Google Chrome Extensions seems to be catering to every single need you can possibly concoct for yourself while you are browsing through sites. Previously I wrote about the Chrome extensions for Facebook lovers, today though it is a new tool that I am profusely using – Awesome Screenshot.
Awesome Screenshot is a one stop shop for taking screen-shots and editing them, and it is conveniently crouching in your Chrome Browser. It’s a must have extension, especially if you are a blogger like me.
How it works:
- Install the Awesome Screen-shot extension to your Chrome browser.
- When you want to take a screen-shot of a particular page or a part of the page, click on the ‘Awesome screen-shot’ icon on your browser.
- I chose to ‘Capture Selected Area’ – ‘Capture’.
- It also has a handy ‘Blur’ tool. 🙂
Here is a video to give you a quick guide of this tool:
I like “Awesome Screenshot” as it is quick, has all the tools and is always on your browser. Have you tried Awesome Screenshot? Let me know if you think it keeps up with its name. Do leave your comments below.

chrome is going better and better buy developing more extensions but still unable to beat mozilla in browser war??
Good point Vivek. Looks like Google is really trying to maintain its monopoly. Though I still think FF loyalists won’t budge from it.
Firefox extension support + SEO webmaster support are much better than chrome…
I agree but that’s because I use FF over chrome. I guess each of the browser extensions try to enhance usability for their separate markets!
Can you capture images which have intellectual property rights on them ?
Since its a ‘screenshot’ tool, IPR issues wont pop up while you may use the tool. Though it is advisable that when you use images which are subject to copyright, you give credit to the source.
