Here’s how you can take partial selective screenshots without rooting your device

Screenshot only what you need

Some data researchers report, ‘30% of graphics (images) shared on the internet is a screenshot of something already shared’. (Ah-ha, we are not sure of that data researcher.) Whether it’s of chat messages, home screen, quotes, Instagram, or Facebook we all love taking screenshots and sharing them. When you take a screenshot from your device the whole display will be snapped but what if you want to screenshot only the particular selected portion of your device? Oh, you might suggest taking a screenshot, crop it later but that’s extra muscular work. How about taking a screenshot of a particular portion minus the hassle of cropping later?

Well, because we have listed some powerful apps that do exactly what we talked about. The best thing, you don’t even need to root your device. Just install any of these below-mentioned apps and you are good to go.

  • Screenshot Crop and Share
