How to Take a Screenshot Easily


When we communicate about changes to a website, it’s usually easier to send an annotated image of the screen than attempting to describe “the headline above that one image on the second blog post…” Taking a screenshot is so easy with Awesome Screenshot. You just click a button and it snaps a picture of your screen. You are then given the option to crop your screenshot, add a box, arrow, or circle to call attention to an area, and use the text tool to jot a note. You can then save the image to your desktop to email or instant message. It also allows you to quickly save it online so all you need to do is send a url.
