Our favorite (well, mine at least) productivity tool got an upgrade today. Rather than just having an image of your entire screen or the active window, you can now have a totally customized ScreenSnap to share with others.
See this example of the functionality as I am typing this blog post: https://url.odesk.com/rr3vk
Details from the “What’s New” page:
We have added new drawing capabilities to the ScreenSnap feature (see our 9/21 What’s New listing for the initial announcement).
To recap, you can take quick screen shots of either your entire screen or just the active window using Ctrl-Alt-S (full Screen) or Ctrl-Alt-A (Active window).
After entering either key sequence, a window will pop up giving you the option to add a title and description to the ScreenSnap. At the bottom of the window are three buttons: Draw, Save and Discard. When you choose the Draw button, you are presented with the ScreenSnap image which you can annotate with standard drawing tools:
- Initially, you will be drawing a free-form 4-pixel wide red line
- Click the RIGHT mouse button to bring up a menu you can use to:
- Change the color
- Change the pen width
- Select line, rectangle or ellipse
- Enter text
- Crop the picture
- Reset to no drawing
Also, at any time you can press F1 on your keyboard to bring up a Help screen with a short description and Hot keys.
