We are back with a major Awesome Screenshot update.

  • Updated annotation tools (you can now rearrange annotations on the image after completion)

  • Updated UI (including buttons for saving an image, and overall UI improvements)

  • Updated Extension Menu (removed donate option and added direct account info access)

Due to miscommunications with the Chrome Store, we had to re-post our extension, losing all of our metrics for the past few years. 

Please drop by our Chrome Store page and give us a 5 star review if you've enjoyed using our plugin.

Version: 3.8.3


  • Added a link to "Projects" in our web service in the plugin menu

  • Fixed reported bugs that may have started occuring after last major update

  • Added a refresh option in the save to project menu for Awesome Screenshot projects

    (Due to newly created project not always showing up right away)

Sometimes, you may want to point important text paragraph to your friends or colleagues,  text highlight feature is designed for this scenario. 

If you like this feature or have some other feature requests, please give us a review and leave a comment.


Version: 3.7.11

We are glad to introduce the "Delayed capture" feature to help you capture drop down menu. A countdown timer will appear after you click the "Delayed capture" option. Then, you can take the screenshot of the menu by mousing over/clicking menu before it times out.



BTW, we are sorry for the bug in previous version. We planed to make some money to support the development by adding a price comparison feature. The feature was designed as opt-in, but it turned to be opt-out because of the bug. This feature was already removed completely. So, don't worry about it.

Version: 3.7.6
