How To Take A Screenshot Of An Etsy Treasury To Be Shared on Social Media Sites

I have been asked by some readers how I create the screenshot of the Etsy treasuries I curate. For example, I curated this "Handmade in Purple" treasury last night. Here is a screenshot that I created and shared on Facebook and some other social media sites.

Now, there are many ways in which you can do this. I will explain them all. However, the way that I find to be the most easiest is to simply press Ctrl + P on your keyboard. A screen to print the entire page should come up. It should look similar to this picture.

Next I use Lightshot screenshot tool to highlight and save the area of the page I want, which is the treasury itself. Lightshot also give you the option to upload the area you highlighted as well instead of saving it as a picture. If you choose this option, you will receive a link for your uploaded picture. Simply share the link with what ever social media site you are using. However, be careful not to forget to add the link to the treasury page itself. The link from Lightshot is only to the picture of the treasury.

Instead of using the link, I find it easier to manually upload the picture from my computer (others may find the link easier). For example, I manually upload the picture to my Facebook page and then provide the link to the treasury page in the description area. This is just my preference though.

Another way to take a screenshot is to create the treasury using the Brittany's Best app. This app will save 16 items by providing a box or chest (see below) next to the "favorite heart" on Etsy. Once you have 16 items simply press create, and your treasury is created automatically without having to flip through pages. Once the treasury is created, look under "curator tools" on the bottom right column of the page. You have the option to save the screen using the app. Plus you can send notifications to the featured shops in one message.

The easiest way I know of creating a screenshot is by using Etsy Treasury Tool. I just recently learned about this tool. Basically you just enter the treasury ID, then the number of columns and size you would like the picture to be. Then you just copy and paste the code into where you would like the treasury to be, and that's it.

Do you know of another way to create a screenshot? I would love to hear your comments.
