Did you ever need to take a screenshot of what you were looking at on your system's display? Of course you have; whether it's to show somebody that cool new something you just discovered, or to try to figure out why your careful coding went so wrong, it's important to be able to grab what's showing on your monitor.

Sometimes you just need to to capture an image or a dialog box; other times you need to grab an entire web page. That's okay, as long as your page isn't any longer than your display. Once you add scroll bars, however, it gets dicey. Now you can't grab the whole page with standard screen capture tools. You could try PDF-ing the page, but then it's going to turn into a multiple-page PDF file, and that's not right either.

Paparazzi! is a tool that lets you take a picture of your page the right way. it actually grabs the entire web page as a single image file. The fact that that file is now hundreds—or thousands—of pixels long is not a problem. You can choose the file format that makes the most sense for your purposes as well.

A free Mac download, Paparazzi! runs under OS X 10.3 and later.
