What is Screen Capture?

"Screen Capture" is a Chrome extension maintained by Adrià Vilanova Martínez. It empowers users to capture the whole web page or a specific region as a PNG image. The screenshot can be edited and saved later. Features for sharing screenshots on social media and using keyboard shortcuts for taking screenshots have been removed, but future revisions might bring the latter back. All extension-related issues have now been fixed.

"Screen Capture" is a fork maintained by Adrià Vilanova Martínez (aka @avm99963) of the original open source extension "Screen Capture (by Google)".

NOTE: All the issues the extension had in the past have been fixed in the newest version. Now everything should work correctly.

It allows to perform screenshots of the visible part of the page, a specific region or the entire page. Afterward, it also allows to edit the picture and save it.

Unfortunately, the following features have been removed because of several reasons:

  • The feature to share screenshots via social networks has been removed (because it stopped working). I don't have plans to bring this back.
  • The feature to use keyboard shortcuts to take screenshots (because it was implemented in a way which is no longer permitted in the Chrome Web Store). I have plans to bring this back in the future.

If you want to work on any of these issues, please ping me and submit the updated code in one of the following places:
