How to Take Scrolling Screenshots on Any Android Device

You probably take screenshots all the time to either share a conversation or an image. Sharing them is easy when all you have to send is a screenshot or two, but what if you need to send various?

Instead of bombarding your friend with multiple screenshots, you can take and send a scrolling screenshot. A scrolling screenshot is when you take one long screenshot that captures what various screenshots would cover but in one image. Taking these kinds of screenshots is not as hard as you think and it will definitely save your time and bandwidth.

An app that takes great scrolling screenshots that you may not have heard of is LongShot for Long Screenshot. It’s entirely free and easy to use. When you open the app, you’ll see an option to Select Images, Capture Web Page, and Capture Screenshot.

With the “Capture Screenshot” option, the app will take a screenshot of every page you visit online so you can put them together later. For the “Capture Web Page” option, you’ll need to enter the URL of the site where you want to take the scrolling screenshot.

Tap on the “Set Start Position” button to start capturing and on the “Ends Here and Capture” button to wrap things up. The app will then show you a preview of the screenshot and option to either share it or take a new one. Once you’re done, you can go to your device’s gallery to view the screenshots you’ve taken.

Stitch & Share: Big Screenshot has more features to offer than the previous app. Besides having a better design, it will also allow you to crop and draw on your screenshots before you share them. If you use the free version, you can only use two colors to draw. If you want access to more color, you’ll need to upgrade to Premium.

The app lets you draw perfect lines so you can cross out any vital information from the screenshot. The downside is that you can only draw horizontal lines. You can only draw on the screenshots when you combine the screenshots you already have.

Once they’ve been connected, you’ll see a paintbrush icon at the top right that will automatically let you draw in either black or yellow. Black is an excellent option to erase sensitive data and yellow to highlight any text.

Stitch & Share also allows you to combine screenshot and images into one. The app can also connect GIFs together but will later only display them as images. To take screenshots from the web, tap on the “Automatic Capturing” option and open whatever it is you want to take a screenshot of.

Tap on the floating button to begin and slowly scroll. A preview of the screenshot will appear in the top left-hand corner of your display. When you’re done, tap on the “Save” button and the screenshot will be automatically saved in your device’s gallery.

Scrolling screenshots are very helpful since they won’t take up too much storage on your device. They will also allow you to save time by being able to see them all in one place and not have to swipe who knows how many times.  Do you find scrolling screenshots helpful?
