Probably you need to take a web page screenshot. You can do that easily on Chrome (Chromium) and Firefox by an extension named Awesome Screenshot. You can take the whole or part of page. You can annotate it with line or text and color after taking. I will show you how to install and use it.


  1. Go to Firefox Add-ons page (about:addons). 
  2. Search for "awesome screenshot".
  3. Install it. 
  4. You get a camera lens icon on your toolbar. That is Awesome Screenshot. 


  1. Visit this official page or search awesome screenshot chrome in Google. 
  2. Install it. 
  3. You get same camera lens icon on your toolbar.

Taking A Whole Page

You can do these methods both in Chrome and Firefox.

  1. For example, you want to take page. 
  2. Visit that page. 
  3. Click on the lens icon > Capture Entire page.
  4. A new tab will be opened. In this tab, you may edit / annotate the screenshot. Then click Done button. 
  5. The page appearance will be changed, then click Save button. Save the screenshot in your favorite folder. 

Taking A Part of Page

Same with above but select Capture Selected Area.

Editing Screenshot

You may draw straight lines, rectangles, ovals, blur some contents, and crop the image. If you are not satisfied with the result, you may save and edit it on GIMP.
