You take screenshots of different parts of a webpage and are going to combine them to make a long and scrolling screenshot.

There are numerous image mergers on the market. It takes much time to find easy-to-use apps from the vast sea of software products. To save your time doing so, I will walk you through two image merging apps with which you can easily combine images in this article.

Go to the bottom left corner of the window. Move the zooming slider to zoom out the combined image. You can also click on "Edit"->"Fit Screen" to make the combined image automatically suit the preview panel.

Do you need to combine images? If so, make full use of two apps mentioned previously. Photo Stitcher allows you to combine an unlimited number of images but it is not a piece of freeware. OnlineConvertFree is totally free but it only lets you combine two images every time. Personally speaking, I prefer Photo Stitcher. It only costs 29 bucks for a lifetime license and is worth this price. If you have any questions about Photo Stitcher, leave your comment below.
