Let us be frank: Clip2Net is such a cool program that we we're confused that we'd never heard of it before. We can't believe that it's not widely used by our friends on Twitter and Facebook. We think it's only a matter of time before this program takes off, since how can you not love an application that lets you take a screenshot and post it to the Internet with virtually no effort?
Using Clip2Net is incredibly easy. When you're ready to take a screenshot, simply click the icon in the system tray. The mouse cursor will change to an arrow with a small square attached. Then simply drag a rectangle around whatever you want to take a screenshot of. When you release the mouse, the program automatically captures your selected area and opens an interface where the image can be edited; users can add text, arrows, and shapes, and can even draw on the image freehand. From there, users can either save the image to their computer or--and this is where the program really shines--upload it to the Clip2Net server. The program provides a short URL for the image, allowing easy sharing, and users can even choose how long the image remains on the server, from one day to "as long as possible." The program doesn't seem to have a Help file, but that's our only complaint, and it's a pretty minor one; Clip2Net is very intuitive. Overall, we were quite impressed with this application.
Clip2Net is free. It comes as a zip file but installs and uninstalls without issues. We highly recommend this program to all users.
Select a specific part of your desktop area and it upload to the Internet for free. You will receive a link to the image and code to use for publishing image on your blog, forum, or Web site. Drag your files into the Clip2Net Drop Zone or paste them from your clipboard to upload instantly.
