If you find yourself in this situation, you have a few options:
- Video screen share over Skype or Google+ (handy if you're already connected using one of these, but Skype charges for that now, and you probably weren't already using Google+)
- Take a screen shot and email or otherwise fileshare it to them (thus filling their inbox/Dropbox/etc with an image they probably don't want to keep)
- Save an image and post it on Facebook (but your other 814 friends probably don't care to see it)
Here is another- and, I posit- better way to share a simple image of your screen over the internet.
Step 1: Screen Size
Step 2: Screen Capture
You may not get any feedback, but the screen of your laptop is now on your clipboard.
Step 3: Go to Pixlr
Step 4: New Image
In the "New image" dialog box, adjust the Width and Height parameters to equal or greater than your screen resolution, as determined in step 1.
Step 5: Paste
Step 6: Publish
Go to File>Save.
A dialog box pops up, allowing you to save in various ways on the left side. It defaults to "My Computer", but we will instead select "imm.io" for sharing. Click OK.
After another moment, you will be presented with the "Share complete" dialog box. Copy the URL to share it with someone, or click View to view it online.
Step 7: Share
