Software Spotlight: Greenshot
By Matt, IT Superhero
Sometimes, there’s something on your screen that you just really want to just grab and use. Maybe it’s a picture or part of a website? Maybe it’s that annoying error message that you need to show your IT company? Well, put your camera phone down, because there’s a better way.
Greenshot is the best software around for what we call Screen Capture – taking exactly what you can see on your screen (or part of it) and either save or share it quickly and easily. Within three clicks, you can effectively take a photo of part of your screen and copy it straight into your email or document. Greenshot also has a neat little editor, where you can add arrows, boxes, text, or even blur out sensitive information with simple controls.
In our office, Greenshot lets us quickly share information beyond just text between our staff, it lets us document issues we see in a just few clicks, and provide visual aids for clients, all in a few seconds. Best of all, it’s completely free and won’t slow your computer down at all. If you think Greenshot might help you and your staff, we can quickly deploy it to any or all of your systems via our awesome software deployment tools. Talk to our team about it or check it out here!
