Capturing Screens and Windows with the Snipping Tool

Editing and Saving Your Snips
After you’ve captured a snip, the Snipping Tool window changes to Edit Mode. In
this mode, you can mark up a snip by using the pen, highlighter, or eraser tool. By
default, snips are captured using a single-file Hypertext Markup Language (HTML)
format that can recognize separate text and image components. You can also save
snips as JPEG, PNG, or GIF image files so that the entire snip is handled as a single
picture.
Figure 13-3 shows the Snipping Tool in Edit Mode. From left to right, the buttons on
the toolbar are used as follows:
New Snip
The New Snip button switches to New Snip Mode and discards the current snip.
If you click New Snip before saving a snip, the current snip is lost.
Save As
The Save As button allows you to save the current snip as a single-file HTML
document or as a JPEG, PNG, or GIF image.

Copy
The Copy button copies the current version of the snip to the Windows clip-
board. You can then paste it into documents or email messages using Ctrl-V.
Send Snip
The Send Snip button allows you to send the snip to someone in an email mes-
sage. Click the Send Snip Options button to see additional send options, such as
“Send to e-mail recipient (as attachment).”
Pen
Clicking the Pen button selects the pen so that you can use it to add notes to the
snip. Obviously, this feature works best when you have a pen input device. If
you click the Pen Options button, you can set the pen color. The default pen
color is blue. To change the ink thickness, change the pen tip type. To select a
custom color, click the Customize option.
Highlighter
Clicking the Highlighter button selects the highlighter so that you can use it to
highlight areas of the snip.
Eraser
Clicking the Eraser button allows you to erase pen ink and highlights by clicking
on them.
