Recommendation: SnapIt Screen Capture - a great new tool for bloggers!

As regular bloggers dedicated to bringing our followers the latest news, fashion, opinions and product desires, uploading images (whether they be our own, or sourced from other websites) comes with the territory. How else can we display our interests, interiors, new wardrobes or detailed reviews?

Although by now copying, pasting, cropping and uploading an image is like second nature to us, does the long process ever seem tiresome to you? Don’t you just wish that what you see on the screen could magically appear on your blog, homework or office report without traipsing through paint, an image editor or pasting into word documents?

Well Digeus software have introduced a new program called SnapIt Screen Capture 3.7.11815 which enables you to capture what you see on screen, and save or copy and paste it straight into wherever it is you would like it to go! It literally captures anything from your computer screen by taking a ‘snapshot’ with just one click! Ultimately this cuts out the ‘Ptr Sc’ into paint process and cropping the image to look how you want to, which is not only a time saver but is so much more convenient!

Once installed and loaded you simply press ‘Prt Sc’ on your keyboard when you see something you like, this will cause the small camera logo in the system tray to flash. Your cursor then becomes a dragger which you use to highlight the area you would like to capture. Let go and hey presto! Your selection has automatically been copied. You can save it too if you like by right clicking on the camera icon and selecting ‘Save as’. Then proceed to your chosen new destination for the image and paste (‘Ctrl’ and ‘V’). Easy peasy!

This tool is great for designers, office workers, business people, analysts, technical writers who have to describe interfaces, menus, and buttons, and of course, bloggers! You can even capture moving images!

So next time there’s a Topshop coat you want to show your followers or a new MAC lipstick, just press one button, drag and click! What could be easier? Well only pressing one button of course but we can’t have it all!

  1. Or if you use a Mac you can just do Cmd + Shift + 4 and it lets you capture a section on your screen. They should have this on PCs too, makes life a bit easier!

  2. Ooh that's a useful tip thank you, I don't have a mac so the SnapIt program really comes in handy! :)

  3. That software sounds so promising and useful in this era of technology! It has always been a pain in the neck each time I need to capture something and it could take sometime, I don't like waiting! Definitely will try it out! Thanks for sharing the information!

    Have a fabulous one! (:
