Online screen capture (still image)?
Amongst many others will take an image of a webpage for you, these tools are not taking images of what you actually see, they are taking images of what their server sees.

Image of what I’m seeing online? – browser addon – browser addon – browser addon, Firefox only; recommends Java no downloads; requires Java – MS Windows only; requires application install; depends on .NET framework – download for MS Win or Mac OSX; snapshot or screen video – “snagit”; MS Win or Mac version

Will take images from your local computer and allow you to edit them online, upload them and send them to your friends or customer support or whoever. These do require installation of either an app or an add-on depending on your browser and OS.
