There are times when we need to take a full webpage screenshots, but it’s not always easy. Such functionality is often provided by advanced screenshot tools like Snag It – and most other screenshot programs lack this feature.
It doesn’t make sense to buy or even install a complete program for taking a few full-page screenshots. Is there is a good and quality alternative for taking full-page screenshots? Thankfully, there is and its very easy and convenient to use.
It’s called the “Webpage Screenshot” Extension for Google Chrome. It’s an incredibly useful addon, with several added features, which effectively converts Google Chrome into a quality image capture tool.
Webpage Screenshot Usage:
Simplicity is the hallmark of this extension. One click to take the picture, one click to edit it and one click to share or save it. That’s about it.
The full webpage screenshots are of surprisingly good quality and are just as clear as the original website. It’s difficult to figure out that the screenshot has been taken by a browser-based tool and not a professional image tool.
This extension uses the “CaptureVisibleTab“ command defined by Chrome developers. Since they constantly improve the quality of this function – the extension would get better with time – adding more features.
Once you install this extension, you would get a new “camera” icon in the extensions bar at top right. Whenever you need to take a screenshot just click on the icon.
You can choose to take an “all page screenshot” or that of a visible part of the page.
Once the screenshot is taken you have the option edit it by either cropping it or adding notes and other images for explanation, if required.
You can choose the shapes provided to add tips to the screenshot – right within the browser.
Once the screenshot is taken you can either Save, Share or Print the screenshot. The options are present in the editor window on top right.
Webpage Screenshot – Options:
There aren’t many configurable options available in this extension. You can change the header and footer text that appears with the screenshot.
The other option is to select the default image file type that the image would be saved in. You can either choose to save the image as a JPEG or PNG according to your requirements.
