Quick tip : take a screenshot of a FULL web page

The fastest way to take a screenshot of a web page is to use "Pint Screen" an copy entire screen to clipboard. The problem is that if the web page you want to save as an image is larger than you screen resolution this method can be very time consuming and requires multiple "Print Screen" screenshots and recomposition of the whole image. A quick solution to this problem is to use Firefox and a free extension (Page Server Basic). After you install it browse to the page, right-click on it and choose "Save Image of Entire Page As..." from the drop-down menu. Here's a quick example of the resulting image for this blog (click on it to see the larger version):

I prefer to use a Firefox Extension called Screengrab. I've been using it for a while and I've never had any problems. You can find it here:
