Windows 7: Firefox has Screenshots

Firefox has Screenshots

Quote:
A “screenshot” is created when you capture what’s on your computer screen, so you can save it as a reference, put it in a document, or send it as an image file for others to see exactly what you see.



And when it comes to taking screenshots that are fast and easy, the new Firefox has you covered with Firefox Screenshots, a feature that’s already in your Firefox browser toolbar ready to use. (A feature that Chrome doesn’t have built in. Just sayin’.)

Why Use Screenshots?

Sometimes you want to repost something from Facebook to Pinterest, or vice versa. Sometimes you want to pause a video or animation and grab an image at just the right moment. And sometimes you want to share only the most important part of a web page, rather than forwarding a link to the entire thing.

To do those things better, Firefox Screenshots includes new features like “Copy to Clipboard,” where you can paste images into a document without having to save to your desktop first.

Screenshots also supports Private Browsing Mode, so you don’t have to save to the cloud, where there could be an online record of what you’ve captured. When you exit Private Browsing, Firefox automatically deletes your downloads from that session, which means you don’t have to clean up screenshots on your computer after you’ve captured and sent them.

Screenshots is included automatically in the new Firefox, so give it a try. Just click and drag to select the area you want. Or hover and click, and Screenshots will select the area for you. You’ll never go back to the old ways of dragging and dropping images, trying to “print” your browser window, or taking a photo of your computer screen and then emailing it with your phone.

Screenshots. It’s exactly what you need to share exactly what you’re seeing on-screen. Check it out today.

Whoopee! They're 25 years too late. I already have FoxArc, and before that, Snagit.

Agreed.

As most of you know I'm not a big fan of W10, but the auto-save screenshot function is handy ("Win key + Prt Scn").

I didn't note this feature until a few days back, when I right clicked - it popped up take screenshot, I assumed I may have opened any other software for a second to realize it was indeed FF

interesting but honestly I don't find a necessity for a complete screenshot though. Personally, I like to take screenshots manually edit the unnecessary bits in the Paint & save/post it else where.

I generally use partial screenshots, and FoxArc (not related to Firefox) always gives me that choice, then makes it into a file for me to name. It's a free program.

The W10 auto-save screenshot function is handy for sequences (like using software wizards).
I can take a screenshot of each step and once I've completed the wizard, I can start GIMP and do the editing.

For single screenshots (on W7) I take the screenshot, paste it into Paint, maybe do a rough crop and then save it.
Later I'll load GIMP to finish the image.

I'm a big Firefox fan and didn't even notice the Screenshot option. Thanks for pointing this out, Brink.

Windows 7 Starter doesn't come with the Snipping Tool and SnagIt costs $$$.

Anyone using a Real Computer has a "Print Scrn" key. It's been that way long before Firefox or Windows 10 was even an idea in some programmers dreams.
It takes just one tap on the 'Print Scrn' key to send the entire screen to the Windows Clipboard. Then you can paste that image into any one of several Graphics programs. Personally I use the one given to me by
my Software Guru, years ago. It's called "Photo Filtre" (it's French) and it's FREE.
I have to call it "Photo Shop, Lite", but it's so much simpler to use than Photo Shop, for me it's a NO-Brainer. To make using it even simpler, I put a shortcut to it in the Quick Launch Toolbar (Taskbar).

Not every day, but at least two or three times a week, there is something on my screen (desktop) that I want to capture and save. I suppose for some, the Screen Capture feature in Firefox is handy, but what if you're not in Firefox....but maybe in I.E. or some other program, game, etc.
Or maybe you just put the SD card from your camera in the SD slot on your PC. If I click on any picture, it comes up in Photo Filtre, where I can crop it, resize it, add contrast if needed, even add text to it and then save it all very simply.
Oh yes, I've tried every other photo editor mentioned here, and as a PC guy, I just find Photo Filtre simpler, powerful and very easy to use. I've shared it with many of my customers who also take digital photos, and they too love it. Did I mention,,,,, it's 100% FREE, with no nag boxes to buy, upgrade, etc.

Just a thought,
Cheers Mates!
