Aviary screen capture is full of options. It provides you with all the features, that any desktop image capturing and editing utility can have. You can edit the captured image and save it on your system, or upload it on web. The editor has many options that not only include resize, rotate, flip and add visuall graphics but, also allow you to add effects to the captured image. This extension is my personal favourite extension!
