However, the same procedure isn’t suitable to make screenshot of an entire web page. So today, we’re gonna learn how to capture the image of an entire web page with more perfection using Screen Capture (by Google) extension. It’s simple yet more brilliant as Snagit Screen Capture Tool.
How to Capture an Entire Web Page Screenshot using Google Screen Capture?
Step #1: Install the Google Chrome extension Screen Capture (by Google) from Chrome Web Store. On the extension in the Chrome Web Store, click the “+ ADD TO CHROME” and confirm installation of the extension by clicking “Add” in the popup window that appears on the screen. See the image provided below if you still in doubt.
Just after this process, you’ll be able to see a popup screen shows the message “Screen Capture (by Google) has been added to Chrome” at top right side, means the extension is ready to use.
Step: #2: Go to the page you want to make a screenshot and click the extension icon that was added to Google Chrome. Then choose “Capture Whole Page” to capture the entire web page or just use the shortcut Ctrl + Alt + H; (you know, I’m a huge fan of Apple products. So I’m gonna try this extension in Apple.com).
Step #3: After clicking on the “Capture Whole Page” will open a new tab in your browser containing the page screenshot ever captured and a small menu that allows you to save or share the screenshot and display other editing options such as highlight, text, lines, square etc. Now slightly click Save button if you are satisfied with your result.
Remember, if you wanna share your screenshot via Picasa Web, Facebook, Sina Microblog & Imgur will be able to do by clicking Share button before saving your image. Also don’t forget to give a name to your screenshot even it’s a decent name by default.
So I Just used TinyPic, free image hosting service to host my screenshot. Just click here to go to the screenshot I’ve captured with this extension and click on the image to see it in a normal view whether you’re a Chrome or Firefox user.
Update: By default, screenshots are saved in .PNG format. If you want to save your screenshot format .JPEG (Screenshot Quality Settings), simply click on the extension icon in the toolbar of Google Chrome and choose “Options”. Along with this, a tab’ll open where you can’t only set the format that the image will be saved, but also the default destination folder and shortcut keys to be used.
