Easy Web Screenshots In Google Chrome With Browser Extension

Advertisement

Every now and then we may want to share some webpage that we are viewing with the rest of the world. It can be a cool website, or something you want to point out in a page, or anything else, for that matter. While you may use the Windows 7 snipping tool or the Print Screen function of Windows OS, first saving the image, then editing it, saving it again and then having a usable image can be frustrating. Luckily, someone heard this problem and thought to come up with a solution by the name of Google Chrome extension Explain and Send Screenshots.

Using this very useful browser extension, you can take a snapshot of the website you’re viewing, crop out a section, draw arrows, lines or circles to point out things, annotate portions right from within the browser itself. The snapshot is then uploaded to pict.com whereby you can email its link to someone, share it of Facebook or Twitter, or download the image for further use.
