Have you ever wanted to capture an entire web page to a .pdf, .png, .jpg etc? Of course you could do it the hard way and take screenshots while you scroll down but the result of that ends up in a less efficient bundle of images especially if the page you are capturing is miles long. But wait! There’s another way! Printing to .pdf! Safari can print a .pdf of your web page. The down side to this is that it is divided into pages and only shows printable content. Introducing Paparazii!

Paparazzi! is a web page capturing utility designed with the user in mind. Simply enter the URL of any web page and click the big “Capture” button. Paparazzi! shows you a preview of that web page. Click the “Save Image As…” button to, of course, save your image. Now you have a choice of file types. JPEG, PDF, PNG, and TIFF. I definitely recommend the PDF file type. It saves everything including the text. Choose whether or not to include a thumbnail icon, and hit “Save”. Walah! The captured web page is now saved in a perfect image file.

  1. Seems nice, but what do you use it for? The few times I’ve needed to save a site I used Safari’s Web Archive feature. I guess those only open in Safari though…

  2. Pingback: Saving websites as images with Firefox at

  3. Are you planning on adding a command line interface to this? I’d love to be able to kick this off daily to download a png of my website so I could track it’s change over time.
