While creating a portfolio page on our local business website, there arises a need of capturing a client’s website screenshot. However, the traditional inbuilt snipping tool that comes with Windows 7/8 system failed to perform the operation. Even, my all time favorite tool screenpresso couldn’t help me either. As a long time Google chrome browser user and admirer, I turned my attention to Chrome web store to look for an extension that can easily capture screen of scrolling Window. To my surprise, there are tons of screen capturing tools available on the Chrome web store that performs the similar operation, however, only Clipular drove my attention.
Clipular is not just another screen capture utility that comes with few features. The developer of Clipular has gone one step ahead and provided more flexibility. There are a slew of features like annotation, effects, filters, stickers, brightness, contrast, saturation and drawing tools. While the extension smartly manages to capture the selected region or even a scrolling window, it saves all the images on your account. Later, you can share your captures with friends and colleagues. Many consider it as a web clipper that can alleviate your problem of bookmarking different URLs. What’s more is that it can even save the URL, title of the pages you’ve captured. Let’s explore the tool more to understand the features in detail.

To start with, you will have to go through official Chrome web store link to download Clipular. There are three different options available namely, scissor, camera, book. The first two options are used to capture web pages while the last option is used to access the clipular clipboard where all the screen captures are stored.
There are also three ways to access enable the extension—right click context menu, the little icon in the extension menu and ALT + C shortcut. Productive people will definitely use the latter option. Use any of the above options select the area with your mouse, drag the region and boom. Your screenshot has been taken in a breeze and is made available on your Clipular account automatically. Unfortunately, there is no information made available regarding the available space.

The right floating + icon will let you select multiple images so you can either add notes or move them to an appropriate folder.
