Pixlr Grabber: A Simple Screenshot Taking Extension for Google Chrome

There are times when you want to capture a part of your computer screen – especially if you are a blogger – and share it with your friends or anyone for that matter. Normally, if you are a new user, you would use the simple print screen button, paste the image in paint and edit the required part. However, this method can work out but it can be time consuming as you have to switch multiple applications to get the screenshot. If you use Google Chrome, you should have a pretty good idea that it comes with handful of extensions that allow users to capture screenshots and edit them. One such extension that helps you tackle this task is known as Pixlr Grabber.

Pixlr Grabber is a very useful extension that allows users to easily capture screenshots right inside Google Chrome. Later, the captured image can be downloaded to your computer or share with friends via imm.io service. If you want, you can directly launch Pixlr Editor and edit the image before saving it on your computer.


Once installed, it will add a new icon in your extensions area. Pixlr Grabber provides users with three capturing modes: capture entire web page, capture selected area and capture visible area. Just select the mode – we choose desired area – and it will show you the rectangle type area which you can expand to capture selected area.


After clicking on the Crop button, it will ask you whether you want to save the image directly to your computer or edit it online using Pixlr Editor. You also have the option to upload the image to imm.io, image hosting service by Pixlr and share it with anyone you want.

I will definitely recommend this extension to anyone who is looking for a simple screenshot capturing utility for Google Chrome.
