How do you take full length screenshots

Hey,

I’m wondering how you take full length screenshots of your WordPress themes when they have features like sticky nav bars or ‘back to top’ buttons. Because when I try and take screenshots of such themes they don’t like right, but I know there must be a way…

So how do you guys do it?

You can try this

I can’t get Sciweavers to work at all (it’s outputting blank pages) and Awesome Screenshot is good but it doesn’t deal well with parallax effects.

Say you were trying to take a full screen capture of this theme, for example. How would you do that?

You can use snapshot in Chrome…

install maxthon browser, it have the option to save page as image and you will get the whole page like a screenshot

Created with Chrome + Screen capture (by Google) + GIMP to fix last parallax section.

Thanks Original. What did you do in GIMP to fix it? I have Photoshop but I assume the process would be the same.

I still reckon there’s a screenshot tool out there somewhere that can cope with parallax! If anyone knows of one, please post.

Well the issue here was not with the tool. Even if I scroll manually, this issue happens with last parallax image (it's edge shows up too soon).

I just injected some custom css to fix that, took a snipp with desktop screenshot tool and pasted that over original part in GIMP.

If you have Mac I recommend you Paparazzi. This is amazing application to take screenshots with different resolutions:

We tried them all, and ended up with this one being the best! https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/nimbus-screenshot/bpconcjcammlapcogcnnelfmaeghhagj?hl=en
