Office 2010: Insert Screenshot tool in PowerPoint /Word/Excel 2010

Taking a screenshot and pasting it into a application can be tedious, because in most cases you really only want to show a portion of the screen. With Office 2010, Microsoft introduced the “Insert Screenshot” tool that let you insert a picture of any window, or you can take a screen clipping by dragging a marquee around the desired area. PowerPoint will then automatically place the image onto your slide. Since the screenshot is really just a picture once it’s in PowerPoint, you can add shapes & annotations on top of it. You can even apply photo styles, corrections, and artistic effects. In this case a drop shadow is applied so that picture appears to be floating above the slide. You can also use “Screen Clipping” button at the bottom of Insert Screenshot drop-down to select any portion of visible screen and convert that to a picture. The goal of this feature is to save you some time. It’s also available in other apps like Word and Excel.
