A picture paints a thousand words. That is quite true, do you agree? Today, with more and more teams working remotely, the importance of visual communication grows exponentially. Our blog already covered this – when you show rather than tell, you save tons of time and convey meaning more effectively.
If you asked the members of a hybrid team what form of visual communication they use most – the answer, most definitely, would be – a screenshot. Let’s narrow down the topic a bit and have a look at what webpage screenshots are and how to work with them. In this article, we’ve compiled the best expert tips and life hacks for taking and using webpage screenshots.
How to Take a Webpage Screenshot?
Most probably, you have taken a screenshot at least once and know that a screenshot (also called a screencap or screengrab) is an image that shows the contents of a computer display. What you might not know is that you can capture not only your screen but take a full webpage screenshot including the sections that you have to scroll for. Sounds unbelievable, but it’s true! Instead of taking a screenshot of the screen, then scrolling down and taking another screenshot, and then repeating that again, again, and again, you can get an excellent quality screenshot of a whole webpage in one click. All you need is special software.
“When do I need a full webpage screenshot?” you might ask. When it comes to situations like these, you’ll be able to avoid unnecessary meetings. Suppose, you ordered a new design of your website and need to give feedback to a designer; or you’re a copywriter and need to convince a client to change the order of the sections with content on the site; or you are working for a marketing agency and have a task to analyze the efficiency of the client’s product page – in all these situations a full page screenshot is invaluable.
