Many times, we need the screenshots of a certain website that we want to post on our website or share with friends. Generally in such a situation, most of us go for the ‘Print Screen’ button. It seems to be an easy way but actually it is a tacky task. After printing the screen, we have to adjust the image by selecting the part we need and by cutting out the remaining portion. Many other tools are also available that may help when we need just a portion of the screenshot, but many of these tools are unwieldy. If you are also one who face problem to get the screenshots of the websites, then all you need is kwout.com. Kwout is a small, convenient and easy to use web tool that lets you trim out a portion of a web page and share it.
