Today I had to perform a series of screenshots of multiple websites that would be used to create an online identity portfolio for one of my customers. Before launching Photoshop, which I often used to perform such kind of tasks with moderate success, I tried to look for a tool that could do it even better: luckily enough I stumbled upon qSnap, a brilliant Chrome extension developed by QASymphony, which does just that in a much better way!
Here’s a quick list of its features:
- Capture Single or Multiple Webpages
- With a simple click “snap” a shot of a webpage
- Continue to click if you have multiple webpages to capture
- qSnap stores snapshots to your tray for editing
- Edit Images
- Edit your snapshots with the built-in annotation tools
- Create a rich digital dialogue through your notes
- Share/Save Your Snapshots
- Save your snapshots locally
- Store your snapshots on our free hosting service (requires a free account on the qsnapnet.com website)
- Share a link to your snaps to Twitter, Facebook, G+
- Email your snapshots or links
Personally I didn’t need anything more than being able to perform a full-page snapshot of some rather long web sites, so I can’t say I used the software to its full extent… However, I managed to pull off what I needed to do in a blink of an eye! The software will automatically scroll-down and scroll-up the page to perform its captures and will flawlessly do that in a matter of seconds: the screenshots are then stored in memory and organized into a sort of media library, where you can discard, crop/edit, save or share each one of them.
One of the biggest advantage of qSnap is the cross-browser compatibility: like I said – being an eager Chrome user – I installed it as a Chrome extension, but it’s also available under Firefox, Opera, Safari and even Internet Explorer.
Here’s a sample screenshot I made with qSnap: looks pretty good, isn’t it?
