Firefox Screenshots, the built-in screenshot tool in Firefox that works in Private browsing mode in download-only mode and lets you copy screenshot to clipboard, has got the annotations feature. Yes! You can now able to edit, highlight and crop shots captured with Screenshots in Mozilla’s my shots page.
The annotations feature in Screenshots comes with freehand drawing and a highlighter. After editing, you can re-crop the shot again. The shot, cropped this way will replace the original shot. Do note the change has happened on the screenshots website’s side, but not in the Firefox browser.
Edit, Highlight and Crop shots in Firefox with Screenshots
Before start using these features, if you’re new to Firefox I suggest you to add ‘Take Screenshot’ item from Page Actions Menu to the address bar.
So lets get started. Click on the screenshot icon in the address bar, select either full page or visible area option or access previous shots by clicking on ‘My shot’s. Do remember, you can able to use the new features on previous shots or a new shot after saving it. After saving a shot, you’ll be taken to my shots page, where you’ll be offered delete, edit and Share buttons on the top right of the page.
To edit a shot, click on pen button, and draw on shot and highlight the area or portion of shot which you desire. Color picker is available to choose color for drawing and highlighting.
