Online screenshot sharing is an important part of our business as well as many other businesses. Being able to show a colleague or friend something on your screen quickly and efficiently helps to expedite communication and other business processes.
ShiftPlanning has a custom developed screenshot sharing tool, SPGrab, that allows users to quickly capture and share computer screenshots over the Internet. Capturing and sharing screenshots for us is crucial as we provide support to users, build tutorials and training modules, communicate with one another and more.
SPGrab is a free application for anyone to use because we believe that everyone should have access to simple online screenshot sharing. We want our clients and the public alike to be able to take advantage of this simple, useful tool, just like we have.
How It Works
SPGrab is a tiny application that runs in the background. It can be evoked at anytime to take a screen capture of:
– Your entire desktop (Ctrl+Shift+F)
– The active window (Ctrl+Shift+A)
– A selected area (Ctrl+Shift+S)
Once SPGrab has captured the image, it allows you to save it on your computer, copy it to your clipboard (very useful for designers), upload it to our quick sharing service SPGrab (for temporary storage), or to your own ftp server (for permanent / private storage).
Currently, SPGrab is only available for Windows, but we will be working to make a Mac version available in the near future as well. If you are interested in getting involved to create a Mac version, for example, please contact us.
To download and begin using the application, visit www.spgrab.com and click the big ‘Download for Windows’ button.
