About this Add-on
Snapper allows users to designate an area of a web page for a focused snapshot, cutting out the additional work needed for cropping unecessary information. And starting with version 2.1, Snapper can also be used to capture a screenshot of an entire webpage, the visible portion of a webpage, or even a specific frame on a webpage.
== DEPENDENCIES ==
Snapper versions 1.5 and later have no external dependencies.
Previous versions of Snapper (1.4.1 and earlier) are dependent on the Java runtime. (All the more reason to upgrade to 1.5.)
== HOW TO USE: ==
(1) Navigate to any web page
(2) Activate Snapper by clicking on the red snapper icon in the status bar
(3) Use the mouse to designate an area of the page to be snapped (click-and-drag)
(4) After making a selection, a dialog box will prompt for a location to save the snapped image.
As of version 1.4, Snapper supports copying snapped images to the clipboard. This feature may be controlled by bringing up a context menu from the Snapper icon (i.e., right-click), and selecting "Options..."
As of version 1.5, Snapper supports saving snapped images in PNG and JPG formats. (Previously, snapped images could only be saved in PNG format.)
