One of the most useful utilities available for all major platforms are screenshot tools. Screenshots are a great way to make those boring and complicated tutorials easy. Including images with text adds color to it, and makes it more interesting for the reader. Moreover, there are times when you can explain something only with words, and a screenshot does wonders for the author in getting the message across, and for the readers to understand exactly what the writer meant. Imagine how bland the articles here at AddictiveTips would look if we stop adding screenshots with the text. I have always liked this quote, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ – it stands true for screenshots as well. Windows also comes packed with Snipping Tool that provides all their is to capture most kind of screens. Previously, we have also covered some very good applications for taking high quality screenshots, such as Shotty, which finely preserves Aero effect in screens and Greenshot, one of the best screen taking tools. However, both of these utilities do not allow you to take screenshots of a complete webpage. Yes, taking screenshots of entire webpage has its own good reasons. Worry not though, as TipCase Web Snapshot is here to get this job done for you . It is a portable application for Windows that lets you easily capture the full-page screenshots of web pages, with as little effort as there is.
This is one of the easiest screenshot taking tools that I have come across. To take a screenshots, just run the application and enter the URL of the required page in the input field and click OK button.
It will take some time to load the webpage, depending on how much information is available there. Once the web page is downloaded, you can save it as a BMP file from the File menu at the top left corner of the main interface. You can also copy the downloaded web page to clipboard as an image.
The main limitation of the application is the lack of default formats available to save the screenshot. It only supports saving the image in BMP format. The developer should at least include all the popular image formats, such as JPG, PNG, TIFF etc. The application has a memory footprint of around 4 MB, and works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
