This is my favorite (free) tool for screen captures. You may think you don't need to capture images of what's on your screen, but once you start using this you'll find it's often helpful. The yellow Jing bubble sits quietly on the side of your screen. If you need to capture an image you just hit Jing, select the area you want to capture, and save the image to your PC or copy/paste it in an application.
Do you hate it when you're reading an article or court opinion, then you see a footnote to a web citation. The citation is 150 characters long, with lots of numbers, "%"s and other muck. You have to be pretty motivated to carefully copy that long string into your email browser. Hence, Bitly exists.
Bitly (and other freebies like TinyURL) shrink those long, unwieldy URLs. All you do is cut/paste your long URL, and bitly spits out a shorter version. That shorter version can be used by anyone, and works the same as the original URL.
I've used Bitly-shortened URLs in plenty of journals and never received any push-back from editors. Likewise, judges have not complained about Bitly URLs in citations in briefs.
