Screen Shot Software

  J B 11:21 10 Jul 2006

Every so often I read threads that have screenshots attached. In PCA this month there is a program called Screenhunter 4.0. Can anybody tell me if I can use this to help with problems that I have that would require a screenshot to help explain the problem or are there other programs or tricks of the trade that would suffice.

Use 'print screen' to copy then paste into paint, or 'alt + print screen' to copy the active window.

The free version of ScreenHunter is first class, I use it all the time for selectively capturing parts of the screen.

Just downloaded the free version of Screenhunter 4.0 and have been playing with it for a little while, however there is something I do not know how to do. If I want to initiate a thread to this forum and want to send a screenshot along with the thread, how do I do it. At present I am saving the screenshot to the clipboard in Word, so all I want to know is how do I get my screenshot within the thread. I just want to add that I have don't have a problem except the one above. J.B.

Save the picture to your desktop or somwhere memorable and then visit click here

whereby you browse for your picture (desktop) and click on host, copy the resultant link and paste it into a response you make in a thread.

Use this thread as your practice shot.

You can't - unlike some forums this one doesn't let you post images.

From what I have seen from other threads, those that want to post screenshots use a free picture-hosting site, such as Imageshack click here, and then post a link in a thread for people to see.

If you use Imageshack, be sure to copy the LAST link (called "direct link to image") otherwise it will not work properly with this forum. The other links provide things like thumbnails and embedded images.

Keep track of your activity, take a picture of the screen at intervals that are set by you and save them too.

click here and it's free!!
