We are looking at improving the functionality of PrintScreen.Me by providing the tools for Linux and Mac platforms as well as provide an easier linking process to Facebook, Twitter and Picasa.
We have made a few change to screen capture software based on feedback we have received.
Firstly, sending an image to Twitter and Picasa now includes a text box to include a message with the image. This means that PrintScreen.Me capture software is now a Twitter client. A dialog box will appear automatically after you select Twitter or Picasa from the send list.
Secondly, we have made it configurable to open the utility with the Print Screen key. If you do turn it off, you can activate a screen capture by double clicking on the icon next to the clock or right mouse clicking and selecting open.
Download PrintScreen.Me capture software here for the latest version and if you have already installed the capture software then it will automatically upgrade. Further changes are in development but let us know what you want at http://forum.printscreen.me.
Taking a screenshot with PrintScreen.Me is very easy. Once the capture software is installed, just press the Print Screen key on your keyboard and a tool-bar will appear.
The screen will shade out some areas leaving the active window shown, but you can change the selection by using the selection tool.
Use the drawing tools to mark up and annotate your capture. Once you have finished you can save, print or email the image. Alternatively you can send it to Twitter, Facebook, Picasa, Flickr or our image storage service at http://printscreen.me.
One advantage of PrintScreen.Me is that it does not put the image in a separate window, it is just an overlay of what is on your desktop. We find that this “in context style” to be very easy to use.
We have spent a lot of time behind the scenes improving PrintScreenMe and our other products but also decided that we need to refresh the look and change some of the structure. PrintScreenMe now has its own blog and forum. Please give us your feedback and issues in the forum at http://forum.printscreen.me and the latest news will be posted here on the blog at http://blog.printscreen.me.
