How to use Nimbus Capture

Nimbus Capture is available on Chrome, Opera and Firefox as a plugin and can be downloaded from here. Getting started is easy, just visit the page you want to capture and click the Nimbus Capture icon (it's a little aqua coloured "N"). From here you can choose how you want to capture the page. Once you've picked your option, a preview will open on a new tab and you can edit or save it from there. It's that easy.
