Reflection: Online Resources Meeting the Mistress of Sonnet 130 - Section 4: Second Read: Craft and Structure


I just learned about a spiffy tool (thanks, Ernie!)  that you can use to capture a screenshot and then annotate it.  I typically use the screenshot button on my computer (PrntScr), and then have to crop the picture to get just what I want. Then I've been importing it into Skitch or Paint or whatever to do my annotations. 

With Faststone Capture, you can crop just the part that you want and then annotate it.  It gives you the cool features like raised boxes. 

Let me repeat that--you can crop just the part you want.  And then annotate it.  I cannot tell you how exciting this is. 

Did I mention the raised boxes? 

You can add arrows, lines, text, change the color of the text, add a caption, and that's just what I've found in the thirty minutes I was playing with it.  It's free, too! 

Here's the link to download it.   Scroll down the page and click the link that says FastStone Capture 5.3 (1.14 MB).  That's the one you open.  You'll have to unzip the file, and then create a shortcut so it'll appear on your desktop.   Once you click that link, it opens up a tiny toolbar thing.  I tried to get a screenshot of that, but ironically, I couldn't.  It's really tiny toolbar and I missed it the first trillion times I looked for it.  I'm willing to make those mistakes, though, to make your life easier.  Go ahead, say thank you.
