Web ClippingEvernote Screen clipping or Screen shots has become my favourite favourite Evernote Feature. The business world has been using screenshots extensively for years though. So as the world becomes more and more suspicious of the guy two cubicles down so the ability to prove what we’ve been up to is more important now than ever. Problem is when I send a screenshot of the project I’m currently working on I very rarely want to send my whole screen. I don’t need the whole world knowing what emails I’ve recieved or what programs I have open.

Before I go on if you’re extra observant you’ll see that all my blog posts are now available for PDF download.

Or having it look like plain text in evernote.

The way it was

Now prior to Evernote gtting a business friendly Screen shot was a multi-step process that just slowed down the process of cranking through the email inbox. Traditionally it would go something like this:

  • hit the Prt-Scr button
  • Ctrl-V in your *image editor
  • Crop your image
  • Save as an image

While the Evernote Pc program is running hitting the print screen key will bring up a little undocked window and some crawling ants to be manipulated. Move the ants around until you’ve selected the area of the screen you want to clip and Hey presto you’re done. You now have a clipped screenshot of only the area of the screen you chose.
