Take Webpage Snapshot Using Opera PC Browser and Save It As PNG Image

Opera desktop browser is getting new features and improvements in developer build and beta mode. That means we are going to have interesting features in the stable version of desktop Opera. In fact, stable release is already providing new features. Recently, it comes with option to export Opera bookmarks to PC as HTML file. There are many other features like unit converter,  resume button for interrupted download, etc. Taking webpage snapshot is also a new feature of Opera desktop. Now you can take full webpage screenshot or a specific part and save the snapshot as PNG image.

This new snapshot feature is introduced in Opera 48 version. Before you go ahead,  here are a few points to consider:

  • Webpahe snapshot feature is not available in the latest stable release of Opera (which is Opera 47). This feature is currently available in Opera 48 (beta version).  So, you must have installed Opera 48 to use this feature.
  • You can use Snapshot feature using the Opera sidebar.
  • You can use Opera stable and Opera beta versions separately. So, if you are using stable version of Opera, you don’t need to uninstall it for using this feature. You can install Opera 48 separately and enjoy using this feature.
