I don’t see how you could technically get a ‘HD’ screenshot. How can a screenshot possible be of a higher resolution than that of your computer screen? It’s a 1:1 image of the exact pixels that you see on your screen - by definition. Unless you’re saving it as a JPG rather than a lossless format, there’s no quality difference between screenshots.

Or do you mean that you want to make a screenshot of your website on a larger screen? If so, you could use “http://browsershots.org/”:http://browsershots.org/, but it only goes up to 1600px, and I’m confident your screen is already around this size :wink:

That really is awesome! I’m already using a hacked-together script that automatically uploads my screenshots to my Public Dropbox and copies the link to my clipboard, but the annotation feature on this gem made me install it regardless :sarcasm:
