Sharing screenshots with your team is an essential skill that all website owners need. When our customers ask us to make a change to something on their website, a screenshot speeds the process up tons! And if there is a bug or if you are struggling to use a tool, sharing a screenshot with us let’s us see what’s going wrong and why your screen might be different to what we can see.
But how do you take screenshots and annotate them super quickly?
Introducing: snipping tool.
It’s free, and built right into windows.
Add Snipping Tool to your taskbar
Type “Snipper Tool”
Click “Pin to taskbar”
How to save a screenshot on windows
Open the snipping tool
Click “New” in the top right of the tool
Click and drag the area you want to screenshot
You can then click “File > Save As” to save the screenshot OR you can simply “Copy” (CTRL+C) the screenshot and paste it into an email, chat, word doc – whatever you want! Easy.
Annotate your screenshot
You can use the “pen” in the Snipping Tool to annotate your screenshot. Easy and helpful
So next time you want to share a screenshot on windows, use the snipping tool. It’s great.
There are of course plenty of other ways to take a screenshot:
Look for the “PRINT SCREEN” button on your keyboard. It copies a shot of your screen which you can then ‘paste’ into an email or word doc (for example)
On Iphone, you can press the ‘side button’ and the ‘volume up’ button at the same time to take a screenshot, saving it to the camera roll
If you are new to online marketing, words like "platform" and "CMS" can sound like nonsensical jargon. So let's make things simple...
Are you going to be selling products on your website? Will you be taking payments? Will you need a shopping basket and checkout system? If the answer to these questions is "yes" then you'll probably need our Shopify website design packages.
Do you just need a website to advertise and promote your products & services? Are you looking to build a content-based site rather than an online-retail store? Then you will probably need our WordPress CMS website packages.
Don't worry if you are still confused; just get in touch and we'll talk you through it.
