Screen shots made easy

Posted in Tools and Software at Thursday, 13 October 2005 12:31 W. Europe Daylight Time

My workflow of taking screenshots had to be revised: Instead of hitting Print (captures the whole screen) or Alt+Print (which captures the current foreground window), booting Photoshop, cropping the image and saving it I was looking for a nice and handy solution. I found Cropper that Daniel Fisher used during his talk at the .NET Summer Camp 2005 pretty straight-forward.

Cropper Screenshot

Start the tool, select the screen area to capture, double-click and you're done. I especially like that one has quick access to image format and quality via the right-click menu. Also note the size info in the top left corner. Neat.

BTW: This screenshot was made using the old workflow :-)
