A Shout-Out to Kwout

Posted by grizzlymedia on March 25, 2008

Have you ever wished you could copy a screenshot of just part of a web page? Not only that, have you ever wanted to make that part you copied look all cool and smooth and neat, copying just exactly the part of the page you wanted, with groovy, sleek, rounded edges? Well, then you need Kwout! Kwout is so simple to use. And I am all about the simple. Kwout is an easy way to quote a part of a web page with an image map. All you have to do is add the Kwout bookmarklet to your image browser (just right click and then click on “Add to Favorites.” The easy-to-follow directions are right on the Kwout home page. Then all you do is go to the page you want to quote or copy a screenshot from, then click on the Kwout bookmark (click on “Favorites” and then “Kwout,” highlight the area of the page you wish to copy, click on “Cut Out,”make a few selections, but only if you’re in the mood, copy the code, and then embed it into your web page or blog. The code embeds easily into WordPress, which is not a common occurrence. Sorry, WordPress, but you know it’s the truth. We love you, but your embedding skills need a little polishing.
