Screen Shots

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the post I know it's probably duplicated somewhere. I need a free screen shot program that can capture my screen or part of it so that I can send it via e-mail or past it in a reply to the forum. Any suggestions? Thank you forum friends.

If you are on a PC you have that ability built in. Just press the Prnt Scrn key (usually near the delete button) and then go to you graphics program and click paste, Easy peasy!

For some reason it doesn't work.

Actually there is a step missing. After you hit the 'print scrn' button, you open a graphics program, go to file and open a new document, keep the default size that it opens, then paste it.

 

See if that works.

Jerri,

 

FastStone Capture is a powerful, lightweight, yet full-featured screen capture tool that allows you to easily capture and annotate anything on the screen...

you can find portable version by google: "portable FastStone Capture"

Heres an easy trick, open the MS word or open office word, go to the image or screen you want to capture- print screen-press and CTRL-V in the word.

I have to vote for Patty's FastStone for a great screen capture that I can label as well. I use it a lot.

 

The same things could be done with the print screen button and paint or word, but they take one more step while the extras I want are right with the screen capture action.

Thank you for all your suggestions. I'm will try them all to see which works best for me. :D

 

Jerri,

 

Which solution did you decide on? I LOVE the Snipping Tool that comes with Windows (Vista and Win7 only, I believe). It's very fast, and has options to Save, Send via Email, and even to write on or highlight an area before saving.

 

Or... when using Prnt Scrn ... if you want to capture only the Active Window, try holding down Alt before pressing PrntScrn.
