Awesome Screenshot for Chrome Update!

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, loosing 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.
