Awesome Screenshot: Capture and Annotate is a free extension for Google Chrome that adds a screen capture utility with a small built-in graphics app that lets you edit, annotate, and share captured images quickly and easily via a pop-up toolbar. Instead of opening two or three tools just to save a screen image, doctor it up, and e-mail it to your grateful friends, Awesome Screenshot can do the job in a few clicks.

Chrome extensions usually install virtually instantaneously, and Awesome Screenshot is no exception. Clicking the extension's icon called up a small dialog letting us save the entire page, the visible portion, or a selected area, though we quickly learned that we couldn't save selected areas of secure Web pages. Right-clicking the icon accesses the extension's properties, including a set of clear instructions on its Chrome page and the ability to set keyboard shortcuts for the tool's three capture functions. The real fun starts when you capture an image, which opens a toolbar at the top of the main window just below Chrome's toolbar. If you've used Photoshop or a digital snapshot editor, you'll recognize the crop, blur, text, and color picker tools as well as tools for adding rectangles, ellipses, lines, free lines, and arrows directly to the captured image. There's even an Undo button, and a Done button to save annotated images. We had a blast capturing and editing images and entire Web pages on the fly, but that's just the beginning; clicking Done displayed our final image with the option to save it locally or online, temporarily or permanently, at the publisher's site. The tool also lets you save captured images locally and upload them later to a sharing site. We didn't try the online storage and sharing option but like the idea, or at least the option.

With Awesome Screenshot: Capture and Annotate, your friends will never have to miss another hilariously doctored screen image because you didn't have the time or patience to open three different tools to save, edit, annotate and then save it again. Don't worry; Awesome Screenshot has plenty of productive uses, too, such as illustrating reports. We recommend it for both work and play.

"Useful Product"

October 17, 2014  |  By Flame224

 |  Version: Awesome Screenshot 3.6

Pros

Attaches to browser; always available
Allows annotation
Can be cropped
Can be stored in cloud or saved locally.

Cons

The CNet description describes it as an add-on for Google Chrome but fails to mention that there are versions for several other browsers. I might have gone right by it if I hadn't been using it for a year on a borrowed laptop attached to Firefox.

Summary

I used to use another program that I had to open to access, which had fewer useful functions. Since using this add-on, I don't want to use any other screen capture.

"Beware of what comes with this extension"

June 08, 2012  |  By zaphod9977

 |  Version: Awesome Screenshot 3.3.5

Pros

useful extension

Cons

When you are looking at items for sale, if you hover over an item, then a small "see similar" item appears, with a scroll bar of similar items. This is a very annoying "feature" that is hidden in the extension, and it was very hard to discover that Awesome Screenshot was causing the problem. Apparently the cnet reviewers did not notice this feature. I did not either for a long time.

Summary

They sold you out and then have the chutzpa to ask for a donation!
