1. Select function
Hover your mouse pointer over the magic eye and select "Scan screen" (1).
2. What would you like to capture?
Next, point your mouse to the window/area you wish to capture. Ashampoo Snap will recognize and surround it with a border. Left-click to confirm the selection and left-click again to capture its content.
3. The editor
The new capture will then open in Ashampoo Snap's editor. Here, you can make size adjustments or add additional information to your shot using the toolbar on the left. In this example, I will draw a border around a particular segment of the image. For this, I select "Shape" and then "Rectangle".
4. Draw border
Next, I left-click and hold to select the starting position. I then drag the mouse to the desired end position and release the button. Afterwards, I can use the edge markers to resize or reposition the shape.
5. Copy screenshot to system clipboard
The system clipboard makes it easy to paste your screenshot into other applications, like an email client or a word processor. Sharing functionality is located in the toolbar on the right. Click "Copy Capture/Path to Clipboard" to transfer the screenshot to the system clipboard (1).
6. Paste screenshot into word processor
In this example, I'll use MS Word as an example application but you can use any word processor, including Ashampoo Office 8's Write. Switch to the application, in this case MS Word, and position the mouse pointer as needed. Then, hit Ctrl+V to paste the screenshot into the document or use the right-click context menu. Ashampoo Snap can capture more than just screenshots. It's also perfect to record and share videos of your desktop or other applications.
