It’s amazing just how much free stuff we have with Windows (and Macs, come to that).
Often, we look to buy solutions when we have the tools sitting unused on our machines.
Over on the Warrior Forum there was a question about making a screenshot with some graphic effects. A lot of people buy expensive products to do that, but there is a way to do it that is totally free.
You simply take a screenshot using the PrtScn key on your keyboard (might be labelled Print Screen) and then you open up MS Paint (it comes with Windows). Do a paste from the EDIT menu and your screenshot appears.
Voila! Now annotate, or mark up to your heart’s content.
This video clip shows you what I mean.
