Somehow I never figured out how to get decent screenshots from my computer. It frustrated me as I really wanted to use those in tutorials on my webpages and blogs.
Then I found Awesome Screenshots and downloaded it for free. It resides on my Firefox toolbar or shows up as an option when I left-click my mouse.
What’s so awesome about Awesome Screenshots? The example above is one I used on my Finding Your Civil War Ancestor blog. It’s a screenshot of the U.S. Census from 1850.
I love being able to crop from a website, circle or box things I want to feature, then add text and arrows. It makes it very clear to your reader and looks so professional.
Did I mention that it’s FREE? You can make a donation at the site and I just might do that, as it is a tremendous tool for any blogger or online content writer or just anyone who uses the Internet.
