Screen capture a.k.a taking screenshots are of those activities that you must be doing day to day. I have been using many tools on my Windows system and mostly stick to Snag it and Windows 7 snipping tool for taking screenshot. Though, as I mentioned in my earlier article (Download Google chrome offline Installer), Chrome is my favorite browser, so I thought of adding one such chrome screen capture addon, which will help me taking screen-shots quickly. Aviary is not the only addon but this is by far one of my favorite extension for Chrome.
Aviary addon for Chrome:
Among the many Google Chrome plugins, one of the most useful plugins is Aviary Screen Capture. This nifty little extension for Google Chrome lets Chrome users take screenshots of any webpage and quickly edit it from within the browser using the web app at aviary.com. Aviary Screen Capture also gives access to other services provided by aviary.com.
After installation of Aviary Screen Capture plugin, an icon is added to the address bar of Google Chrome browser which can then be clicked to access the services provided by Aviary Screen Capture.
Capturing the screen can be done by selecting the Capture Visible Portion of Page. This opens Aviary Image Markup tab with the webpage which is selected in a new tab. Next, a set of tools is made available from which users can select portions of a web page and then edit them with MS paint like features.
One of the features offered by Aviary Screen Capture is the color editor which is a within-browser color editor and color editor can be used to modify images and other multimedia elements.
Aviary also lets crop and resize images, rotate and flip them and also add visual notes like arrows, text and highlights to captured images.
Aviary Screen Capture is a one-in-all image capture and editing tool which can be effectively used to capture and edit all kinds of images and webpages within Google Chrome web browser. Well, if you are looking for a simple and easy to use Chrome screen capture addon, Aviary should be your quick choice.
