Some of us have practices of saving website screenshots for comparisons or references. What we do generally is Press the Print Screen button on the keyboard, paste it on image editing applications like Photoshop and then save it. Or you can also use Firefox Addons that let you take screenshots. Well this will be a kind of fun if you need to screenshot just a few webpages. But what if you want to have screenshots of a whole bunch of sites for some reason? It will take a lot of time. But don’t you worry, WebShots will let you take screenshots of websites with much ease and all you’ll have to do is enter the webpage URL that you want to capture. You can download WebShots here.
The websites screenshots can be saved in JPG, GIF, BMP and PNG file formats. You can have the output as full sized images or just thumbnails. You’ll just need to enter the URL of the webpage and specify the location for saving the screenshot. The screenshots are taken with respect to a page’s layout in Internet Explorer. The software automatically detects the page width and height and then captures the whole page automatically. So, if a page is very long, whole of it will be captured resulting an image of large height. But you can also choose to capture just a part of it.
If you want, you can also take a screenshots of a lot of websites in a single go. Just create a text file with a list of the sites you wish to captures and then import it to webshots.
