Top 3 Webpage Snapshot Tools To Boost Your Productivity

For online professionals like freelance bloggers, marketing writers, graphic designers, project managers, and even for regular internet users, a webpage snapshot tool is good to have for all sorts of situations. Whether you are creating a PowerPoint presentation or a tutorial, a reliable snapshot tool always come in handy.

However, you might be wondering about the distinction between a screen capture tool and a webpage snapshot application. The difference is minor, but definitely not insignificant. A screen capture tool takes a picture of your current desktop view and its current size, while the latter takes a full-size image of a website page that you want to save, basically by entering its URL.

If you’ll perform a quick Google search to find the best webpage snapshot tools available, you will overwhelm yourself by the number of results and choices. This specific tool is so useful that many came up with their own versions. Because of that, it is now harder to tell which one is for keeps.

In this article, I’ve summed up 3 of what I think are the best screen capture tools that I’ve tried myself.

#1 Webpage Screen Tool

As the name implies, this webpage snapshot tool offers straightforward functionality. To capture a full page, all you need to do is copy and paste the webpage URL, hit the download button, and follow the wizard. It’s as simple as that.

Aside from its core function, it’s also packed with useful features such as editing, cloud storing and screenshot sharing. It’s recommended for people who want to get full-page screenshots fast.

Webpage Screen Tool allows you to save images in JPG format to your local drive. You make annotations and it only takes a few clicks to download. This application is free and does not require registration. Plus, there’s no download limit or usage time restriction.

#2 WebShots Pro

This is another webpage screen capture app that is equally reliable. WebShots Pro is very similar to Webpage Screen Tool, but what I love about this one is that it offers the user with different resolutions to choose from.

To give it a try, go to the WebShots Pro homepage and type in the URL of the webpage you want to capture in the link box. Always remember to type in ‘WWW’ for it to work.

Perhaps, WebShots Pro’s edge over WebPage Screen Tool is that it shows a short description of the webpage you will capture. It may look unnecessary, but it actually informs the user if the correct webpage is provided.

#3 Thumbalizr

Thumbalizr requires a minimal registration fee to get full-size webpage snapshots, but it is worth a mention. Unlike WebShots Pro and WebPage Screen Tool, it captures the current size of your browser and gives a full image shot as well. You only have to paste your target URL in the link box and hit enter.

What’s more interesting about this app is that registered users can see web snapshots created by others.

However, a free user can only download a thumbnail size, hence the name of the tool. You need to register to be able to download screen captures in various resolutions.
