Let’s face it, using a computer can be hard, and it can be even harder to explain how to do something on the computer. Techsmith Snagit for Chrome is a free-to-use tool that makes it easy to take and annotate screenshots of webpages. It’s easy to install from the Chrome Web Store. Once it’s installed, it’s easy to use. Just click on the S icon, then choose the type of screenshot. You can drag and select a section of the page, take a picture of the entire page, or even use the Scrolling mode, which will capture the entire webpage, even if it doesn’t fit on a single screen. Once a picture is taken, you can name it and use the easy tools to draw annotations. Once saved, the files are placed in the Techsmith folder in Google Drive. You can alternatively download the snapshot directly or copy a link to it for easy incorporation in a website. In the example below, I take a picture of the AHS website and highlight the link to iParent. To view any of these images in more detail, click on the thumbnail to see the full-size version.
