  • Screen Shots

    Ok, I'm going to ask a dumb question... I seem to be the only one here who doesn't know how to do a screen shot...

    How do you guys DO that???

    I think just hitting "print screen" will copy it to the clipboard. From there, you should be able to do what you want with it. I'm not positive about the "print screen". It might be Alt+"print screen".

            Hi Jak!

            I have another tip for Screen Shots:

            if you have several windows open in your Desktop, but you'd like to capture only one of them, just click on the one you want to take a "shot" of to activate it, then press "Alt+Print Screen". In this way you'll get the "shot" of what you want and not of your whole Desktop.....

                So now no one has an excuse to not submit illustrated tutorials

                But seriously, folks, I like a program called Fullshot. Bypasses the clipboard and offers many options. There are many other programs out there as well.

                    For the Mac users...

                    You probably already know, but to make a screen shot on a Mac, you have a few options built in:

                    1. Command+Shift+3 captures the current screen and puts it in a file called "Picture n" where "n" is a consecutive number.

                    2. Command+Shift+4 gives you a selection crosshairs so you can drag around what you want to capture - the resulting file is called "Picture n" like above.

                    3. Command+Shift+4 and hold down the control key while dragging around the selection keeps the selection in the clipboard and it can be pasted directly into your favorite program.

                    Can't let those Win folks get ahead of us hehehehe

                      Thanks for posting that, I was going to ask about Mac users. Is there a good screenshot program for Mac users you can recommend?

                        To be honest Doug I don't know of a screen capture program for the Mac. Since they improved the one that is part of the operating system, that's all I've used.

                        I'll have a look and let you know what I find,

                          I have no way of making any recommendations, but there are several screen capture apps for Mac here

                              screen capture of the cursor?

                              Hi,

                              Does anyone know how to get a screen capture of the cursor? My screen captures do not include the cursor, and sometimes I would like to include that in an image.

                              I use win98.

                              Thanks.

                                I've recently bought a 24 inch Imac.

                                Hello All,,

                                Please excuse another very basic question, but it's something which confuses me.

                                What's the actual difference between Fit on Screen, Actual Pixels and Print size.?

                                Is the Print size the actual look (size ) of what the final printed product will...
