Screen capture tips

Sometimes you want to capture your screen and share it with someone. Screen capture part is easy. (Print Screen or Shift-Print screen in Windows, or  Cmd-Ctrl-Shift-4 on Mac) but how about sharing or saving? There are some great Chrome plug-ins out there such as Awesome Screenshot but my Chrome plug-ins have tendency to go out of sync from my Chrome version and I end-up deleting the extension.

Easiest and most convenient way I found so far for quick screenshot sharing is Gmail. Simply capture your screen using one of the above methods.

1. Compose new message in Gmail
2. Switch to Rich Formatting and Paste the screenshot
3. Put some meaningful keyphrases to find it easily and send it to yourself or someone you are sharing it with.
