Although there are various tools and methods you could use for capturing screenshot of a webpage, if it’s done through a browser extension, the process is usually faster and easier.

This article discusses 3 such screen capture utilities for Google Chrome. If you are a chrome user, and need to capture screenshots of webpages often, you’d find these useful.

1. WebPage Screenshot

This is Chrome’s most popular add-on for capturing screenshots. It allows you to capture the entire webpage in a single PNG file. You can also choose to capture only the part of the webpage that is visible on your computer.

The ‘All page screenshot’ is a bit wonky though. It doesn’t let you save a screenshot that’s bigger than 2MB due to a bug in Chrome.

Download and install Webpage Screenshot for Chrome. (UPDATE: The extension is no longer available. Use Full Page Screen Capture extension instead)

2. Picnik Extension For Chrome
