Storyline 2: Adding Screenshots

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

Articulate Storyline has a nifty screenshot tool for quickly capturing images from your screen. Here's how to use it.

  1. Go to the Insert tab on the ribbon and click Screenshot.
  2. The Screenshot drop-down displays a list of thumbnail images, each representing an app or browser window that's currently open on your computer. (Minimized applications won't appear in the list.) Do either of the following:
    • To capture an entire window, click its thumbnail. (Tip: Hover over thumbnails to see the name of the app or window they represent.)
    • To capture just part of your screen, choose Screen Clipping at the bottom of the list.
  3. If you chose Screen Clipping, your screen will dim and Storyline will temporarily disappear. Click and drag to select the area of the screen you want to capture. The selected area will appear non-dimmed. When you release your mouse button, Storyline will return, and your screen clipping will be added to the current slide.

Screenshots behave like other images. You can move, resize, crop, format, and animate them.
