Suggested December 2023 How To Capture A Scrolling Screenshot On Mac, Ios And Ipados

A regular screenshot only captures what’s visible on the screen, leaving out content beyond the display area. On the other hand, a “Scrolling Capture” (or Scrolling Screenshot or Full Page Screenshot), captures everything outside your device’s screen in a single take.

Rather than taking multiple screenshots of different sections of a lengthy conversation or document, a scrolling screenshot saves you time and storage space. In this guide, we’ll show you the different ways to take scrolling screenshots on an iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

Capturing Full Page Screenshot on iOS and iPadOS

The native screenshot tool on your iPhone or iPad can capture the entire content of a webpage, a document, or an email as a single screenshot. Before you try the scrolling screenshot feature, take note of the following:

You can only take full-page screenshots on native Apple apps like Safari, Files, iBooks, etc.

Capturing a scrolling screenshot of a webpage only works on Safari. Third-party browsers like Chrome and Firefox are currently not supported.

Full-page or scrolling screenshots aren’t saved as images. iOS saves them as a PDF file.

With this in mind, follow the steps below to capture full-page screenshots on your iPhone or iPad.

1. Press the volume up and side button simultaneously to screenshot a webpage, an email, or a document. For iPhones with a Home button, press the side button and Home button simultaneously to capture a screenshot.

3. Tap the Full Page option to generate a full-page screenshot of the webpage or document.

5. Select Save PDF to Files.

6. Select the folder you want the file saved and tap Save. You can also rename the screenshot by tapping the auto-generated filename.

To view the PDF, open the Files app on your device and browse to the location where you saved the file.

Capture Scrolling Screenshot on Mac

There’s a built-in screenshot tool on macOS but it doesn’t capture scrolling screenshots. Interestingly, some apps (mostly web browsers) have this capability. In the next section, we’ll show you how to perform a full-page screen capture on Mac using Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.  

Screenshot an Entire Webpage in Safari

Safari has a built-in screenshot tool that captures and saves an entire webpage as an image. The tool is tucked away in Safari’s Developer menu, so it’s not exactly in plain sight. Follow the steps below to capture a scrolling screenshot of an entire page in Safari. 

2. Go to the Advanced tab, check the box next to the Show Develop menu in the menu bar, and return to the webpage.

3. Select Develop on the menu bar and select Show Web Inspector.

5. Give the screenshot a name, choose your preferred storage folder/location, and select Save to proceed.

Screenshot an Entire Webpage in Firefox

    Next, select Download to save the screenshot to your Mac.

    Screenshot an Entire Webpage in Chrome

    Chrome also ships with a built-in screenshot tool but, like Safari, it’s also hidden in the Developer section. Here’s how to access and use the screenshot tool to capture a whole webpage in Chrome.

    You can also launch Chrome’s Developer Tool menu by pressing F12 on your keyboard or using the Command + Shift + I shortcut.

    Use Third-Party Websites, Apps, and Extensions

    It appears that browsers are best-equipped to capture scrolling screenshots on Mac. If you need to take a full-length screenshot of content within another app, you’d have to use third-party snipping apps like Snagit. Note that some of these apps aren’t free. The developers often give a free trial period to new users but you’d have to pay some bucks for continuous usage.

    We mentioned earlier that iOS and iPadOS only capture scrolling screenshots with Safari and a few other iOS apps. Platforms like chúng tôi provide an alternative to non-Safari users. Web-Capture is an online screenshot service that lets you download full-screen images of any website to your device in several formats. 

    On the next page, you can choose to view the screenshot or download it to your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

    How To Take A Screenshot Of The Login Screen On Mac

    Mac OS X has some excellent screenshot tools available, both built-in and third-party. These can be very helpful, in the case that you need to quickly put a guide together to help someone troubleshoot his/her Mac or similar. One thing that the default screen capture tool can’t do is to take a screenshot of the login screen.

    Luckily, the procedure is not that difficult. It just requires a bit of patience, and two Macs. Both of them need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi, that’s all. We’ve detailed the entire process below, so check it out.

    To get started, you’ll need two Macs. In this case, my “first Mac” is the one I want to take the screenshot of, and the “second Mac” is the one I’ll be using to take the screenshot.

    Note: The “second Mac” doesn’t have to be a Mac. It can be any computer (Windows or Linux) that supports the SSH protocol. You can also run it from your Android phone, though you will need to have a rooted phone and install a Terminal app.

    Enable Remote Login on your First Mac

    The first step you need to take is to enable Remote login on your first Mac. Make sure both Macs are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

    Note: We won’t recommend following this guide while using a public Wi-Fi network, as remote logging into your other Mac over an open network may compromise your data. Proceed at your own risk.

    1. Open System Preferences on your first Mac.

    4. In the left hand checkbox window, enable the “Remote Login” option.

    5. In the Remote Login section, you’ll see a string of text saying “To log in to this computer remotely, type “ssh …………………..”

    Save this ssh string of text somewhere safe for quick access later.

    6. Log out of your Mac to get back to the login screen.

    Remote Login From Your Second Mac

    Now, follow the steps below on your second Mac:

    2. Type in the ssh string of text you noted down earlier. The complete command, after its written, will look something like this:

    3. Press Enter, and your second Mac should remotely log in to your first Mac. Once successfully logged in, your second Mac should show your first Mac’s public name in Terminal, as shown below:

    Now simply enter in the following two commands one by one into Terminal on your second Mac:

    Basically, what this command does is tell your second Mac to log access to the account’s Desktop on your first Mac.

    Enter the second command:

    This command will set the screenshot type to jpeg, and the file name to “loginwindow.jpeg”.

    That’s it. Now, when you log in into your first Mac, you’ll see a file on your Desktop named “LoginWindow.jpeg”, as shown below:

    This is the screenshot you took.

    Note: If you repeatedly need to take screenshots of your Mac’s login screen, be sure to first save each screenshot somewhere else before taking the next one, else your Mac will automatically overwrite the previous screenshot when you take a new one.


    If you need to take screenshots of your Mac’s login screen, you can do so easily, by remote logging into your Mac and following the steps above. Just be sure to use this guide carefully, because if this “remote-logging” feature gets into the wrong hands, it could be potentially dangerous, for you and your ever-so-precious data.

    How To Change The Screenshot Save Folder On Your Mac

    Taking screenshots is quite easy on macOS, but to a new Mac user with Windows experience, it may seem a bit confusing. Screenshots are saved directly to the Desktop as opposed to Windows’ style of pasting them to the clipboard or being saved in the “Pictures” folder. You might be used to that on your previous Windows system and might want to change it on macOS. Here we show you how to do both: change where your Mac screenshots are save, and save screenshots to the clipboard.

    How to change where screenshots are saved

    If you’re using macOS Mojave, changing the screenshot location is very easy. We’ve detailed the steps for this below:

    1. Press Command + Shift + 5.

    4. Navigate to and select a folder where you want your screenshots to be saved.

    5. From now on all of your screenshots will be saved to your specified location.

    If you’re using an older version of macOS, you’ll need to use Terminal to change the location where you screenshots will be saved.

    1. Select the folder you want to save your screenshots to. You can select or make a folder wherever you want to and name it whatever you like.

    3. Type in the following code:


    write location

    4. Press your keyboard’s spacebar to add a period after the line of code.

    5. Specify the location of your folder by dragging and dropping your selected folder onto the Terminal window. Alternatively, if you’re familiar with identifying and specifying folder locations, you can type the location in Terminal.

    6. Press Enter.

    7. Type in the following command to make sure the changes take place:



    3. Make sure you don’t delete the folder you created/specified for the screenshots.

    If at any time you want to revert to the original screenshot location (Desktop), type the following lines of code in Terminal and press Enter (after each line):


    write location ~



    How to save a screenshot to the clipboard

    As was mentioned earlier, the Print screen function in macOS works a bit differently compared to Windows. In Windows the screenshot is saved to the clipboard, after which you need to open up Paint, Photoshop or any other photo-editing software and paste the photo to get the actual JPEG/PNG screenshot file.

    This power feature is easier and useful if you’re just taking screenshots to add into a document and want to avoid the clutter of multiple screenshot files on your hard drive. Fortunately, you can also do the same on macOS:

    1. Press Command + Shift + 4 to take a standard screenshot.

    2. Press and hold Control while you use your mouse/trackpad to select the screen region you want to save to the screenshot.

    3. Your screenshot will be saved to the clipboard. You can now paste it wherever it’s needed.

    Alternatively, you can also use the method detailed above to change the default screenshot location to the clipboard. You won’t need to press Control at all. Simply select “Clipboard” in the Options menu:

    How To Clean Install Any Version Of Ios Or Ipados On Iphone And Ipad

    If your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is slowing down, performing a clean install of iOS or iPadOS might help speed it up. A fresh system software installation means you begin with zero third-party App Store apps, broken configurations, and corrupt settings, which could positively impact performance. A clean install can also fix problems you can’t resolve with standard troubleshooting.

    You’ve got a couple of ways to clean install iOS and iPadOS. The first method involves erasing all content and settings using nothing but your iPhone or iPad, while the second method requires reinstalling the system software via a Mac or PC.

    Table of Contents

    Clean installing iOS or iPadOS will erase your data, but you can always choose to create a backup of your files and settings beforehand. It’s then up to you to start all over from scratch or restore a backup and pick up where you left off.

    Erase All Content and Settings

    The iPhone and iPad feature an integrated “Erase This iPhone/iPad” tool that lets you quickly reset the device to factory defaults. It takes care of everything from creating a backup of your data to iCloud, deactivating Find My and Activation Lock, to wiping every bit of personal data off your device.

    The “Erase This iPhone/iPad” tool doesn’t technically reinstall iOS or iPadOS, but the procedure does restore the system software to a state similar to what you get from an iPhone or iPad right out of the box. It’s also considerably faster and more convenient than performing a restore via a Mac or PC.

    1. Open the Settings app via the Home Screen on your iPhone or iPad.

    3. Select Continue.

    4. Enter the device passcode of your iOS or iPadOS device.

    5. Select Finish Upload Then Erase to upload a copy of your data to iCloud. If you lack space in iCloud, create an offline backup via a Mac or PC. If you don’t want to create a backup, select Erase Now.

    Warning: If you don’t create a backup, you’ll permanently lose all data except for any that sync actively to iCloud—such as your photos, notes, and contacts. 

    6. Enter your Apple ID’s password and tap Turn Off to deactivate Find My and Activation Lock. You won’t see this screen if Find My is not active on your iPhone or iPad.

    7. Tap Erase iPhone/iPad to confirm you want to erase all media, data, and settings on your iPhone or iPad. Then, wait until the “Erase This iPhone/iPad” tool resets the device to factory defaults. That can take anywhere between 10-15 minutes. 

    Work your way through the Setup Assistant to set up your iPhone or iPad after the reset procedure. Once you get to the Apps & Data screen, select Restore from iCloud Backup or Restore from Mac or PC to restore from a backup. Or, select Don’t Transfer Apps & Data to begin using your iPhone or iPad as a new device.

    Restore Device via Finder/iTunes

    If you have access to a Mac or PC, you can perform an actual clean install of iOS or iPadOS using Finder or iTunes. Follow the steps below to disable Find My and Activation Lock, back up your iPhone or iPad, and reinstall the latest version of iOS/iPadOS using an IPSW (iPhone/iPad Software) file. This method is best suited if you have trouble using the “Erase This iPhone/iPad” tool above.

    Note: If you use a Windows PC, make sure to download iTunes from the Microsoft Store or the Apple website before you begin.

    2. Turn off the switch next to Find My iPhone/iPad and enter your Apple ID password to authenticate the action.

    3. Connect your iPhone or iPad to a Mac or PC via USB. Then, unlock your iOS or iPadOS device and tap Trust.

    4. Launch a new Finder window (if you use a Mac with macOS Catalina or later) or open iTunes. Then, select your iPhone or iPad on the Finder sidebar or the top-left of the iTunes window.

    5. Scroll down to the Backups section. Then, select Back up all of the data on your iPhone/iPad to this Mac/PC. If you want to back up Apple Watch health data and passwords, check the box next to Encrypt local backup. Then, select Back Up Now.

    6. Wait until Finder/iTunes finishes backing up the data on your iOS/iPadOS device.

    7. Scroll up to the Software section and select Restore iPhone/iPad.

    8. Select Restore and Update.

    9. Select Agree to accept the software update license terms.

    After reinstalling iOS or iPadOS, select Restore from this backup and pick a backup to restore your data. Or, choose Set up as new iPhone/iPad to begin using your iPhone or iPad as a new device.

    Try Recovery Mode or DFU Mode

    In most cases, simply restoring iOS or iPadOS to factory defaults should be more than enough to breathe new life into your iPhone or iPad or resolve persistent software-related issues. If that doesn’t help, use a Mac or PC to reinstall the system software.

    How To Mirror Windows Screen To Android, Ios And Mac

    Using Windows screen sharing to mirror your screen with another device can be very useful. You can use it to remotely control your Windows PC, access your data from anywhere you want, and it can even help you troubleshoot someone’s PC, without having to go to their house. There are a lot of great uses for screen sharing, and if you’re wondering how you can do this, don’t worry. In this article, we will tell you how to share your Windows PC’s screen over a network to an Android or iOS device, as well as a Mac:

    Windows Screen Mirroring with VNC Connect

    VNC Connect is an application that allows for Windows screen sharing over a network. You can use this app, along with the companion VNC Viewer, to share your PC’s screen to any device that has the VNC Viewer app, and is authorized to access your PC’s screen. The VNC Connect and Viewer app is available for Android, iOS, macOS, Linux, Chrome and almost all the other platforms you know of, so you can share your Windows screen to any of the devices. It’s also available for Windows, so you can share screen of one Windows PC to another.

    Note: I’m using VNC Connect to share my Windows 10 PC’s screen to my MacBook Air. The process should be similar when sharing to devices running other platforms.

    To use VNC Connect, and VNC Viewer for Windows screen mirroring, just follow the steps below:

    2. On the device you want to access Windows screen sharing on, launch the VNC Viewer app, and sign in with your VNC account. In the VNC Viewer app, you’ll be able to see the name of your Windows PC.

    What Are Lifestyle Photos And How To Capture Them

    What Are Lifestyle Photos?

    In recent years lifestyle photography has become a phrase more commonly heard in the world around us. With the growing trend of capturing authentic moments and showcasing experiences, it’s easy to see how lifestyle photography has become so popular. This photography genre captures the real moments of everyday life without posing, fancy lights, or preconception. Much of this genre is captured as real moments unfold and is a genre known for captivating images.

    In this article, you’ll learn what lifestyle photography is and the type of photos this genre is known for. Afterward, we’ll discuss a few actionable lifestyle photography tips and ideas to help you capture better lifestyle images for yourself!

    Let’s get started.

    What Is Considered Lifestyle Photography?

    Lifestyle photography is considered anything that documents the human experience, unposed and without prior planning. This photography style can range from capturing the mundane beauty of life at home to more unique experiences such as camping in the mountains. Any image that captures a raw and real representation of everyday life can be considered lifestyle photography.

    The most common example you might think of is people at home doing regular tasks. Things like cleaning the dishes, changing a diaper, or dealing with a crying child. In other instances, lifestyle photos capture other everyday things like getting a haircut or going to the store.

    Although none of those activities are necessarily exciting, a great lifestyle image will make it appear captivating. With the use of different rules of composition, natural lighting, and intentional lens choices, a photographer can turn a mundane moment into something more thought-provoking.

    With that said, lifestyle photography can be more than just hairdressers and family. Since it’s all about capturing the experience of life, there is a limitless range of images you could find in this genre.

    For example, let’s say you were taking photos during a long road trip. You might end up with images of friends laughing around a campfire, looking depressed at a truck stop, or salivating over something tasty. Since all of those images capture the lifestyle of being on a road trip, it’s safe to consider those images as “lifestyle” type photos.

    Now you start to see how broad this genre can really go. Humans like to do a lot of different things, and lifestyle photography can cover all of them.

    Types Of Lifestyle Photography

    Although lifestyle photography can be a broad genre, it breaks down into three different types called everyday, urban, and outdoor lifestyle photos.

    – Everyday Lifestyle

    Everyday lifestyle photography captures regular moments from someone’s day. Things like cooking dinner, going to the store, or changing a baby’s diaper. The mundane parts of our days that make for surprisingly thought-provoking images.

    This is the most common type of lifestyle photography and is where this genre has its origins. Using natural light and thoughtful composition to turn the regular parts of life into something beautiful.

    – Urban Lifestyle

    Urban lifestyle photography is the second category in this genre. This type captures lifestyle images in a city or other urban settings. For example, someone smoking a cigarette on the balcony of an apartment tower. The hustle and bustle of business peoples quickly shuffling down the sidewalks.

    These images blend with the genre of street photography, working to capture the everyday moments in an urban setting.

    – Outdoor Lifestyle

    The third type of lifestyle photography is outdoor lifestyle. This can range from hiking, skiing, camping, or any other outdoor activity. Essentially anything that captures people outdoors and spending time in nature.

    An example of outdoor lifestyle photography would be a group of friends sitting around a fire, someone riding their bike down a trail, or perhaps hosting a backcountry cookout.

    12 Lifestyle Photography Tips

    1. Try To Capture An Emotion

    A great lifestyle photo captures some kind of obvious emotion. Whether it be serenity, chaos, boredom, or love, it’s important that there’s some kind of emotion. Without this, it’s easy for your viewer to disconnect and not find your image as interesting.

    By capturing emotions, people will automatically resonate more with the image. It might make them think about an experience they had or bring back an old memory of their kids growing up.

    You can capture emotion by always keeping a close eye on the people you’re shooting; by getting good at “people watching,” you can better predict how they’ll react throughout the shoot.

    2. Look For Candid Moments Rather Than Posing

    The beauty of lifestyle photography is that it feels raw and candid. Especially when you’re hired to photograph a lifestyle shoot, it’s best to avoid posing your subjects. After all, when you pose a regular person, they end up looking posed. There’s no way around it.

    Instead, focus on giving your subjects an action to keep them occupied as you shoot. If you’re shooting more authentic lifestyle images of regular, everyday life, look at what people are doing.

    You’ll be able to capture a lot of great candid moments just by snapping photos when your subject least expects it.

    3. Make Your Subject Forget About The Camera

    For a lifestyle photo to look completely natural, you want your subjects to forget about the camera. Try to make it invisible, so they completely forget you’re taking pictures.

    When I say invisible, I don’t mean to hide it in your coat when you’re not shooting. Instead, engage with your subjects as if you have no interest in photographing them. After a short while, people’s minds lose focus on your camera and they begin to act more naturally.

    Once this happens, that’s your cue to start snapping photos when the moment arises. Perhaps they’ll become preoccupied with another task or be having a conversation with someone else. Alternatively, maybe you say something to them that you know will get a specific reaction.

    Whatever you do, try your best to make your subject feel like nothing’s different. You’re just hanging out with them, and the camera has no real significance.

    4. Be Aware Of Your Lighting

    Lighting is essential in photography. After all, bad lighting can make or break a photo. That’s why it’s especially important to be aware of the lighting when you’re taking lifestyle photos.

    Since you won’t be working with flashes to help set the scene, you’re faced with the task of only shooting with natural light. This can take some getting used to, but ultimately, you need to remember where the light direction is.

    For example, the main source of light outdoors is the sun. When you’re photographing your subject, different highlights and shadows will be created depending on their orientation to the sun. Since you can’t necessarily tell your subject to move (as it will remind them of the camera), move your feet and try to find where the light looks best.

    With a bit of practice, you’ll start getting a knack for figuring out how to compose your shot with lighting in mind.

    5. Give Your Subjects An Activity

    Particularly when you’re hired to photograph a lifestyle shoot, the best way to get authentic images is to give your subjects an activity. Just think of how awkward it can feel to be told to “be yourself” while knowing a lens is pointed your way.

    To ease the tension, giving an activity helps get your subject’s mind off the shoot. Better yet, it helps them to forget about the camera.

    Let’s say you’re photographing a family lifestyle shoot; it can be hard to get kids to cooperate the way you want. However, you can turn things into a game, and you’ll end up with heaps of candid reactions to photograph. Something like doing a race or seeing who can draw the best butterfly are easy examples of this.

    The same thing goes for adults. By suggesting any type of activity to occupy their thoughts, it’s far more likely that you’ll get the candid reactions you’re looking for.

    6. Always Be Ready To Take A Photo

    The interesting part about taking lifestyle photos is that you never know when the perfect shot will be. Since you’re not in control of posing your subjects, interesting moments can unfold at any moment. That’s why you always have to be ready.

    The best way to keep yourself ready is by staying on top of your camera settings. Try using a semi-automatic camera mode if necessary to help speed up the process. One mode I love shooting lifestyle images in is Shutter Priority (Av or S).

    In this camera mode, I can set a shutter speed manually; then, my camera will take care of the rest. That way, once the perfect moment arises, I know I’m set up and ready to go.

    7. Capture People Doing Something They’re Passionate About

    The best way to capturing genuine reactions is to capture people doing what they love. For example, let’s say you want to get lifestyle photos of your family. Perhaps your mom loves cooking, so you know that capturing her doing that would be a great option.

    Alternatively, think about the excitement in a kid’s face when they’re doing something fun. Maybe running around a playground or jumping off a dock at the lake.

    These are the types of moments that lifestyle photography is all about—real, authentic moments, capturing the spirit of human life.

    8. Keep The Shoot Light-Hearted

    Whenever you’re taking photos with people, paid or not, it’s a good idea to keep things light-hearted. Try not to force any expectations on your subjects, or it can make things feel tense.

    Instead, act casually when shooting lifestyle images. Pretend like you don’t have any particular agenda, and you’re just hanging out. Once again, this helps your subjects act more naturally and forget about your camera completely.

    9. Mix Up Your Angles

    It’s easy to get so caught up in capturing a moment that you don’t consider other angles. After taking a few images from one position, try finding another spot you can shoot from.

    The change doesn’t have to be that significant. Simply shooting higher or lower or turning your camera sideways can completely change the feel of your image.

    Ultimately, you want to capture a series of great moments, but make sure they each have their own unique perspectives. Otherwise, you’ll end up with an entire shoot with a bunch of similar-looking images.

    10. Don’t Stage The Environment

    As a photographer, you probably feel the need to make everything look “picture perfect.” You might want people to fix their hair, change their shirt, or tidy up what’s going on in the background. When you’re shooting lifestyle photos, you have to resist all of those urges.

    The purpose of lifestyle photography is to capture real moments as they happen. Not how you wish they happened. If the background is a mess, or people aren’t wearing the perfect outfits, so be it. That’s how things are.

    And since the goal of lifestyle images is to document the every day, you’re doing just that by not staging the image. Everything in the image should look the way it naturally does. Otherwise, that completely defeats the purpose of capturing life as it happens.

    11. Look For Unique Features In A Space

    Composition is one of the most important parts of lifestyle photography. Without thoughtful framing, it’s unlikely your images will have as much impact. However, every space you shoot in will have different elements to work with. From doorways, street lights, or messy floors, it’s all different.

    As you’re shooting, keep an eye out for features of an environment that make it unique. In a house, it might be a unique shaped staircase. In the city, it may be an interesting pedestrian tunnel. In the outdoors, it may be a beautiful mountain backdrop behind your subject.

    Whatever it is, identify what makes the space you’re in unique. By working with these unique features, you can guarantee more interesting lifestyle photos.

    12. Take A Lot Of Photos

    It’s extremely unlikely that you’ll capture one or two photos and end up with the perfect lifestyle shot. Don’t be afraid to be a little trigger happy and take a whole whack of photos. Each photo you take increases your odds of capturing the perfect moment.

    That’s why for DSLR shooters, it’s often better to leave your camera on single-shot and only press the shutter multiple times when necessary.

    Now you know a little more about what lifestyle photography is, and 12 actionable tips to take better lifestyle photos. This is a unique genre of photography since it documents rather than creates. However, it’s a lot of fun and builds many useful skills as a photographer that can transfer over to other areas of your work.

    Happy Shooting!
