a "screenshot" (also called "screenie" and "screendump") is an image of your monitor.

To make one of these, simply press the "PrtScn" button on your keyboard (hold "Alt" while pressing "PrtScn" to take a picture of the active window only)
Next open your photo-editing software and create a new image. Paste the ScreenDump (as it is saved in your clipboard) into the new image.
Now simply save the image

how do I get the photo from paint shop pro to my email?

Umm .Getting confusing with two threads going.

Baisically you use imageshack to upload your image thus getting a url. Good idea to make it to fit 17" screen.

Copy the url (last in list) and paste in your email. When someone copies and pastes the url, in your email, into the address bar then they'll see your image.

That is, of course, your ISP has no facilities with images.

you can also use word. to do this click the "print screen" button on your keyboard. then open word and right on a blank document. then click on the paste option.

once you have done that save the docoment to a folder of your choice.

open up your mail client and attach the document you have just created to the e-mail you are sending.

right click on the image and select send to email recipient to use email, windows may ask if you want to reduce the size of the pic
