Taking a Screen Snapahot

  Dinkiz 19:25 21 Jul 2004

Hi All,

Would anyone out there know how I can take a 'snap shot' of the contents of my screen. What I'm looking to do is to basically have a .jpg or whatever of the contents of whats on my screen. I used to do this with a screen capture facility with PSP 7 but no longer have the software. Is there any facility within windows or infact Adobe Photoshop 8 that you can do this with?

Many thanks in advance,
Dinkiz ;o)

Once you have the screen you want, press the 'Print Screen' button.

Then open your 'Paintbrush' program in accessories and paste the (unseen) image.

You can then save that image.

press the shift key and the print screen key(the Prt Scn key is to the left of the pause/break key). Open a program such as paint or other image program and paste your screen....TT

Hi All,

Thanks a million for replying sooooo quickly to my posting. All the options you suggest work great, but I must say the one by Chris the Ancient, works amazing and doesn't require any extra utility download.

Thanks so much again guys,
