Screenshots are a very important part of websites these days. Be careful to avoid unnecessary toolbars and taskbars in screen shots.

  1. Use a region screen shot if appropriate (however the URL is generally helpful in most browser screen shots)
  2. Go full screen e.g. F11 in Internet Explorer, then <Alt>+<Print>
  3. Always have the 'Auto-hide the taskbar' option checked
