How to copy and paste in Paint to post in forums?

  CurlyWhirly 20:55 04 Jun 2005

Something has been bugging me and that is sometimes I only wish to send a small section of a website page on to a forum and I managed it once after a lot of trial and error but have since forgotten how I did it!

Is there an idiot proof way of doing this?
It is difficult to explain exactly HOW to do this in the PCA helproom I know but if anyone knows of a few links or websites that would help me I would be very grateful.

Hi. Yes it was that website and I know how to use it to send WHOLE pictures or websites but how to send a partial section eludes me hence my query!

Cheers Powerless.
That's exactly what I was after!

The only thing is that it is going to take a bit of time to take it all in as your video goes a bit too quickly for the likes of myself but I will write the stages down until I know how to do it backwards.
Thanks very much for going to so much trouble. ;0)

After practicing I think I now have it sussed WITHOUT having to refer to my notes.
Thanks again.

Powerless, you're a Star.

Powerless, you're a Star.

He certainly is IMHO as not knowing how to do the above was driving me mad until I saw his video which was much easier to follow than reading some text trying to explain it!
