When I install TinyTake as the Computer’s Administrator, can other user accounts use it? Yes, when TinyTake is installed by the admin account on a computer, the other users on that account will also have the ability to use TinyTake for their screen captures. This includes user accounts and guest accounts.
The Drag me feature in the image editor allows users to drag an annotated image directly from TinyTake to any application that supports images. This makes sharing an annotated image as an attachment much more accessible and faster than before. You can drag to the Windows File Explorer, your email compose screen or your favorite chat application. However, images shared in this manner are not uploaded to TinyTake and hence not available in the “My TinyTake Uploads” screen.
If you have ever felt the need to hide a certain area of the screen capture (because it shows sensitive or offensive information) the Pixelate feature is made for you. Simply select that area in your screen capture image and Pixelate will make it impossible to read/see in that area.
To report a problem, right-click on the TinyTake app icon from the system tray and choose “More” -> ”Report a problem” this will send an email to TinyTake support containing log file along with other required information.
