Context vs Size

  • Entire screenshots show lots of context, but everything is small and detail is hard to see.

  • Cropped, zoomed-in view show lots of detail, but no context (where to click on the screen to open the menu, for example)

  • Show a full screenshot with a rectangular box around the area you want to detail.

  • Make the box No Fill. Pick an appropriate color for the outline, and make it thick.

  • Copy/Paste the image, and crop it to the size of the rectangle. Resize the cropped shot to show the appropriate detail.
