Nimbus Screenshot and Screencast is a browser extension for Google Chrome and a plugin for Firefox that does, as the name says, captures screenshots and records screencasts. It is also available as an Android and a Windows PC desktop app.
Nimbus is packed with features, including:
- Full page capture,
- Fragment capture,
- Resizing and cropping,
- Rectangular, circular and elongated circle annotation,
- Text annotations,
- Color, font, font size editing,
- Speech bubble or dialogue boxes,
- Blur tool to hide sensitive information,
- Color fill and transparency editing.
The most useful feature by far, though, is the ability to record quick screencasts. This is extremely useful if you collaborate on projects a good deal or need to quickly explain something.
Nimbus’ screencasts are not high impact productions and the audio leaves much to be desired. But for easily creating a screencast without the need for Hollywood production values, it’s a great tool.
Here’s a demonstration video that will give you an idea of what it can do.
