Inside Windows 7 Snipping Tool

Are you a blogger who always do screen shots from the web?
Or let’s say- do you always capture images from your computer screen?
I’m certain that you are, but using the print screen function from your keyboard- and pasting the images to image editors like Paint so you would be able to customize the image. If you have already upgraded your old OS version to Windows 7, you can use another alternative for this task- the Snipping Tool.

Windows 7 Snipping Tool
With Snipping Tool, you can capture a screen shot, or simply a Snip, of any object on your screen, and then annotate, save, or share the image. You can capture different types of snips like Free-form snip (draw a free-form shape around an object), Rectangular Snip (drag the cursor around an object to form a rectangle), Window Snip (select a window such as browser window or dialog box, that you want to capture), and Full-screen Snip (enable you to capture the entire screen).

After you capture a snip, it’s automatically copied to the clipboard and mark-up window where you can annotate, save, or share the snip. If you think this post is kind of boring (LOL…just kidding), you can try it anyway… Just go to the Accessories folder from the Start Menu, and select Snipping Tool. The Snipping Tool window will open that look similar with the screen shot above. Now, you can try capturing images from your screen using this tool.
