Edit screen­shots in Fire­fox

Web User - - Best New Browser Tools -

Mozilla in­tro­duced a handy screen-cap­ture tool in Fire­fox 56 but it wasn’t par­tic­u­larly so­phis­ti­cated. Ver­sion 59 of the browser sig­nif­i­cantly im­proves the Screen­shots fea­ture by let­ting you edit the im­ages you cap­ture. Take a screen­shot in the usual way, by click­ing the three-dot menu icon in the ad­dress bar and choos­ing ‘ Take a screen­shot’, then click Save to open it on the Fire­fox Screen­shots site ( screen­shots.fire­fox.com). Click the new Edit but­ton to ac­cess var­i­ous op­tions in­clud­ing crop, pen (for writ­ing and draw­ing on the grab) and high­lighter, along with a choice of nine colours. There’s also an Undo but­ton if you make a mis­take. Click Save when you’re done and you can share or down­load your edited screen­shot, or fid­dle around it with some more be­fore the grab ‘ex­pires’ and is deleted.
