eBook Creation: Snipping Tool

Microsoft's snipping tool is a wonderful, yet very unknown tool that is found on any PC with windows vista or later. It is the "replacement" for the print screen button. What this amazing tool does is that it lets you take a picture of the computer screen. This picture can be taken in many ways. First is the whole screen option, second is the window option, third is a free form rectangle (which we use in this course) and lastly the fully free form option. Snipping tool is easy to find once you know to look for it. It's also extremely easy to use and you will find yourself pulling it out again and again. Below are some instructions on how to use this tool to create your eBook.
