Quick Start - Sharing a screenshot to Web

  Previous topic Next topic  

Jet Screenshot lets the user share a screen shot in 3 easy steps.


1. Capture the screen


By default, Jet Screenshot loads at Windows startup and sits in the system tray until you want to make a capture. A click on the icon runs the capture mode. The user can capture anything: a full screen, window, object, or a region. Moreover, one can capture popup menus with the shadow and Topmost windows (a Topmost window is the window that appears above all windows).



By default, the program is set to capture a region. When the user clicks the Jet Screenshot icon, the program displays the cross-hairs. Click the left mouse button once to indicate the top-left corner of the region, drag the cross-hairs to select a region and then release the button.




When the button is released, the captured image opens in the Edit mode.



2. Edit the screen shot


Once the image is captured, the user enters the Edit mode. To edit the screenshot, use the tools on the toolbar. If the toolbar is not visible, click the right mouse button and the toolbar will appear. If the toolbar hinders editing, you can either drag it away or hide by clicking the Close button.




Jet Screenshot offers you all the tools to explain ideas or focus the attention of the viewers on specific areas of the image. The user can draw, add text and shapes, as well as change editing settings, like color and opacity. Antialiasing makes your annotations and drawing smooth and nice. However this option can slow down drawing especially on slow computers. If this is the case, you can disable antialiasing. To learn how, read here.

Adding annotations is simple. For example, to add a comment, the user clicks on the Text icon and types in the comment on the image. When the annotation is added, you can drag it to any area on the image with the mouse.




Now the image is ready for sharing.


3. Share the screen


Jet Screenshot allows the user to share the image in a click. You can share in Web, share to FTP, save to file, or copy to clipboard.




On the toolbar, click the Share in Web button. Jet Screenshot will use the default sharing method to upload the image to the image hosting server.



The default sharing method is Share in Web, and the captured image is uploaded to the image hosting server at my.jetScreenshot.com. As an unregistered user, you can use this server in the demo mode only. In this mode, the server stores images for 24 hours and removes them when this period is over. For your convenience, we recommend you to register a FREE account at http://my.jetScreenshot.com (Read: Register on website)



If you cannot upload the screenshot to the server, you can click the Back to Editor button and select another sharing option, or save the screenshot to file. This prevents you from losing the captured image if the sharing method does not work for some reason.


When the upload is over, Jet Screenshot shows the notice "The file has been uploaded" and places the link to the image on the clipboard automatically.





The program allows you to generate three types of link: IM/Chat, Forum, Blog. The user can set the default type of link in the Share in Web settings. Besides, the type of link can be selected in the notice that appears after file upload. Just click IM/Chat, Forum or Blog, depending on where you want to post the link. For example, select Blog, if you want to post to your personal blog.


Once the file is uploaded, you can paste the link to email, ICQ, Skype, blog, forum, Facebook, Twitter - anywhere!




You can share the image with your friends by pasting the link to an email message, Skype chat, blog post, or Twitter.




The best thing in Jet Screenshot is that you can share an image instantly. Just make a few clicks and - voila! Your friend gets the link and can view it immediately.




Enjoy the convenience of INSTANT sharing and CAPTURE, ANNOTATE, SHARE on the fly!
