So, back in my Windows days, I was a fan of HyperSnap, a screen-capture tool that could “auto-scroll” Web pages, which saves one from having to capture one portion, scroll down, capture another portion, then bring those into an image editor, and stitch them.
On Mac OS X, no tool offers this functionality. But I just figured out a way to do it. Maybe somebody else did, but I couldn’t find it.
1. In your web browser (I use Safari), go to Page Setup.
2. In the Settings menu, select “Custom Paper Size”
3. Click “New”
4. Enter the dimensions for your paper — make sure it’s bigger than a typical web page you’d want (I’ve got 11″ x 33″)
5. Give those dimensions a name (e.g., “Screen Capture”)
6. In the Settings Menu, return to “Page Attributes”
7. In Paper Size, select your custom name.
8. On the web page you want to capture, select Print…
9. Choose “Preview…”
10. This will open the page in Preview. You can Command-C to Copy, and then Paste it into wherever you want it.
This might seem onerous, but you only have to do the basic set-up (1-7) once. From then on, it’s just “Print” to Preview, cut, and paste!
