I just thought I'd share how I upload my screenshots as I find that this is the easiest method as well as the cleanest. Might be useful for someone out there!
I'm sure you're all aware that you can use print screen, save it into an image manipulation program, crop said image, save it, forget to save it as the right file type, re-edit the image, save it as the right file type this time, then either go to Wizzley's image module and upload it there or go to an image hosting site, upload it there and then use that URL to get your image into your article.
What if I said you can achieve that in less than 20 seconds without cluttering up your computer with images?
It's simple, but requires a tiny bit of preparation.
- Download Gyazo. It's a very small program so this shouldn't take too long.
- Create a shortcut to this on your taskbar. It should look like this. (It's done by dragging the Gyazo icon onto the taskbar)
That's all the preparation done. Now, when you click the Gyazo button, your cursor will turn into a cross and all you have to do is click and drag to form a square over the part of your screen that you want to upload and release. The box will look something like this.
Gyazo will then open a new tab in your browser with your image uploaded. It'll take longer the bigger the picture is but the longest I've had is about 15 seconds and that's for a large desktop full size image.
From this, you can right-click the image, copy the image URL and then paste that into Wizzley's uploader. They are always high quality .png images so there's no need to worry about if you accidentally saved it as .jpg or another file type.
If you'd like it uploaded to a different site (I'm fairly sure the links are permanent, but I can't be certain) I'd recommend www.imgur.com. Once Gyazo's opened your image in a new tab, right-click copy the image, go to imgur and then press CTRL+V on your keyboard. Click upload and imgur will upload it in a matter of seconds.
You'll want to take the direct link and use that URL. It looks like this. Again, just paste this into your Wizzley module and you're done!
