There are always occasions when you would like to capture a screen or part of a screen from a software program or the Internet and use the image in a worksheet, test, poster, etc.
Over the years I have tried all kinds of programs including the Smart or Promethean Camera tools. But the Free Dowce screen capture tool is even easier and saves you some steps.
Most capture tools require that you paste the captured screen into another program and then save the image as a graphic file. Dowce gives you a choice, immediately save the captured image as a graphic file OR paste the captured screen area into another program. You can do both in one step. Well in two clicks.
Capture the whole screen or just a portion of the screen Dowce lets you define the screen capture area.
Dowce has just made screen capture a whole lot easier and your worksheets, PowerPoints, Publisher files, etc. a whole lot more interesting.
Dowce is a Free Windows program.
Many of us have used Zamzar for file conversion of audio and video but a new online FREE service does even more. Online-Convert will convert the traditional audio and video files but also converts Ebooks, Images, Documents, Hash Tags and Archives to many other formats.

This will take you to another Internet Page where you will Click the Browse Button to Select your file or Paste in the URL of the file. Example: A YouTube movie URL.
There are other selections that you can make concerning the quality of the conversion and audio. I usually leave these alone and click Convert File.
The file will be uploaded, wait for about a minute, and then a window will open asking you to download the converted file.
