So I typically never had much of a problem just using print screen, leaving a blank bitmap image on my desktop and opening paint to paste something I’m looking to capture into paint. I’d then crop the image and adjust it as needed.
I was watching a training a couple weeks ago and they talked about a tool called Jing that allows you to capture screen images. This is a free tool that you can use to immediately capture images and even upload on screencast.com for easy image sharing.
Some other cool features:
- Video Capture based on a selected area with audio support
- Photo capture with Screenshare.com uploading
- Ability to headline and use arrows with images
- Easy to use and capture images fast
