Pro tip: Take Full-Site Screenshots in Safari

How to take a full-site page screenshot if you're a Safari user.

File -> Export as PDF. Then, upload that PDF to photoshop and do whatever it is you're trying to accomplish.

Forget all of those Chrome browser extensions, this is simple, quick and stops you from downloading yet another browser extension.

I just downloaded Snagit. (

I use Chrome so can't do the Safari tip but this has a very straightforward way to capture scrollable screenshots of any sections of the page. That then becomes a hi-res PDF that you can zoom into and obviously share as well. Highly recommend.

That brings back memories—SnagIt was one of the first tools I paid for when I started writing about tech full-time. Nice to see it's still going strong!

That's super cool—thanks for sharing! I've used Safari's Print as PDF option for forever, but always opened Firefox when I needed to make a full-page screenshot.

Take full page screenshot in Firefox

Which, for what it's worth, it's easier now in Firefox to take full-page screenshots, too. Open the page you want, click the 3-dot menu in the address bar, select Take a screenshot, then choose to capture what you see or the full page, and save the picture. This used to be something you could activate from the console in Firefox Developer Tools, so cool to see it now more accessible if still hidden.
