    Is there a good Safari plugin to capture a full webpage screenshot? I use Nimbus Screenshot for Firefox and works like a charm but there's no decent thing for Safari (and the Export PDF option sucks).

    I've tried Awesome Screenshot but it has quite some glitches with the page I work with, and there's an Evernote plugin but I don't want to make an account.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Full page screenshots is a feature that I really miss in Safari. All third-party tools which I tried produce questionable results.

    Firefox 55 just introduced their new screenshots tool, but for a long time they have a built-in function for full page screenshots. It works very well, but it's hidden in their Developer Tools and many people don't know that it exists. You need to open Developer Tools (Shift+F5) and then click on the Camera toolbar icon. To put the Camera icon on the toolbar, click on the gear icon and turn on "Take a screenshot of the entire page".[​IMG]

    Let's hope that Safari will add the the same screenshot functionality.

    2017 MBP with TB: you can customize the touch bar in Safari to integrate a screenshot button. Once touched this allows you to select a portion, entire screen or window. You can also determine where the screenshot should be saved.

    If you have a need for a more feature rich screenshot tool, consider Snagit. Snagit has a scrolling tool for most browsers and does a good job capturing an entire page.

    I've always just used the keyboard shortcut personally.
    CMD+SHIFT+4
    That will turn your cursor into crosshairs. Hit spacebar to take a screen shot of the window the cursor is over, or use the cursor to highlight a specific area to screenshot.

    You missed the part about capturing an ENTIRE webpage... not just what's viewable on screen.

    Did you find a good solution for this? I have been looking for one to take Full Screen screenshots of some of Apple's webpages, but some get messed up because of different animations on them.

    Awesome Screenshot (free) for Safari. A nice little extension that allows you to capture full-page shots, do light editing, and save the images to your computer (or the cloud).

    I'm sure somebody will tell you about security issues with the extension. That was the previous owner of the extension, and nearly a decade ago. It's quite safe, very stable, easy to use and does it's job perfectly every time.

    Attached is this page captured with Awesome Screenshot.

    Awesome is - well - awesome, just note that there is (was?) a bug when used on some pages with a "sticky menu", where the menu is repeated several times down the page. Very annoying on those affected pages, otherwise - as mentioned - awesome. :)

    I do recall that issue... so I have a bookmarklet that "unsticks" the menubar on those sites, so I don't have the problem. Not sure if they actually fixed it or not.

    I don't know where I got it, but here is the bookmarklet script. Just drag this link into your bookmarks bar:
