Video: Working with screenshots

If you want to grab images off your computer screen to use in your presentation, you no longer have to turn to Print Screen or other third party solutions. PowerPoint now has the ability to capture Screenshots and paste them into your slide immediately. There are two ways to do this. If you want to capture all the contents in one window, first set it up so it features what you want to see. In my Web browser, I have gone to samoca-art.com. I will adjust the scrolling so that it features the content that I want to see in my screenshot, and then I will return back to my PowerPoint presentation, and I am going to go down to Slide 11.

Working with screenshots

If you want to grab images off your computer screen to use in your presentation, you no longer have to turn to Print Screen or other third party solutions. PowerPoint now has the ability to capture Screenshots and paste them into your slide immediately. There are two ways to do this. If you want to capture all the contents in one window, first set it up so it features what you want to see. In my Web browser, I have gone to samoca-art.com. I will adjust the scrolling so that it features the content that I want to see in my screenshot, and then I will return back to my PowerPoint presentation, and I am going to go down to Slide 11.

Now, go to the Insert tab and click on the Screenshot button. There are two ways to use this; the first will show you all the available windows you have open. Now if you are one of those people who have 12 windows open at once, you will see all 12 of them here, by clicking on our samoca-art website. I will then resize the image, so it fits on the slide. Maybe you just want part of the window, because here I can see my browser controls, so let's delete this image and try it again. Go back to the browser and again make sure that what you want to see is showing. I will go back to the Insert tab and down to Screenshot.

This time, I am going to choose Screen Clipping. PowerPoint will disappear, show me the window directly behind it, notice that the window goes white and I have a crosshair. I will click and drag across the section of the window that I want to see. When I have exactly what I want, I will let go and that part of the image will be inserted into my Presentation. I will go ahead make it smaller, and move it into place. While I am at it I will give it a style, too. This technique works great for creating images on the fly, instead of having to use picture editing software for cropping and resizing. The ability to capture what you see on your screen also makes it a perfect tool for creating training materials for your staff.
