The Best 4 Chrome Apps for Taking Screenshots

April 24, 2015
When it comes to screenshot apps, the Chrome app store is teeming with all kinds of apps but only few do the job quite perfectly. We have been experimenting with a wide variety of these apps and ended up with the short list below. These are the apps we trust the most for doing the job they claim to do. Using these tools, you will be able to easily capture all or part of any web page, add annotations to your screen captures that include shapes, text, comments, blur sensitive parts, and many more. Some of these apps are also integrated with Google Drive. Enjoy

1- Lightshot

This is by far our favourite and the one we use the most for taking screenshots. Lightship lets you grab quick  screenshots of any page and share it with others. Besides  being able to edit your screenshots, you can also save them to your local disk or upload them to the cloud to access them anywhere.

2-Awesome Screenshot

This is another powerful Chrome app with over 2 million users. Since awhile ago, Awesome Screenshot made all of it premium features free for everyone. Some of the things you can do with this app include:capture screenshots of any web page, annotate images with rectangles, circles,arrows, lines and text, blur selected spots on a page or image. Awesome screenshot is integrated with Google Drive meaning you can easily save your screenshots to your Drive.

3- Fireshot

FireShot captures screenshots of Chrome web pages. You can edit and annotate your screenshots. The screenshots are instant and produce no traffic. No 3rd party websites and logins required!
