Once the user has taken the screenshots, he/she can crop the image, draw something on it and add text if required. After the screenshot is captured. The user will automatically get three buttons at the bottom of the screen – Crop & Text & Draw. All actions also have an Undo & Redo button which means users can change something they have done. After all the changes have been done, click on the Next button on the top right. The browser gives you an option to share this image or save it on your smartphone.
