I will confess something to you…if it wasn’t for this little man…this blog probably wouldn’t of been born. He opened my eyes again to the world!


Tip of the Day for Bloggers/Photographers:

Making A ScreenShot

A screenshot is an image that captures what appears on your computer screen.

Screenshots can come in handy when trying to explain something to Support, or if you want to blog about something you’ve seen on your computer screen.

No matter what operating system you use, you can make a screenshot in just a few steps.


  • Find the Print Screen key. (Depending on your keyboard, the key might be marked “PrtScn” or “Print Screen”)
  • When what you want to capture is displayed on the screen, press the Print Screen key.
  • Open your favorite image editor (like Paint, GIMP, Photoshop, GIMPshop, Paintshop Pro, and others).
  • Create a new image, and press CTRL + V to paste the screenshot.
  • Save your image as a JPG, GIF, or PNG file.

Snipping Tool

Go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Snipping Tool

I love this option and use this a lot.

If you are running Windows Vista or Windows 7 you also have the option of using the built in Snipping Tool.

Sharing your screenshot

Once you have taken your screenshot using one of the above methods, you can use it as you would any image. For example, you can:

  • Add it to a post or page,
  • Attach it to your email to support, or
  • Upload it to your media library, and give out the URL to your image

What are you doing this weekend?

Running 2 kilometers, a nature walk, playing with your grandchildren, walking your dog or renting a comedy?

Your not going to let me be the only one to play this weekend are you?

  2. Little Man is so lucky to have someone special to capture these extra moments of funtime so beautifully Laurie 😉
    He is just the sort of little guy I want to pick up and run off with … *squeal* !

  3. Oh he is just precious!! Those eyes will really keep his parent’s on their toes when he get’s a little older! 😀 (I REALLY like his outfit too!)

  4. The joy of discovery is infectious – that smile not only melts hearts, is shows that he is happy as he learns. Since the full-tome job of the baby and toddler is learning, he is working very hard indeed. A beautiful and precious being!

  5. What an adorable little guy! He must be so much fun. Thanks for stopping by and you nice comment. Thanks too for the tip on the snipping tool. I didn’t even know it was there.

  6. Can I babysit? He’s sooo cute&sweet… 🙂 Btw, our blog is called “Playground”! 🙂
    My very best… Have a playful weekend! 🙂

  7. I just love the expressions you’ve captured on your Little Man. And those blue eyes! Swoon. Your processing of these pics is fabulous. DId you use LR or PS? Presets? Wonderful post and great tips, as always.

  8. Hi. On a Mac (I don’t know about Windows) I find the free program ‘Grab’ is great for ‘snapping’ a bit of what’s on the screen. You just choose ‘Selection’, drag the area you want to take and it immediately displays as a ‘TIFF’ which you can save. To use on WordPress just open it in Preview and save as a JPEG. It’s terrific. Thanks for the ‘like’ on my Vivitar Ultra-Wide-&-Slim post – it’s a wonderful little piece of ‘junk’ camera.

  9. What a cutie pie!
    It looks like it is going to be a busy weekend for me. Have to finish my taxes (boring), bring the dog to the groomer (will have a few quiet hours at home for a change) and some more chores around the house. Hopefully by the afternoon I’ll have some time to enjoy the little bit of sunshine we are supposed to have.

    Here’s to a happy weekend!

  10. Your grandson is adorable and the photos are wonderful! Thanks for the explanation on screen shots. I was asked to provide one on Blogger Forum when I needed help with a problem once and had no idea what they were talking about – wondered if it meant you took an actual photo of your screen – lol! Thanks!

  11. The Little Man is so adorable, and every time I see photographs of him, it makes me smile too! I just checked, and I do not have the snipping tool on my new Dell. Hmmmm? I’ve read up on this snipping tool before, but it does not exist on my laptop. Interesting! I love screen shots too, as it surely makes a huge difference when you can show someone what your screen has on it. Great for instructional uses!

  12. Handsome little man in wonderful photos. And, yes, grandchildren give you a new lease on life with updated lenses to see it with. I’m going to an open greenhouse at our local university today with my granddaughter – we’ll dream about Spring since we’re buried in snow. Have a good one!

Please share your thoughts...and thank you for the love!
