A Valuable Tool for Our Business

Awesome Screenshot has improved over the years. I am very satisfied with what is offered at the moment.

Pros

I love Awesome Screenshot because I can capture or record almost everything on my screen with ease. There are several annotation tools as well. I record many of my online meetings. It's easy to convert the recordings into an MP4 file. I have the premium version, and so far, I haven't had a time limit on my video recordings. Awesome Screenshots is always adding new features and just added a basic video editing tool with more features to come. This is one of the most valuable tools in my business.

Cons

I have a hard time capturing items in a dropdown box. The screen is captured before the list is shown. When recording a screen, you can hide the record stop button, but you cannot discreetly stop the recording. Awesome has email-only customer service, which can be slow.

Great Features for Great Value

Overall, it is user friendly and has all the features that I need.

Pros

I am able to add this to my browser tools so that I can simply click on the icon and capture any webpage I am on at the time.

Cons

The full-page capture ability is sometimes affected by an iFramed page or if the webpage has a sticky header. It really depends on the website I am on at the time. However, the visible section capture is never affected by this.

Reasons for Choosing Awesome Screenshot

It is easy to use and workflow efficiency is increased with the Browser extension.

Reasons for Switching to Awesome Screenshot

I switched because Snagit does not have a chrome browser extension that I can add to my browser for quick application.

The best way of capturing, annotating and sharing webpages

Awesome Screenshot has become a one-stop solution for me to quickly capture anything on web pages, annotate them as per the requirement, and share it with anyone online whenever required. All in all, its pricing plans are also pretty affordable.

Pros

I love how easily I can capture either the entire or part of the web page, edit and annotate the Screenshot as per my need, share it through a link, or quickly download it on the local folder for future uses.

Cons

Though it also has a video recording feature, I find it quite limited as the recorded videos cannot be annotated or edited like the screenshots. And also, it provides a limited time frame to record with its free plan.

Reasons for Choosing Awesome Screenshot

Awesome Screenshot is quite affordable and easy to use compared to other alternative products available in the market.

Awesome Screenshot is Really Awesome!

Overall, I am so happy and glad that I found Awesome Screenshot. It's completely free and it works really well. I have never encountered any issues.

Pros

This software is totally free to use and it's really handy! You can make a full-page screenshot or just a selected area on the screen. I use this mainly when I want to take a screenshot of a very long website. You can use the selected area option then scroll down to the bottom of a website as you desire, then make annotations as needed! As easy as that. You can't do that on Mac's screenshot feature, you can't scroll down while taking a screenshot. Now they've added a screen recording feature. Honestly, I've not tried this one yet but it sure looks promising.

Cons

The main purpose of the app is for screenshots, and to me, it's really doing well in that area. There's nothing to dislike from this software. It gets the job done.

Taking The Challenge Out of Screenshots

Overall Awesome Screenshot is just what it says it is: awesome. It has excellent options for how to capture the screen and the annotation tools really make your screengrabs pop

Pros

As a teacher, I use screenshots and screen recordings all the time. Awesome Screenshot makes the process super easy. I love the various ways to capture the screen. The annotation tools are handy for a quick note and the new video editor is a nice addition.

Cons

The only issue I have is the paywall. I do not use the features behind the paywall often but sometimes I end up running out of cloud space at inconvenient times. There are workarounds but it is still annoying.

excelente

Es un excelente capturador de página, en especial la opción para capturar página completa

Pros

excelente y super útil, de las extensiones para chrome creo que es la más sencilla y gratuita, cumple su función y mucho más

Cons

Sólo hay algo que es un poco molesto que al hacer click a veces, aunque pocas veces, te envía a la página del software y hay que cerrar y volver a clickear

Not much, really, would be good to have a few more editing tools / pens etc, but can easily use it as it is.

Awesome Screenshot Saves and Awesome Amount of Time

Overall, my experience with Awesome Screenshot is flawless. I've never had any glitches and it's right there at the top of my browser ready to use.

Pros

This free product is so easy to use! There are multiple options for saving screens (visible, full screen, select area, etc), various formats to save your shots, and has editing capabilities to boot.

Cons

The only thing that could use updating is notifications about new features. I just discovered some that I wasn't aware were added.
