Use Lightshot to Markup a Screenshot

For you Chrome users, here is a great extension tool that will allow you to quickly take a screenshot, mark it up and share it in an email, document, Google form, or even through social media.

Here’s how you get it:

  1. Go to the Web Store
  2. Search for Lightshot
  3. Click “Add to Chrome”

Now, you’ll see the purple feather up top. Here’s how to use it:

  1. Just click on the purple feather when you’re ready to take a screen shot
  2. Drag your cursor over the area you want to screenshot
  3. Use the tools to add text, arrows, shapes, & highlight.
    • I found that when adding an arrow, I could change the size by using the scrolling button on my mouse or dragging two fingers on my trackpad.
  4. Choose how you want to share it and Voila!

Here’s a quick video tutorial:
