Every computer comes with the built-in ability to grab an image of what's on your screen, also called a screenshot. That's great, because so often when we're working or teaching someone how to do something on their computer, a visual reference is what's needed.
Have you ever had to make notes on a screenshot? Or draw arrows or circle certain elements? Pasting your screenshot into a basic graphics program is one option, but it requires quite a few steps and takes a while. And what if what you really need is to make a short tutorial video?
There's a better way to grab screenshots and annotate them, or to make a five-minute video of your screen with annotations and audio narration. And this productivity-increasing screenshot tool is completely free, with versions for Windows and Mac users.
The next time you need to mark up screenshots, or make a video demo of how to do something on the computer, try TinyTake. TinyTake is a small but powerful app that makes taking still or video screenshots and annotating them super simple.
