How To Take A ScreenShot – When Your Web Designer Needs To See What You’re Seeing

February 16th, 2010

Sometimes clients see things in a certain way in their browsers that I’m unable to see. Often the fastest way to clear up the confusion, is for them to send me a screenshot. Send a screenshot of something on the web is easy to do once you know the steps.

If you have a PC (not a Mac):

1. Press the print screen key (PrtScn). This takes a screenshot and saves it.

2. Open a program that uses images (Word, Powerpoint)

3. Edit and Paste. This pastes the saved screenshot.

4. Save the document and email it.

If you have a Mac (not a PC):

1. Open your “Grab” application.

2. Select “Capture” and the method you’d like to use.

3. Save the image to your desktop (it will be a .tiff) and email it.
