How can I take a screenshot using the "Easy Screenshot" extension?
Simply right-click on a page and choose between the three available options. Either select "Capture Visual Part" which captures the entire visible screen (viewport), or "Capture a Portion of Screen" to select the dimensions of the screenshot first. By selecting the second option, you will see two guidelines to help you select the start position.
Where does "Easy Screenshot" extension store the captured screenshots?
This extension stores all screenshots in the default download directory of your browser. To change the storage directory, you will need to change the default download directory of the browser. Alternatively, you can enable the option to ask for the directory where the image is stored to let you select the destination folder on each capture.
As of version 0.1.9, you can click on the notification bubble to open the download directory.
[Deprecated] Although the extension is installed and I can see the context menu items still nothing happens when I click on the items. What is wrong?
If you have just installed the extension, make sure to refresh the page before using the extension. Easy Screen needs to inject a tiny script to the page for guidelines to appear when you start capturing screen.
Why does the "Screenshot" extension uses PNG format for its screen recordings?
PNG is a raster graphics file format that supports lossless data compression with better quality if a combination of text and image is selected. If you prefer another format, open the captured screenshot with an image viewer and save it into a new format.
Does the quality of the captured image depend on screen resolution?
Yes, the screenshot is capturing of the pixels within the defined image area. So a higher resolution screen like Retina displays will have more pixels, and consequently, you will get a more detailed screenshot.
What happens if a page is bigger than the size of my screen. How does the "Easy Screenshot" extension capture the screenshot from the entire page?
This extension scrolls the page horizontally and vertically until the entire page is covered. These pieces are then merged and form the entire page. Since the extension needs to wait for scrolling to update the page position, it takes a few seconds for the extension to swipe the entire screen. Do not try to scroll the page while this operation is finished.
