How can I capture an entire web page as an image?

I would like to capture an entire web page as an image. The problem I am facing now is if I use Alt+Print Screen or Snagit, it will only capture the part of the web page that is shown on the screen. The web page is more than a screenful long and you have to scroll down to see the rest of it. Is there any free tool I could use that would, for example, be able to enable me to scroll down and select the entire web page to capture the image?

I tried what you suggested, i.e., printing it out as a PDF. It works, however, the only problem is that  the web page I am trying to capture is a form and the PDF does not display the outlines of the text boxes.

ok.. If you are using windows 7 or even windows server. You do get an option to print it to Microsoft XPS document writer. Print it to xps printer and see the outcome by opening the file in xps viewer. If the output of xps viewer is ok then you can again print the xps document to a pdf printer..

Otherwise if the other solution doesn't work out then you need to try different PDF Printers..

If you have Adobe Acrobat not Adobe Reader.. you can also try with that for possible best outcome....

I did what you suggested, i.e., printing it as an XPS document, opening it up in XPS Viewer and then printing it again as a PDF. Unfortunately, when I opened it up as a PDF, it didn't look very good. It had a lot of gray shading in the textboxes.

I already had Snagit installed on my computer and tried it earlier but it didn't capture the full web page (only the part that appeared on the screen). However when I switched to IE, it works (a scroll button appears that allows me to capture the entire webpage).

Your suggestion might have worked too, but since I already got what I needed, I did not try it out.
