Paparazzi!

25 September 2019

Make user-defined size screenshots of websites (beta).

Overview

Paparazzi! is a small utility for OS X that makes screenshots of webpages. This very simple tool takes screenshots of websites which do not fit on one screen. You specify the desired width, minimal height and the URL. The program displays a preview and you can save the screenshot to PNG, JPEG, TIFF, or PDF.

What's new in Paparazzi!

Version 1.0b11:
Fixes:
  • Fixed display of the status item in light mode on Mojave.
  • Batch captures started on launch by using, e.g., the “Add to Batch Capture” service with batch auto-start enabled should no longer use incorrect settings.
  • Disabled PDF metadata due to an issue PDFDocument corrupting output. Paginated (capture-by-scrolling) PDFs will still have issues.

This is great software: Easy to use, plain simple and to the point, gets the job done. Essential features, nothing missing, not too much. Wonderful! Thank you dear developer! Works fine for me in Snow Leopard 10.6.1 as well.

Would be great for the Size Presets to include iPads and iPhones. I often need those sizes for responsive web design.

Doing about the same job as Web Snapper for free is great. One flaw, though, is it can't cut pdfs into pages — It would actually be nice to also cut other formats into pages, but AFAIK neither Web Snapper does that.

I love this app! I don't know why -- I rarely need to take a screen capture of a web page. But here's the thing: When I do, Paparrazi does it, and does it well! It seems like it's the "missing screenshot" utility that ought to be present in every browser, but isn't. Thanks, Nate!

Seems to be working well with Sierra and certainly more reliable than most web browsers for accurately exporting a PDF of a web page. Something useful would be a browser extension that allows you to export via Paparazzi, perhaps as a share menu option in Safari.

Excellent little tool, very full featured, allows you to interact with the web page - and therefore log in to sites that require it - before taking your screenshot. Has multiple standard viewport sizes built-in, and allows you to enter custom ones, so you can take shots of webpages at any arbitrary size. A very *big* con, however, is that pages that have a top section that take up the entire height of the browser window do not display correctly. Paparazzi seems to report the viewport height as being the height of the entire rendered page, so the screenshot comes out showing only the top section, stretched out to fill the entire page... This problem can be seen on this page: http://html5up.net/uploads/demos/fractal/ I hope Paparazzi is still being developed, and that this will get fixed. It's a very promising tool.

Very nice app, awesome that it's free. Works pretty much flawlessly. I discovered that sometimes when it doesn't quite get the picture you want (since it has to actually load the url you give it again, and sometimes it loads differently in the paparazzi window), there is a trick. 1) save the webpage that you want it to take a snapshot of as a webarchive. a) I only know how to do this in Safari, all you do is press command+S, and save it to your desktop as a web archive. easy. 2) open up the web archive in safari, and copy the location (it will be something like "file:///Users/Desktop/blah.webarchive") 3) put that location in the paparazzi URL box, and it will load exactly what you saved as a web archive. I hope that somebody finds this tip helpful! It's a great app!

*truncated articles when saved as a pdf* Apparently there is a limitation on the size of a page that may be captured when saving in pdf format. For example, the following page will look fine in the preview pane, but will be truncated in the final output: http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/117/features-message-in-a-bottle_Printer_Friendly.html I only just noticed this bug, and looking through my archives, I see that I have a bunch of incomplete pdf files. ack.

A fine application that I use often. Some things I would like to see: 1. An updated crop feature; it currently confuses me. Personally, I would like to select what I want saved/croppped in the preview window, because I am not very good at the guessing currently required. 2. A way to automatically add the captured webpage url to the file details / spotlight comments section. 'Tis handy to know whence I grabbed the webpage. thanks for sharing this application!

There's a beta of 0.5 up on the site now, at http://www.derailer.org/paparazzi/Paparazzi!%200.5b3.dmg . Beta because the help files aren't done and some things need to be tweaked, but if you've been having issues with 0.4.3 or want to use batching or Automator stuff, there it is. It won't work on 10.3.9, though; it crashes on startup (I fixed one crash and had it crash again, in another place, so I decided I should at least put something out for the 10.4 people :/).

It would be great if a greater pixel value of 16,000 was available (more-so on the length, than the width). At the moment, I can't capture a website, because it is falling short by around 1,000 pixels. I've tried varying the width, to compensate text-wrapping, but I still can't manage to get it within the 16,000 maximum value. Can this be fixed to a much higher value? Other than this, I just cannot stress enough how absolutely GREAT this application is! It's exactly what I've been looking for, for such a long time. Thank you, onlyone-jc.

Cool program - but it needs to work with PithHelmet. Ideally it would actually load the page in Safari and capture what Safari's rendering, so font preferences/user style sheets/ad blockers work the same as they do in the browser - otherwise it's not capturing what I see.

This is a great app. Very useful, and works like a charm. As a future enhancement, scheduling would be a cool feature, i.e you could tell the app to take a snapshot of a certain page at a certain time each day or each week, and automatically put it in a specified place or even put it in an iPhoto album. Of course, I can't ask too much with this being a free app! Thanks!

This is a note to say thank you for a WONDERFUL, USEFUL, and easy to use program-that I've already added to my Startup Login prefs!! What a imagnative idea! I believe this application has many wonderful uses I haven't even begin to think of yet! Thank you from someone who has almost no money to spend for Mac programs (I'm disabled and live on a small pension). I don't know if you can appreciate what something like this means to someone like me who loves the Mac-but who can seldom afford to buy the great programs that creative developers like you make available. This is a program that I would have wanted to BUY-and I would probably have found the money for it. But making it available for free..well....nuff said ;-) Max

A small and simple app, that concentrates on doing one thing - and does it well. No bloat, no fuss, just quick and simple grabs. Version 0.3 is a real move forward, with the new launch-and-grab-by-favelet feature being a particular favourite. Great stuff!

Since it does not have a build in browser, I cannot navigate sites that require login. For eg. I want to it to snap my administration area of my blog, but i cannot do that. NO snapz pro is not an option cause it cannot do scrollable webpages. I have to take multiple snapshots and stich them together

Great app. The developer seems to be very responsive, since earlier today I reported a bug in other website and he is already releasing a fix. Unfortunately I have a problem: there are sites (www.macupdate.com, for example) that keep Paparazzi's progress bar going and going, but nothing happens. It just hangs. Other websites (http://discussions.info.apple.com) render fast and with no problem. I do not have problems accessing any of them using Safari or other browser. Other than that, the app works fine.

Can't even tell if this is good or bad if it keeps on crashing right at the start. Maybe I should say, "It never starts". Or I should say that your software didn't do anything wrong coz it DIDN'T DO ANYTHING at all. Will it get better or worse? Wake up man!!! Don't waste your time and others too.
