Print Screen

I put this comment in a different thread, but thought it was important enough to post up here too:


[simpsons comic book guy voice]Best tool EVER - Gadwin print screen. [/scbgv] Go to Gadwin Products It's totally freeware, lets you copy to clipboard or save automatically in multiple formats, and do printscreens of full screen, active window, or a user-determined rectangular section (defined by your mouse). Output in different percentages, etc. etc. It's awesome for training and documentation of software, tons of stuff. I love this program, I wish I had made it myself (of course, I wouldn't give it away!)

It might look like I'm doing nothing, but on a cellular level I'm quite busy.

Sounds good. A little tip if you don't want the whole bells and whistles thing. Hold ALT+Print Screen to only copy the active window.

Thanks for the info FS and Trinity. I will deffinatly use the Gadwin ware cause I like to use the mouse alot.

I was having another problem too. when I went to put the image into paintshop, paintshop wouldn't open it. So I pasted it into Word and then copied into paintshop. The problem was when it pasted into paintshop from Word the image was cut off in the name column and only the other columns were left. I couldn't adjust the darn thing at all. I couldn't grab it to move it or even do anything to adjust the image. It would only past the image one way no matter what I did.

Very frusterating...GGGGRRRRRRR

Yeah, switch to gadwin, and you won't have that problem again. It's very ez to use too, just hit the print screen button, make a box with your mouse and it is automatically copied to the clipboard.

I must admit I've never had a prob just using the kb prt sc, but I guess if you're doing it a lot it pays to make it easier!

For some unknown reason my kb prt sc never worked. And for a person like me that is addicted to the mouse, it just made my life easier.

I use PhotoImpact which has a built-in screen capture feature, but I can also capture screens by pressing Shift PrtScn and then just pasting into an open PhotoImpact window. Perhaps this would work with any photoediting software?
