Screenshots are the basic need of every blogger. While explaining something, screenshots play the role of a visual aid, as well as confirmation for correct execution of any function that you are trying to explain in your article. For instance, if you are writing an article about performing a task which requires the readers to perform some step by step actions (a tip on how to install Windows 8 on VirtualBox, perhaps), providing the readers with screenshots of each dialog box, and the correct settings to choose in order to configure, make the process a lot easier than if only text were written. Here at AddictiveTips, we take special care in providing our readers with accurate and high quality screenshots within our posts. If you are looking for an easy-to-use screenshot tool that allows you to capture high quality images, check out Free ShareShot. It is an application for Windows that allows you to capture screenshots and edit them to highlight certain portions using conventional marking and annotation tools. It has four capture modes: Capture Region, Capture Last Region, Capture Window and Capture Full Screen, which can be triggered using pre-defined hotkeys.
Other than the regular options, which almost all screenshot taking tools have, Free ShareShot also has the capability to automatically tweak the screenshot for Printing directly after capturing it. When you run the program for the first time, the Settings dialog box pops up. You can change General application settings, like Register Hotkeys, Launch on Startup, Show flashlight and Play camera sounds etc, and Output settings related to Screenshot destination, Preferred output file settings, JPEG settings and Print options.
To capture a screenshot, you can, either use the hotkeys or the options listed in the system tray menu of Free ShareShot. The system tray menu has Capture Region, Capture Last Region, Capture Window, Capture Full Screen, Quick Settings and Settings buttons available.
The Quick Settings menu allows you to instantly change the settings for Screenshot destination (Share screenshot online, Open in image editor, Copy to clipboard, Save to preferred folder, Prompt dialog to save as, and Send to printer), Print Options (Shrink printout to fit paper size, Enlarge printout to fir paper size, Rotate printout to page orientation, Center printout on page), and Effects (Camera Sound & Flashlight).
The built-in screenshot editor lets you Draw Rectangle, Circle, Arrow, Line and Add Textbox to the image, lets you perform basic editing, such as Cut, Copy, Paste and Duplicate selected element, choose line color and thickness, and share the image online. Sharing the image will automatically upload the screenshot on the VeryPDF servers (product developers), and open the image in your default browser.
Free ShareShot is a user friendly application that lets you quickly grab neat and high quality screen captures, edit them and save them to your PC, as well as upload them to the internet for sharing. It works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
