In my newest TechRepublic article, Use the Firefox password manager, I included eight screenshot images from a total of seven images (I cut one into parts) to illustrate it. This isn’t exactly one of my most intellectually stimulating articles — it’s a howto. It is, however, one of the articles that took the most work to compose and publish.
The problem is screenshots, especially MS Windows screenshots. The process of creating screenshots on MS Windows is several annoying steps long, and a fair bit of work. They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, but I think I’m still paying more than it’s worth, because it’s easier to write a thousand words than to prepare and publish a single screenshot in a TechRepublic article. At least, that’s the case when I have to deal with MS Windows screenshots. I guess it averages out to being as much work as exactly a thousand words when I can use a quick screenshot grabber like
scrot on FreeBSD.
