Double your speed with oustanding screenshots
When working with images, you will often be required to use only parts of the images into your slides. There is a free screenshot tool used that I really find quick and effective, called Monosnap.
Monosnap is a quite advanced free screenshot tool which has many interesting functionalities, some of which are extremely useful to us in our quest to be more effective.
The first thing about this program I really like is that you can activate the screen capture with a shortcut. There are 8 different shortcuts you can set:
- Cropped screenshot
- Cropped shot and upload
- Capture frozen area
- Fullscreen shot
- Fullscreen shot after 10 sec
- Show editor
- Show/hide dropzone
- Take screenshot of a game
The most useful to us are
Cropped shot and upload
This function is very useful to quickly exchange screenshots with team members through chat. It uploads the screenshot online and gives you a ready-to-paste link to the image.
- Activate the shortcut from your keyboard and take a screenshot.
- The screenshot is automatically uploaded online and the link is copied to your clipboard, so you can paste the link wherever you want using CRTL + V.
Capture frozen area
This function enables you to get the screenshot and have it ready to be pasted directly on your slide as an image.
- Take the screenshot
- Edit in the editor, if you like
- click to the image button on the top right part of the window and copy the image to clipboard
- Now just copy and paste your image to PowerPoint
NOTE: If you do not edit the picture with shapes, arrows, or text, you can directly copy and paste it into your PowerPoint.
You can always access the tool admin panel from the windows bar menu at the bottom of your screen
then access the setting menu and from there you can edit your shortcuts as you prefer.
I like to have the two recommended functions on CTRL+3 and CTRL+4 because then I can quickly recall them with my left hand.
