You didn't say whether you are working from PC or Mac. You did say that you
wanted a screen shot of the entire page, not just a portion of the page.
The quick and dirty on a PC:
1. Hit the PrintScreen/SysRq key.
2. Open PhotoShop.
3. Press CTRL-N to create a new file.
4. Press CTRL-V to paste down the screen image.
Note, you purists out there, that I did mention "dirty."
You can paste this Windows-provided screen shot in most applications. You
can't control anything about it, but it works and is quick.
The drawbacks are plenty if what you want is to manipulate a portion of the
resultant image of the original HTML page - especially if you want to
increase the size of the cropped portion of the image. Resolution is modest
to start with and can get worse.
