Hi all,

Apologies in advance if this has been answered before, but I searched the forum and didn't really see a solution that worked. It's a pretty basic question.

I want to copy an entire web page (not just what I see on the screen, but everything below the fold as well) and then paste or export it as a picture.

1) Using prnt scrn doesn't really work for since I want to copy everything below the fold as well, and now just what is visible on the screen in the browser.

2) I've tried opening the page in MS Word and copying as an Enhanced Metafile, but that still doesn't paste the entire page (even though I have the entire page highlighted when I copy).

Note: I've tried pasting in Photoshop, Powerpoint, Paint and all of them have the same result.

Thanks in advance for the help!

There are some specialty screen-shot softwares out there that will do this, but if you want something simple and free, then look for the screen grab add-on for Firefox. It will make an image of the entire page regardless of the length. (There may be memory limitations)

I use Snag-It by Techsmith. A great program and very easy to use

I grabbed Snag-it and that seems to work pretty good. Thanks for the tip!
