While screenshots aren’t that difficult to capture, grabbing the image of an entire website page is another story altogether, since they usually cover more than the size of the screen.
FireShot is a small utility created for the Chrome browser that can capture, edit, organize, export, upload and print web page screenshots. The app has a simple interface, with an intuitive design, that is quite easy to figure out.
As mentioned, the app integrates into the Chrome interface; its icon is placed in the right side of the address bar. The program can capture various types of screenshots, such as the entire page, only the visible area, a selection or the browser window. Additionally, you may choose to capture the entire page and open the editing window.
Also, it’s possible to save the file, to save as PDF, upload, print, copy to Clipboard, email or open in an External Editor.
The app’s photo editor enables you to add shapes and pointers, draw or include images to the screenshot. It’s also possible to add all types of annotations to the picture. When doing this, you may pick the font name, size, color and alignment.
FireShot’s general settings enable you to specify an output directory and a name template for the pictures. The program supports several file formats, such as JPEG, GIF, PNG and BMP.
In order to install this tool, you must open the Extension page in Chrome settings and drag-and-drop the app to the frame.
All in all, FireShot is a nice utility that can come in handy quite often. Inexperienced individuals shouldn’t have any problems in figuring out how to work with it.
