Capture, Edit, Collect and Organize Images and Full Web Pages with Ember (Mac)

Capture, Edit, Collect and Organize Images and Full Web Pages with Ember (Mac) | Content Curation World |
Collect the things you love, with Ember. Whether you’re capturing photos, screenshots or any other kind of image - save, annotate and sync it with Ember.
Robin Good's insight:

Ember is a Mac and iOS app that allows you to easily capture parts of a screen, a specific image, a whole window or a full web page easily and to edit it, collect it and organize it according to tags, themes/groups and colours.

Ember key strengths are:

a) the image "capture" toolset, which is second to none. It offers maximum flexibility, it is simple, and allows you to save directly to any folder/group/collection you have set-up.

b) the image editor utility that integrates a set of useful tools that includes cropper, focus/blur areas, rotate, add text, freehand drawing.

c) the elegantly designed "library" where you can organize your images and screenshots easily via drag and drop into collections. Each image can also have a description and multiple tags. In addition Ember can automatically sort all your images by colors.

d) the "subscription" area where you subscribe to image feeds from various sites and galleries to get inspiration and ideas.


Ember is a beautifully designed app that does a fantastic job of capturing any kind of image or screenshot from the web and to give you relevant tools to edit it and "curate" it into private collections.

N.B.: Though Ember is really a great app to use, I would not pay its relatively hefty price tag, unless it allowed me to publish or export (in a publishable format) some of my collections.

Free to 14-day trial.

Price £.34.99 

N.B.: Ember requires Mac OSX Mavericks to run.

Capture Any Portion of Any Web Page and Post/Embed It Anywhere with Kwout

Capture Any Portion of Any Web Page and Post/Embed It Anywhere with Kwout | Content Curation World |
A brilliant way to quote
Robin Good's insight:

Kwout is a web app that allows you to grab any portion of any web page, including text and images and to easily post it on your site, blog or on your preferred social media channel.

To use Kwout you install a Firefox add-on or the Chrome extension and whenever you see content you want to "quote" you click the Kwout button and then you select the part of the page you want to quote with your mouse. 

At this point you can select whether to share, tweet or embed your selected quote whereever you like. A unique feature makes it possible for all of the links contained in the part of the page you grabbed to remain fully active and clickable. 

Kwout archives also all of the "quotes" you create and can auto-generate a page that shows your history of cited content.

P.S.: This is not a new tool and it has not been updated since 2011 but it is still working fine.

Free to use.

Captura cualquier parte de una página Web o post para incrustarla en cualquier lugar con Kwout


Kwout es una aplicación web que te permite capturar cualquier parte de cualquier página web, incluyendo el texto y las imágenes y te permite publicarla fácilmente en tu sitio, blog o en su canal de medios sociales preferido.

Para utilizar Kwout debes instalar un complemento o extensión de Firefox o Chrome y cada vez que veas algún contenido que deseas "citar" debes hacer clic en el botón "Kwout" y luego seleccionas la parte de la página que deseas capturar con el ratón.

En este punto puedes seleccionar si deseas compartir, tweetear o si deseas integrar la cita seleccionada en el lugar que prefieras.

Una característica única hace posible que todos los enlaces contenidos en la "captura" permanezcan en plena actividad y te lleven al lugar indicado al hacer clic.

Al mismo tiempo todas las "citas" y archivos que crees con Kwout pueden generar automáticamente una página que muestra el historial de los contenidos citados.

PS: Esta herramienta no es nueva y no ha sido actualizada desde 2011, pero todavía está trabajando muy bien.

De uso libre.

Capture Any Content from the Web and Organize Into Boards with ScissorsFly

Capture Any Content from the Web and Organize Into Boards with ScissorsFly | Content Curation World |
Robin Good's insight:

Scissorsfly is a great new web app which allows you to "photograph" any screen or part of it and to collect and organize these pictures into Pinterest-like boards.

The capture functionality allows you to not just to pick images available on a web page as you would do with Pinterest but it allows you to clip any part of a web page or a full visible screen as you may see fit.

Differently than on Pinterest, the collected items can be easily arranged, positioned and resized on the board.

Scissorsfly provides a Chrome browser extension (Firefox and Safari coming soon) that once clicked provides a small toolbar with all of the key commands available.

Free to use.

Excellent capture and collect tool, provides lots of the original functionalities available in the now defunct Unfortunately there is no ability to capture a full web page, from top to bottom, but outside of this, I really found Scissorsfly to be an excellent tool for capturing and curating ay type of content available online.

Looks promising and pretty for curation.

Very cool! #WebConsultants #WebDesign

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, August 15, 2014 2:25 PM
About ScissorsflyIn the spirit of freedom and creativity, we designed Scissorsfly. For the first time ever, you will be equipped with something that frees your imagination to creatively collect and organize everything you love on the web, and share them with friends.

Scissorsfly originates from an open hackathon hosted at LinkedIn, when Sillicon Valley tech talents from places like Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, or CMU, MIT, Stanford, Berkerly came to play. We won the championship with the idea called ClipIt, which becomes the magic scissors at your hand today. 

Web 1.0 gave you static webpages. Web 2.0 gives you interactions and collaborations with the web and the world. Scissorsfly will give you not only that, but also the initiative to tailor the web at will. It will be an experience beyond the long lasting web 2.0...

Finally, you can run wild with these scissors.
Their MissionCollecting and organizing information is really important to us. However, it could be painful from time to time. We built Scissorsfly for you to enjoy the process.
TeamWe are an early stage startup based in Mountain View (CA) and Chicago (IL). Our team is small and close-knit, with both strong engineering (e.g. Google, Yahoo!, Linkedin, eBay) and research (e.g. security, data mining, machine learning) backgrounds. For anything interesting, drop us a line at
