screenshot_iconThis is a great feature, but only if you do screen captures for things like training material, or IT support to capture the image of the error – or maybe for the legal typist – if you are taking a screen shot of an email that is being used in evidence. It has been available in the past with the use of “Ctrl V” – but now it really is slick.

Under the “Insert/Illustrations” menu there is a new button called “Screenshot”. When you want an image inserted into the document or spreadsheet, simply click the icon and choose the screen you want to capture

screenshot_screen

by selecting the real time graphic – the “Screenshot” will offer all the open applications which are not minimized for selection or click on the “Screen Clipping” and select the area where you want to take a screen shot, stretch it to what ever size is needed and “Bob is President in a neighbouring state”, it pops into your document.
Like this…

screenshot_capture

Once there, the graphic editing features are plentiful and plenty useful. Crop, image styles, remove background (in a previous Step by Step article), artistic effects and picture layouts to mention a few.

This could be used in conjunction with the Accident Sketch software that we reviewed a few weeks back – http://www.accidentsketch.com/ – just get the sketch done and then “screenshot” it into the Word document.
