6 Ways to Capture Better Web Site Screenshots

Take Better Screenshots

Taking a screenshot of the various web sites out there on the Web is usually done for a slew of reasons.  Sometimes it is done to help you debug a web application, other times it might be done to show off a future design.  No matter what your reason, I have six great Firefox add-ons that will make capturing an image of a web site a very easy thing to do.

Screenshot Pimp – Need a screen shot? Screenshot Pimp lets you easily save images of web pages with multiple options for selection, output destination, and image type.

Abduction! – Adds a right click option to take screenshots of an entire web page or just part of a web page to save as an image.

FireShot – This is a Firefox extension that creates screenshots of web pages (entirely or just visible part). Unlike other extensions, this plugin provides a set of editing and annotation tools.

Talon: Screen Capture & Aviary.com Quick Launch – Take screen shots and edit images directly from your browser with Aviary.com applications.

Snapper – This add-on allows users to designate an area of a web page for a focused snapshot, cutting out the additional work needed for cropping unnecessary information.

Screengrab – It will capture what you can see in the window, the entire page, just a selection, or a particular frame.  You can then save the screen capture as a file or to the clipboard.
