Technology Tip Tuesday

 
I’m linking up with Blog Hoppin for their Tech Tip Tuesday!

I didn’t know if this tip was suppose to be for school/blogging/both….I went with blogging.  If you’ve ever done a tutorial you might have heard of  Screenshot Captor, which lets you take pictures of your screen.

I love this tool and have been using it a lot recently! I’m sure there is any easier way to do this but its FREE and you can crop photos and save as JPEG easy as that.

I haven’t messed with all the effects but if you head to the link above you can see what all you can do! Here is a link to a tutorial I did using the program and below are some sample screenshots:

Hope you find this helpful! Go link up – I need all the tips I can get!
