OneTab is the de facto solution for saving tab sets. Click the extension button and the whole window is saved to an organized list where you can drag between sets and remove tabs as needed. **Tip:** export OneTab lists as plain text for easy bulk editing and import it again to clean up long lists.

Tab Manager
This one scratches an itch for me. I use Toby and Pinboard to organize tabs, which is way easier if I can just save a whole window, but I hate having my sessions include irrelevant pages, and sorting them all is a pain. With Tab Manager, you can see all of your tabs as a list and manipulate them in myriad ways (close, move, re-order). See also OneTab...

I've mentioned Placeit before. It lets you upload screenshots and frame them in high quality stock photos of any device. Since the last time I've mentioned it, they've added the ability to put screen recordings into devices and save as video, as well as a whole section of t-shirt and poster mockups with models and settings. (It appears to be what [Teespring](https://teespring.com/stores/lab) is using now for the marketing photos they generate for user campaigns.) It's not cheap ($8 for a one-off high-res mockup), but the quality is worth it for anyone serious about marketing.
