shot it appears in the bottom left. You tap that and you can crop before it’s saved. Quite nifty

    I downloaded the APP on my iPad it did not give me the option to install the extension. And When I go in the APP paste the URL there and say full page in the upper right it does give me full page but it does not give any provision to take a screenshot of that full webpage ! Can you post a screenshot of where and how to do it in that APP ?

    That is the exact screen you should be in. Then zoom IN, not out, with two fingers.

    After you hit 'full page', it's pretty much done, just tap the check mark and save.

    To install enable the safari extension, tap the hamburger menu (3 horizontal bars) in the app and then --> 'help'. It shows you the four simple steps

    The Safari extension looks a nifty feature but whenever I try using the Safari Extension it is crashing and again coming out of the extension on the webpage ! I could go in to the APP paste the URL there but that is coming out of the webpage that I am viewing which I dont wanna do !

    Very suspicious!! So you pinch out with two fingers on the preview, and nothing at all happens?? Should work on all devices running the latest OS...

    Okay, I just learned a new trick. That is going to be very handy for doing Print to PDF on the iPad.

    Apple really should just have a button for it in the corner of the preview area though.

    So two things:
    1) It only works on the thumbnail in the print preview.
    2) It may be iOS 10-only.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it is iOS 10 where this was introduced. Sorry @vish26 !
