Awesome screenshot : Best chrome and Mozilla plugin for screenshot

Which application do you use for the screenshot? I was using the print screen button to take a screenshot of any windows. Later I paste it in the paint and update it according to need, but you will not get high-quality images.

If you are writing tutorials on your blog, then you should add the screenshot. Visual tutorials are more effective than text. Readers also expect the tutorials with images to make it more understandable.

When I started blogging my blog was hosted on Blogger. That time I didn’t get any good app for the screenshot. I used to take a snapshot using the print screen button and edit it with Windows paint. I was not satisfied with that method because I didn’t get any HD screenshot with paint.

Yesterday I saw the Awesome screenshot plugin and tried it on my blog. It seems right the first time because I am getting basic features(better than paint) with it. When I decided to write about this plugin/app. Here I have shared the little knowledge about this plugin. I will try to update this article with the latest features.
