Any software that could generate screenshot like this [pic]
« on: March 14, 2009, 02:13:06 AM »


I made this screenshot by hand, with a minor mistake (two scroll buttons).

Is there any tool out there that could make screenshot like this? Auto scroll capture with window borders?

Yes, there are several, I think. When you capture the scrolling window, you are simply asked to choose, by placing your mouse, whether the frame should be included or not. I made this one easily, using the $20 FastStone Capture. You can always edit your snapshots, in the in-build editor:

Thank you but you didn't get what I mean. Can you get a screenshot of this current whole webpage with browser frame?

I cannot imagine that should be possible.

SnagIt does let you do this, provided the window isn't maximized.

To capture all the content + the status bar just specify a height that exceeds the amount of content in the window, it doesn't capture anything beyond the window.

SiteShoter maybe?

SiteShoter is a small utility that allows you to save a screenshot of any Web page into a file. It automatically creates hidden window of Internet Explorer, loads the desired Web page, and than save the entire content of the Web page into an image file (.png, .jpg, .tiff, .bmp or .gif).

I'm pretty sure HyperSnap 6 can do this.  I use its autoscroll feature all the time, and I just tried it to include the window frame, and it worked.  It's certainly worth a try: http://www.hyperionics.com/.

That's an active window that electronixtar is showing.
Not a web page.

For web pages, I use FireShot.
It can do a scrolling whole page or the visible portion.

https://addons.mozil...S/firefox/addon/5648

For any others I use ScreenShot Capture.

http://www.donationc...hotcaptor/index.html

It can capture an active window or do a scrolling window if it takes more then the screen.

Could you explain what you mean by an "active window" as opposed to a web page?  Thanks.

web page is anything in your internet browser

Thanks, cmpm, for your quick response.  I've never used google talk, but if it has a vertical scroll bar, I think probably HyperSnap 6 and some of the other programs mentioned here can create a shot like the one that started this thread.

Yeah, HyperSnap is 20 or 30 dollars.

ScreenShot Capture is free.
SSC will add the scroll bar to the screen shot.
"Grab Windows Object or Scrolling Window",
is the command from the tray-then press control and shift and click inside the program.

Thank you nosh, cyberdiva. SnagIt worked! I think SnagIt is so big for a reason.

To capture GTalk, the Extended Window Capture didn't work, I used some "Gray Button Activator" hack input height and got it captured.  ;D

Just to clarify -- screenshot captor can already capture scrolling windows -- the new idea is a function to manually let you specify target size of a window which would be resized programatically and then captured and returned to original size.

I use Windows Enabler but if you google "enable greyed out windows controls", you will find out other similar tools.

Thank you PhilB66

I have a similar app but much smaller, sorry it's in Chinese but it's easy to understand, switch to any window and check the box and there you go :-)

It's freeware and freely redistributable and could be freely modified.

Thanks guys,

I've heard of these utilities but I was wondering what the connection between enabling a button(?) and making Extended Window Capture work was.  :tellme:

Edit: Oh! OK, the penny dropped... you enabled the greyed out text input box for specifying height. Nice! Off to get one of these utilities now. :)

Could this be done after the capture with another program?
Or even with what program used to open the screenshot could allow original dimensions.
Taking note of the dimensions before the capture.

yes i was thinking actually that a general purpose frame effect tool that put a frame around any image that looks like a window dialog would be useful..

FSCapture is another one, that does scrolling windows and it's free for home use:

you enabled the greyed out text input box for specifying height.

I'm not sure why you need to specify height if you've got an auto-scroll mechanism.  Can't you just scroll as far as you need, without specifying in advance?   Admittedly, I'm most familiar with HyperSnap, which works that way.  The only time I have to specify a size in HyperSnap is if I want to do an extended horizontal capture.  I have the feeling I'm missing the point here, and I'd appreciate someone clueing me in.  TIA.
