WebShot is a simple utility that gives you the ability to take screenshots and thumbnails of webpages or websites. You can take screenshots of a single webpage or screenshots of multiple webpages in batch mode.
The freeware edition does color screenshots via the graphical user interface and the freeware command line interface is limited to grayscale screenshots. You can purchase full featured command line versions of WebShot.

This version seems a bit shaky and gives odd results with some sites that worked fine in v1.74. One of the downsides about this app running outside of a browser environment is that it doesn't read layout preferences stored in cookies. Not sure how they would fix that, but it would be a really nice addition, especially for the free version. It's still a cool app, but if it were a bit more robust, it would be even better.

This is worth looking at. I will do more testing, but it seems like it works well right out of the box. Cut and paste your URL and it nails it to a single image file for you. Gotta like that.
Give this URL a shot and see the results:
I used to stitch things together in Paint Shop Pro, but this seems way easier. Thanks for the Free version of this app, man. :)
Two minor things.
1 - CTRL-A does not function as one would expect in the URL field. So, when you copy the new URL to the clipboard, and enter the URL text field, CTRL-A does not auto select the entire string so that you can do a CTRL-V to replace the existing contents with the new contents.
2 - The app does not remember the screen position by default. Each time I run the app I have to move it over to the left or right so it doesn't get in the way of the browser window, or the graphic app that displays the contents of the finished screen image.
Reviewing 1.64 (Dec 18, 2008)
That's WebShot version 1.65, not 1.64, and the link does download 1.65 correctly.
Whatever, fully functional, and this latest 1.65 seems faster even than previous versions. Nice work.

Never tried it, never will. NirSoft has SiteShoter: free, portable, and you can save to jpg, png, gif, bmp, or tiff.
