Owely: Instant Screenshot Capture & Sharing

I am sure that people need to capture screens of computers from time to time. Whether for report writing, or the need to backup of information, screenshots are great way to capture the moment.

There are many services for capturing screens – just to mention a couple – MS Paint, and Photoshop. One of my favoured ways to capture screens is by using a program called Owely (

Owely is a hassle free and instant screenshot capturing service tool. It allows you to take a screenshot of the whole desktop or part of the screen, mark some comments on them, and then share them with your friends by sending links from within your Owely account. The process takes only a few seconds.

Here are the steps you need to follow to create screenshots:

1/ Go to

2/ Download and install the desktop client

3/ Log into your account

Note: Owely sits on your system tray where you can easily use it to capture a screenshot

4/ Create the desired screenshot

Note: Once you create a screenshot, you will be sent to the screenshot edit mode where you can draw on it, write a text, or crop the image

5/ Add a title and a description for your completed screenshot before uploading them directly to Owely

You can use Owely for the purpose of taking notes, and webdesign collaborations.
