Greenshot - Screenshots Made Easy

It seems that I take a screenshot of something almost every day. I mean, the power to literally take a snapshot of what you can see on your computer screen is invaluable when you need to share something* (that whole "picture is worth a 1000 words thing).  I typically use SnagIt when on the PC (Skitch when on the Mac) to take my screenshots and it is a fantastic and powerful program... but it is expensive too.  Enter "Greenshot", a stripped down, no frills screenshot program that works very well.

Since Greenshot is free, students can install this on their computers and take advantage of the functionality when they are at home.  This opens up the door for them to make tutorials for each other!

* tech support people love it when you screenshot the error message you are getting and then sent that to them.
