Capture screenshots

To capture screenshots, open the desired website or web app. This can be your own site or an inspiring online resource.

Choose between two options to capture screenshots:

  • Visible area: capture the viewport that is currently visible on your screen.
  • Selected area: drag to cover a specific area on the screen

The captured screenshot will be displayed on the extension.

You can take multiple screenshots before importing. Click on the “Capture another” button and pick the desired option.

You can only import a maximum of 10 screenshots at a time. If you reach the maximum, import first before taking more screenshots, or remove the undesired ones.

To remove an undesired screenshot, hover on it and click “Delete”.

Import destination

You need to select the import destination, which is a Visily design board, in order to import the screenshots.

Make sure you have these setups available before importing:

  • Create a Visily account
  • Create at least one board (Note: A board is the design canvas in Visily. You can create a project and then multiple boards inside that project).
  • Open that board in a browser tab

Once you have a Visily board open in the browser, you can select it from the destination dropdown in the browser extension.

In short, to import screenshots, open the Visily board you want to import the screenshots into, then select the board name from the destination dropdown.
