Screen Shot Software.....

Hi.....I'm going from an old Mac running OS 8.5 to purchasing a new P4 PC running WinXP Home. I'm looking for Screen Shot Software for WinXP and need some help choosing one. On the Mac when taking a rectangular screen shot of a portion of the screen I used the "command/shift/4" keys and dragged the area with the mouse to take a shot of the portion of the screen...simple.
I was wondering if there is a simple Software program for WinXP to run in the background while surfing the web, that will let me take a screen shot of any portion of the screen, that will send that image to a predefined folder to hold a number of screen shots. Then I can access that folder when off line to open those screen shots in PSD7 or, run in a slide show program. That is all I want the Screen Shot Program to do. Would prefer a program like that which included an easy slide show with it, but, that doesn't matter. Is there a program that you know of that will simply let me do that in WinXP? Can you tell me the name of the program and where I can purchase it?
Thank you for any help with this,
Bob

A freeware screen cap link (there is also a shareware page):

Also check www.tucows.com for more downloads.

While on the general topic of screen caps:

I'm a big fan of SnagIt, which allows you to select exactly the part of the screen you are copying. http://www.techsmith.com/products/snagit/default.asp

Might want to look into a FREE program called Irfanview, whcih is availabe here...

http://www.irfanview.com

It does screen shot capture...and simple slideshows, and webpages, and batch conversions, and batch resizes, and......

A pretty nifty little "tool" for PC photo folks.
