TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Before you take your screen shots, put your computer's "appearance" on the
Windows default. You should get better captures. With FullShot, consider
converting the capture to black and white. You can save a lot of disk space
and the black and white captures are really great. (You may need to fool
around with the defaults a bit.)
