ScreenSteps.me - When 1 picture isn't enough

ScreenSteps.me - When 1 picture isn't enough

We are happy to announce the launch of a brand new service, ScreenSteps.me. ScreenSteps.me will completely change the way you use ScreenSteps. ScreenSteps.me is like Skitch.com or Jing, but for documents you create in ScreenSteps. ScreenSteps.me will let you do much more than just share images though. Through the use of HTML templates you can easily insert your ScreenSteps content into:

  • Email newsletters (this newsletter was created with the help of ScreenSteps.me)
  • Services such as Basecamp
  • Content management systems

You can also share links to your documents via Twitter, Facebook, email, instant message or anywhere else you would like to insert a url.

New HTML Templates

New HTML Templates

You also asked for more templates. ScreenSteps 2.8.7 includes two new HTML templates, Modern and Modern - Black Red. We think that you will like the new designs. We have also gone back and updated existing templates to use a lightbox effect for viewing full size images of your screen captures.

Does the export require the images to be placed as attachments in the footer of the article?

Trevor DeVore

@michael: The Zendesk API does not provide way to hide the images that we attach to the forum post. Zendesk is aware of this. If support for hiding attachments is added to the API then we will update ScreenSteps accordingly.
