Tools for sharing screen shotsArticles » Tools for sharing screen shots

Sharing an image of what you are looking at on a website is often not as easy as we'd like. Every operating system (Windows, Mac OSX, etc) has a tool built in for taking screenshots (or screen grabs), but they are usually more than a few clicks away, and it can be hard to remember what they are called.
The good news is that most browsers have add-ons that allow you to do this with one click. (I can't find a good one for Internet Explorer though) Most of these tools also allow you to capture the full web page, the currently visible part, or just a selection.
- Firefox: Screen Grab
- Chrome: Screen Capture
- Internet Explorer: manual approach (let me know if you find a better approach)
Bonus: phones can take screenshots too!
