How to instantly clip text and images from web pages in Chrome [Tip]

You can log in by selecting the My Clips option, pressing the Login button and then clicking Connect w/ Google.


Now open a website page to snip a clip from. Press the Clipular button and select Scissors from the pop-up window. That will open the Scissors tool shown in the shot below.


To snip something from the page, hold the left mouse button and drag the white rectangle to expand its area. Letting go of the mouse button will then snip the website content within the white rectangle to your Clipular clipboard.


Now select the My Clips option to open the clipboard shown below. It includes your website clips captured with the Scissors tool. Hover the cursor over a clip and click the mouse to expand it.


Then you can select an annotate option to open additional editing options as below. Add notes to the clips by selecting the Text option. Press the Draw button to add some paint brushing to your clips. Pressing the Stickers button adds extra clip art to the clippings.
