This is the quick and dirty way. If you want a better tool (and not paste in photoshop, process, save, ... each time), try SnagIt.


All you've dreaming of about screen capture.

40$ for being able to take screenshots and do some basic editing even MsPaint would cover ... I didn't even see anything in their demo that Words drawing toolbar can't do. I gues i'll keep using my PrtScr key (it's there anyway ;) )

What do you use it for? Why do you feel it's worth the money?

The only way those kinds of apps are of any worth whatsoever are the ones that will screen cap a scrolling-required window...that can come in handy...if it doesn't do that, then it is a waste of money and MB (and even then I can multiple-cap a scrolling screen and get everything lined up in PS in a matter of seconds...still not worth it for me).

WinGrab (current version is 1.5-somewhat, but do a search in google for it) allows to do autosave based on (user-defined) keystrokes or timer, saves as bmp, jpg, png. Can include mousepointer in image and more neat features. Best of all -> it's free

Just press the Print Screen button and paste it in Microsoft Paint. It's been working fine for me...

If you have some type of imaging program they probably have the option or you can at least compress the Print Screen copy of it into a smaller file for a website or e-mailing.

The windows screenshot utilites are crude. SnapIt, Snapper and WinGrab are better. However, the best tools for this that I've seen are the ones built into JASC Paint Shop Pro or ACDSee.
