    Interesting method, however when I looked in the media tab they only have thumbnail sizes and these are no good when you enlarge the image which blurs the text. I just copied the URL from the pop out browser on Magster, copied it into the normal firefox browser, then captured whatever I wanted from the zoomed in page. Unfortunately fireshot, my goto Screenshot capture, does not allow me to capture the whole page including what is hidden unless you are able to select the area and scoll down to capture the whole page; unfortunately you cannot do this unless you have sufficient knowledge to debug the page to capture the scroll edits that are hidden. If there was a way to allow the media tab to set to capture the whole image and not as a thumbnail, then it would save so much trouble.
