When you want to take a screenshot of a website and annotate it, better tools are available than the Print Screen button and Paint. Awesome Screenshot stays true to its name and lets you take screenshots of an entire page (no more stitching images together in Word!) or just the part of a page you want. Right from your browser, you can annotate it with rectangles, circles, arrows, and text, and make it look professional by hiding sensitive information with the erasing tool. You can download and attach the result or share it via a link directly.
