If you are writing tutorial posts in your blog then you have to take many screenshots of web pages. In this post I will discuss on how to take screenshot easily.
To take a screenshot we use many tools, but sometimes we have to minimize our browser or some of them don’t contain features like arrows sign, blurring options etc. So it takes much time.
To save my time I’ve been using a Google Chrome extension that works great for me to take quick screen shot. It’s called Awesome Screenshot.
Awesome screenshot helps you to capture a whole page or any portion, annotate it with rectangles, circles, arrows, lines and text, one-click upload to share. It has a blur option.
If you are using Chrome then you can download the extension from here . It’s also suitable with Firefox and Safari that you can download from here.
Before we move to the using tutorial of this extension, here are some benefits of using this.
- It saves your time.
- You don’t need to leave your browser.
- You can add arrows, rectangles, circles, lines and text in screenshot.
- Blur option helps you to hide sensitive information
How to Use Awesome Screenshot
Once you’ve installed the extension in your chrome browser you’ll notice Awesome Screenshot’s icon in your extension bar(besides on address bar).
Click on the icon. You will get three options – Capture Visible Part of Page, Capture Selected Area, Capture Entire Page. Click on your desire option.
To Annotate :
After taking the screenshot you can annotate it with rectangles, circles, arrows, lines and text. You can also erase the sensitive information with blur tool.
Click on Done if your editing is completed.
So what are you waiting for? Install this extension and start using this tool.
