[Kwout] is a web service which allows you to capture portions of websites and turn them into an embeddable image with annotations and active hyperlinks. The image map is totally optional but wouldn’t it be cool to leave it activated? It will allow your users to navigate your “kwouted” images. Of course, if you feel that the image map is unnecessary, you can always turn it off in the settings.
To Kwout a page, just place the URL and press the kwout button. The Kwout editor will appear where you can select the portion of the page you want. Just press the cut button if you are satisfied with the selection. From here on, you can make changes to your kwouted image. You can choose to go with the original cut size or place a fixed width to fit your blog. You also have options to change the decoration of the image such as giving it round corners, placing shadow, border and changing the background color to complement your website design. You can also prevent others from quoting your image and enable or disable the image map feature mentioned above.
This is a great and easy way to get screenshot images to your blog. Plus, you get to choose to activate the links from the original page and place annotations. This is great if you are taking screenshots from websites that have image thumbnails or links that you want your readers to follow.
