Midlothian Texas Tips & Tricks

Are you having trouble with getting photos onto ActiveRain?

Try using the Snipping Tool!

It has become one of my go to assets in making my blog look the way it does. Here is a quick tutorial on how to use and locate the snipping tool.


1. Make sure whatever image that you are having trouble getting into ActiveRain is open within your desktop. Open the Snipping Tool from the Accessories folder in the Programs section of your computers Start Menu.

2. Click and drag the cursor creating a box around the entire picture or text in which you desire to copy.

3. Click the "Save Snip" button, name the file whatever you like, choose a destination. (I have found it is easiest to find images saved to the desktop.) Select a file format.

4. Insert into ActiveRain and you are good to go!
