Yesterday was the first day of school for students, and although I’ve been on campus for 2 weeks I still didn’t feel like I had enough time to get everything just the way I wanted. Â Time is always in short supply between trainings, teaching, meetings, committees and work, Â so I’m always looking for more efficient ways to complete tasks . One program I return to again and again is snag.gy because it saves time and works great. Snag.gy is a simple website that allows you to copy images from your web browser or your computer, Â and then edit or share them. You don’t need an account to use snag.gy or an account to retrieve the image. Â Images added to snag.gy can easily be cropped, or annotated with text or drawings. Â Once you’ve edited your image, Â it can easily be shared via many social media sites, or via URL. Â As faculty were preparing for the new school year, I used the following image to help them remember how to set their course passwords in our learning management system. Â I have both Jing and Snagit installed on my computer, but I use snag.gy more often than their full-featured cousins. Â Why? Â Because I canÂ quickly take, annotate and share a screenshot without having to download and then re-upload the altered image. Â If I am working in a web-based environment it feels counter-intuitive to have to download an image or screenshot in order to edit or annotate, and then upload again in order to share the image. Snag.gy eliminates these steps so I can help faculty and students more quickly. Â If you haven’t tried snag.gy you should!
