There might be some instances that you want to capture an image of the webpage quickly. If you are a Google Chrome user then no longer you need a third party tool like Winsnap or PrintScreen Me or any other to capture your webpage. Google has released the extension Screen Capture for Chrome users that can capture visible content of a tab, a region of a web page, or the whole page and save the image as a PNG image.

You can change the size of the box according to your preference and move it to your desired region. After selecting your region, click OK. Now you can edit if you want to and after that click on Save button to save the image to your system.
