Page design collaboration tools

Are there tools that (a) capture the appearance of a page as displayed
in a browser, from top to bottom without being confined by the vertical
extent of the viewport; (b) allow the presentation of the capture to
reviewers and gave them tools to create notes in the margins and draw
arrows connecting the notes to the parts of the page to which they
referred; and (c) allow the capture and comments to be saved and printed?

For b and c hopefully someone else will have ideas, for a you might try Browsershots

It may be along the lines of what you're looking for.

Given that "as dislayed by a browser" incluses scrollbars if the image is
bigger than the viewport, and you will have to scroll and paste bits
together, Windows + Paint can do all that, if very inelegantly.

Thanks, but as I said, "without being confined by the vertical extent of
the viewport"!
