Taking Screenshots Made Easy


If you’re like me and tend to take screenshots, you already know how hard is to take a good screenshot which covers the whole screen and doesn’t make it hard for yourself. Thankfully, Windows 7 has a built-in Screen Capture utility, which I LOVE.

It’s called Snipping Tool and it lets you take screenshots and highlight some parts and even save them in whatever format you like. But it doesn’t let you crop or edit out the sections. For that you have to use an editor. But it does get the job done.

The second option is to use Microsoft Paint, you just press Print Screen and then paste the image in a new document. But you still have to crop the sections and adjust things.

Now, you can use other software for doing the same thing but what happens when you need to take a screenshot of scrolling document, I mean you need to take screenshot of a document which consists of 4 pages but you can’t view them separately. I faced that problem many times and finally I found a solution.

Duck Capture, it lets you take multiple screenshots in one go and combine them into a single screenshot, in other words now you can take scrolling sceenshots. The software is free and it’s light as well.

    Vista’s had Snipping Tool for a while. I’ve been using it for 2 years and love it, too! :)

    I honestly have never used it, I might have to check it out. I usually use my MacBook Pro for screen shots.

    Yeah, I’m on a PC, and there was never a good way to grab a screenshot until Vista, so I was psyched. :)

    I just wish Snipping tool had more edit features but still I am not complaining :)

    Well, I used many different tools but Snipping tool just works, although some editing features won’t hurt :)
