- On Microsoft Windows you can press
- On OSX press
ctrl+cmd+shift+1to get screen-shoot on clipboard
If you like me need to share your screen-shoots, like:
- Take screen-shoot
- Put it on a shareable URL
Then the free open source Gyazo app for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux may be a good choice.
It simply allows you to drag out an portion of your screen and when you release it immediately upload to your personal screen-shoot online library. A browser window is opened and the URL to the screen-shoot is put on the clipboard.
OSX based workflow with build in app: “Preview”
I have become used on OSX to use a workflow like this:
- Take screen-shoot for clipboard (say
ctrl+cmd+shift+4to be able to save portion of screen)
- Open “Preview” (the build in document viewer of OSX, simply fire up “Spotlight”
cmd+SPACEand type “Preview”+
- Open a new image using
cmd+Nand the screen-shoot from the clipboard will be shown
Now you can do editing of the screen-shoot like add speechbubles, resize and even apply filters. Save it when you are done, like on Dropbox in a public folder, then you can share it from there.
Using Jing – another free screen-shoot util
In this post I will not go into depth with Jing. It is a great tool which for now I use for easy screen-shoot sharing. Go ahead and read more here: Download Jing for Free.
The app is free, but also exists as a premium version where you “Become a Gyazo Ninja”. Read more.
