Capture And Share Website Screenshots From Google Chrome

by Rohit Khurana on November 4, 2010


We need to explain or discuss the topics with our friends and colleagues through internet. And one of the very easy way is to use the screenshots. We have a large number of softwares available for the screenshots. But sometimes we need some additional features after the snapshot is taken. Moreover, using other tools while working online creates disturbance. So, Explain and Send Screenshots is a wonderful google chrome extension. It will allow you to work online without any inconvenience.

Explain and Send Screenshots is a very small tool and will be downloaded very soon. It is directly installed on google chrome and will be present on the top right corner of the browser. It can be used to take the snapshot of the webpage in different ways. The tool with its various options has been shown in the snapshot below.

It shows that you can take the screenshot in three different ways and also upload the image.

  • Grab visible part of this page: To take the screenshot of the region shown in the browser.
  • Grab a selected area: To take the screenshot of desired region only.
  • Grab The entire page: To take the screenshot of the complete webpage. Now, you need not to take the many screenshots of the webpage because the scroller interrupts. It will cover the entire page.
  • Upload Image.

The webpage will be opened in a new tab as shown in the screenshot below.
