Recently I had an issue where I needed to take a screenshot of an entire web page and since my monitor is fairly small on my laptop this is typically a pain. Luckily I discovered a Google Chrome Extension that makes accomplishing the task of taking a screenshot of an entire web page very easy. Below I describe installing and using the extension, which is called Screen Capture and was created by Google.
I have an iPod Touch 2G that is fairly messed up and both the power button and home buttons are currently not working properly which makes taking screenshots much harder than normal in iPhone firmware 2.X and 3.X. If you have installed Cydia however on your iPhone or iPod Touch then you can launch the screen capture from the command line without issue. Once you have taken a screen capture you can then email the photos to yourself or SCP (Secure Copy) them to your computer. To launch the iPhone screen capture utility from the command line follow the directions below.
Taking screenshots on the iPhone is simple but can be a very useful tool. I use this tool all of the time to describe how things work or describe cool iPhone features to people. The screen captures on the iPhone are saved as 320×480 pixel JPG’s which aren’t super high resolution but it will open in perfect clarity the same size as your iPhone screen.
